I have come to realize I just don't have time to use this boat and would like for it to go to a good home.

Here is a little info on my Lancer.

Hull No. 3 of 25 built and retains the 427 showing 272 hours. This Lancer was purchased new by James Leake. The founder of Leake Classic Auto Auctions and remained on Grand Lake in Oklahoma all it's life. I do have the hull card from the Mariners Museum which I will include in the photos.

She was winterized about 3 years ago by the marina. I have not had it started up yet but has good compression. I am waiting on the Petronix parts to arrive including new coil, cap, rotor and plug wires. The spark was too weak to fire her up so I decided to order the upgrade instead of replacing the points. I am planning to install the components and have it fired up by this weekend. Original carburetor was rebuilt by a member of the forum and looks like new. I also ordered and installed a complete set of hoses including the sea water pick up hose from Henkel. The boat was repainted in the last ten years the original color. It looks decent but not perfect and the rub rail replaced but not with the correct type but an easy fix. Upholstery is in very good shape for being original with a small tear in the rubber floor covering which is still available. I believe the docking lights were added in the early 70's as they are period correct and I think look nice on it. Also includes a new full cover.

Trailer is a 2007 Prestige with less than 800 towing miles on it. We modified it to fit the boat and it tows great. Re-packed all bearings and added bearing buddies to the axles. There are less than 50 miles on them.

I hate to sell it but continuing to pay for inside storage with no time to use it doesn't make sense. If you would like additional photos please let me know.

This is a great opportunity to own a rare boat and only one of the two that I know of to retain it's 427.

Has a clear Title in my name with registration up to date until 2018. Trailers are not Titled in Oklahoma but I have the MSO for it.

Stunning boat! Do you know how much was repainted?
Deck? Cockpit? Hull?
Thanks, Craig

Changed out the points to the petronix along with new cap, rotor & wires. Although the wire kit Sierra 18-88421 had extremely long wires and the coil wire not near long enough. My coil bracket looks to be in the factory position.

Anyway after changing out the electronics I couldn't get the fuel pump to prime even after running for a bit so I will assume the fuel pump needs rebuilt.

On the upside she sounds amazing with no smoke or leaks of any kind. The carb choke needs a little adjusting and she never became warm.

Without any further adieu here is the video;
