1967 Donzi Sweet 16

And just like that here’s the cure for your Monday blues. “Sweet” is an understatement for this all original 1967 Donzi Sweet 16 with numbers matching 289 engine. It’s up for auction with NO RESERVE. This 16 ft. classic, all-original,  Donzi speedboat isn’t just surviving, it is thriving! This vintage Donzi speed boat is 50 years old and has hardly been touched. Spending it’s 5 decades of boating pleasure in freshwater has definitely helped it’s longevity. Sure there’s a little fade in the decals and chrome but it is minimal. Beyond the slight fade you can’t claim it’s anything less than classic boating perfection.

I can just imagine kicking back in that wrap around cockpit passenger seating. Wait, hold on, no I can’t imagine that. In my boating dream of the day I’m in the driver seat, as usual, but you are more than welcome to kick back in that passenger lounge. “Kicking back” would be at your own risk in this little speed boat however, at least at the speed I’m planning on driving. That 289 engine is a high performance beast with Holley 4 barrel carburetor. The small block will rip this 16 footer through the water. When not ripping through the wake I can imagine the “gurgle gurgle gurgle” of the 289 as it begs to be unleashed.

Did I mention the numbers match?! How about it’s all original?!What about it’s a 1967 Sweet 16 Donzi  currently being offered at NO RESERVE?! There are already more than 21 bids on it. With a current bid of $4,050 and 6 days left on the block there is no chance it sells near that price. However for the right buyer it’s worth plenty more than double that.
