  • 1956 REAL MERCURY 55H FOR SHOW OR CLASSIC RACING

    THIS IS AD I'LL BE PLACING ON E BAY IN NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS.


    1956 REAL MERCURY 55H FOR SHOW OR CLASSIC RACING
    All numbers match with original serial plate, #984298. All original except owner/West Coast racer converted to Factory upgrade to Tilllotson KA7A carbs in 1959. Rebuilt to factory specs by Wienandt March 2004. Std. bore and 120+ psi compression. Foot rebuilt by Ron Thomas. Original chrome factory steering bar. Raced twice, Wakefield Nationals, with less than 2 hours running time since rebuild. Restored to original factory 1956 paint scheme. Absolutely perfect to show but should be run as itís a strong engine. Would be perfect for Classic racing. Asking $4500 by PayPal. Must be picked up in Greensboro, GA.
    I also have full sized Frame patterns for a 50ís Sid Hornet DU and a Stippich 1969 DSR available. Also many 2 & 3 blade SS DSR props available. Jon K Walters

    What models and years of Chris Crafts do you have? A number of years ago I restored a Century Resorter, mid 1960's year. They were the official Tournament Water Ski Boat before the Master Crafts that showed up in the 1970's.

          West Marine has a heavy duty dolly made by Garelick and Amazon has an assortment. None now available like mine as I bought them on a clearance sale a few years ago from West
