FOR SALE 1979 Spectra V-Drive
Rigged by my father, Bob Teague, at Burbank Marine in 1978.
This boat is IN FACT the VERY FIRST 19 Spectra V-Drive ever built, 19's were only jets before this one.
It is in excellent all original condition.
It is laid up extra heavy with 4 full length stringers.
I cannot emphasize how original this boat is.
It was owned by a friend of the original owner and has been stored inside its entire life and used only a couple of times every season.
He sent us an email about the boat that lead to me purchasing it less than a year ago.
This is a truly turn key retro river rod!
It runs 80 MPH and handles chop like a much larger boat.
Everything about the boat is original 1979 hardware, unless noted below:
454 LS6 BBC w/ Edelbrock UR2X tunnel ram and Holley mechanical 660's. Engine was rebuilt and converted to hydraulic roller about 10 years ago.
I rebuilt, painted and tuned the carbs.
Full new MSD Ignition, Billet Remote oil filter and oil cooler, Aeromotive Fuel pump and new fuel plumbing installed myself.
Art Carr Polished Turbo 400 3 Speed Transmission
Casale 10 Degree Split Case V-Drive.
22-25% Gears I figure by speed vs. RPM
3 Propellers including rare Federal SuperStainless zero rake
Finish line mechanical Cav Plate Pedal/Lockout
IMCO Aluminum Fuel Tanks (18 gals each)
Drop Through Strut
New Custom Livorsi Tach and GPS Speedo.
All other gauges are original Stewart Warner and 100% functioning.
Original Gel and back to back bench Interior w/ matching scoop cover
Nice Bimini with storage mounts and cover.
Tandem Axle FotoGraphics Trailer
Full Towing Cover
Registration is current and titles are in hand.
It really bums me out to list this boat, but sometimes life throws you a curve ball.
Really cool owning something with such a backstory.
Asking $18,000
