Sold: 1959 Family Cruiser

Postby MetalHead » Mon Jul 14, 2014 9:28 pm

Selling my 59 Family Cruiser.

A project boat for sure, but very cool platform.

I am working on it slowly in the mean time.

What would a Decent shape 1958 Family cruiser not running be worth? I know that is very subjective....lol It does not have a trailer and I was curious also how much it would weigh?

Weight about 4200 pounds.

Not running value, I would think around $2,000.00 ish . But would need to be in good shape.

Got any pictures?

Well here is what I see:

1. No title. That may or may not be a problem if you can't talk to the previous owner.
2. That walk around would need to be cut off IMO. Looks like a hack job at best. That bomb would have to go as well.
3. Condition of the swim platform, may have to come off or be redone.
4. Engine - That Graymarine may or may not run
5. Interior - Total redo will be needed. More time than money here. May have to replace the ceiling panels.

Again I'm in the 2K ish range. I bought the 59 at the top of this thread in that range and sold in that range close to 3K actually, but I think it was in better shape than this one. I added PICS of the day I bought it and PICS of how the new owner has restored her.
