We found Black Box, a 1940 Deluxe Runabout fully restored by Freedom Restoration in Minnesota. She’s one of only 31 built. Virtually every stick of wood is new, powered by her original Chris-Craft six cylinder model MS engine, green leather upholstery with horsehair seat backs and kapok cushions sporting original-style Chris-Craft labels.
She’s been brought up to modern safety levels and has reliability upgrades which include fully fused 12 volt electrical system wired with vinyl-insulated cloth covered wire and fuel system meeting current ABYC standards.
You can own this beauty for $225K. The asking price includes an accompanying Sunbrella waterline mooring cover and new Loadmaster tandem axle trailer custom fitted to the boat.
