Contact Name: Mike Phone: 209-962-4982
"The MERCURY Super Custom is built of a combination of materials, including factory fiber glassed plywood sides and bottom with a deck finished in a natural tone mahogany.
Outfitted with chrome hardware, the Super Custom boasts the popular wrap-around windshield and comes complete with soft-hued upholstery and an attractive instrument panel." (Taken from an article in the April 1958 Boats magazine).
I restored the boat in 1994 and have used it approx. 20 hours per year to present.
The boat has always been stored inside and carefully maintained.
The engine is an OWENS Flagship conversion of a 327 small block.
The engine starts and runs beautifully.
This package includes the CALKINS galvanized trailer.
Stereo with cassette player and two speakers mounted in the forward cockpit.
Electric, mounted in the stern bilge.
New in 2008.
Always stored in garage.
Never subjected to the weather.
Bunk type Calkins trailer.
Has 6 foot extending tongue for easy launching in shallow water.
The tongue is retracted with a 12 volt winch with trailer mounted battery.
For super low speed while on small lakes, closed waterways or when docking, I have mounted a 55 lb. thrust Minkoda electric motor on the stern.
