1951 Chris-Craft Rivera

“This is a Project.” No shit. It’s a 1951 Chris-Craft Rivera, but this 18-foot mahogany cruiser looks more like an old wooden barrel that’s been used as a planter for the last 40 years. On the plus side, you’re not going to find many Chris-Crafts this cheap.¬†Unfortunately, the seller wants you to guess on all the other details. There’s no motor in the boat, but there’s a picture of one on a pallet, and “most all” the hardware is there. It’s in Stillwater, Minnesota, where it no doubt plied the waters of the St. Croix River in its better days, and you can Buy It Now for $6,000¬†. That’s a Chris-Craft. For $6,000. It’s looks a little prettier with that price tag.
