1974 Rogers BonnevilleThe hull has original yellow gel which is in amazing shape. The brown is paint and it is about a 6 out of 10. The hull is capped and it has no major stress cracks. The full length stringers are beautiful. The floor is new, the carpet is new, and the seats are new including the wood. All of the gauges work. All cables and hoses are new. The engine is an original over the counter LS-6. The block is is a true 4-bolt 289 casting that is .030 over and has new TRW Pistons 11:1 The crank is the original steel, cross drilled, tuff rided part turned .010 on both the mains and rods. The rods are the original big 7/16"bolt rods. The heads are 291 casting square ports with all new valves, 2.25 int. 1.88 ex. The cam is a Clay Smith solid flat tappet. .590 lift 292 advertised duration. Comp cam SS roller rockers, magnum push rods and Crane stud girdles round out the valve train. The oil pan is a 14 qt Dooley. The engine also has a Fluid Damper balancer and a JW solid steel flex plate. The intake is an old school torquer with a new 750 CFM HP Holley. I have the dyno sheet on the the engine and it made 490 HP @ 5700 RPM. The ignition is all new MSD 85551 distributor and 6AL box. The fuel pump is a big Clay Smith mechanical. The pump is freshly rebuild by Bergeron here in AZ. It has a "B" cut SS impeller, new Place diverter with FTN. It has a nice new custom loader and original Rogers ride plate assembly. The boat runs @ 5800 RPM flat out. It does run on pump gas but it does need a generous amount of octane booster along with modest timing. The trailer has all new bearings and almost new tires.what it needs. The trailer needs painted, the paint is is old faded and has a ton of chips. The trailer is in great shape but it looks bad. The brown paint on the hull needs redone. It shines great but has bubbles and chips. It does not need any repairs, just fresh paint. And finally, the port side fuel tank has a leak. It is an aluminum tank which is easy to fix but not a fun job. The tanks are 15 gallons each and I am usually done after one tank of fun. I finished all of the work in December of 2013 and have used the boat very little since. I would estimate it has about 20 hours on the whole thing. It just sets in the shed and collects dust. It Runs 78 MPH in Parker and 72 MPH at Phoenix area lakes.
I'm tired of looking at it sit and collect dust. Asking $5,500.00 turn key, or $3,500.00 less engine & ignition.
