Note: you can search all of Craigslist by using Google. Example, CQ is looking for a 1" shaft.

Just type in "craigslist 1" shaft" and you'll find hits in any/all areas w/o having to perform many searches.

That Wildcat really caught my eye. Seems to be a good price especially if it is original color and gel.

Paul, the Classic is hurtin'. Lots to do in spring. Wanna go half-ies on the 68?

Good Google tip, HW. I use www.crazedlist.org to search all of or specified regions of CL. You need FireFox not IE, but it works great. I'm using it to hunt down a new snowboard for this winter.

BTW, why does 68% (87% if the word bent is included) of all posts eventually come back to CQ's and H'wood's shafts?

That Wildcat sure needs a better home than the Lake of the Ozarks; it's about 12' too short. Let me know when work slows down so I can see that new ride. (You'll be happy to know I've been cleaning my old bike.)

The tube is a automatic 5 point deduction with the ACBS and about 50 off if I'm judging!

That's what I was thinking. Stranger things have happened. It would be worth it if that are indeed 427 cobra engines that are complete and running. I can not contact people on craigslist from work, because of our stupid firewall. I am going to email him when I get home to see if he has any documents or pics to back up his claim.

Those are pretty rare engines, so I would think it would be a steal, if they were really Ford 427s. BTW, I like that boat, although it is too much boat for me.

They could be chevy 427's but that would be pretty hard to mistake a 427 chevy for a 427 cobra jet. I just thought I would post to see what others thought. As we have wuite a few members here with vast amounts of boat knowledge that go farther then just ski boats.

Those are indeed more than likely 427 Fords, but hardly "Cobras". Believe it or not guys, but there were by far more 427 Fords installed in boats than in any cars. But it wasn't a hot engine by any means, just heavy duty. It was the big block mainstay used for the 300hp Chris Craft, Interceptor and Crusader marinization package used from +/- 67' up thru about '71-72, long after it was available in a car. But at only 300hp at only 4000rpm. It had 352-390 spec small-valve heads etc. But make no mistake about it, the cross-bolted, 4-bolt main cap blocks still bring large bucks today, and which all of these engine were/are. In this case someone just told this guy that this was the engine that Ford provided for the AC Cobra (same block only), and voila, a Cobra engine. However, Holman Moody and Interceptor both offered much higher HP marine versions of this engine. You can see in the REFERENCE section back in certain 65-67 boats where the Interceptor 400HP 427 was available as a high performance option "without a warranty". Holman Moody took it multiple steps further all the way up to 600-700 HP marine engines. MTCW.

427ci in a 60's CC? Now thats crazy talk.

If the marine block was the same as the Cobra's, I assume it was only a head/intake/cam away from making Cobra type power? The 400hp Interceptor must have been pretty close.

My uncle's cris has a 283 in it. But when his uncle ordered it new it had the option of a 427, but I believe it to have been a 427 chevy. Either way my great uncle Chuck said with gas prices at 17 cents a gallon for premium he just couldn't see buying the big motor. Crazy eah.

By the way thanks for the extra back ground info. It's always great to learn something new about boats.

Fairly common, as some have said already, to find a 427 ford motor in a marine application. What is rare, and would designate it as a "Cobra" motor, is the side oiler option. The motors in the Cobra cars had to have the side oiler configuration to fit into the chasis. I have a friend that responded to a add here in the Northwest for a large wooden cruiser that was rotting away. It turned out to have side oiler 427 twins in it that he resold for almost $9000 each as rebuildable cores! More than paid for the trouble of retrieving the boat!

I've got a 1967 Car & Driver that tests a 427 Cobra. The article states that the engine is really a 428, and not the 427 because Ford found the 427 way over powered for street use and decided to cheap out on the non race cars.

I wonder if that was done with boats as well?

Copied and pasted from the engine manual section on marineengine.com:                           427 Ford Operators, and illustrated parts.

It's a Ford that Chris marinized. Reid, I think you're right on regarding the 300HP. Low RPM but tons of torque. Probably 2:1 reduction tran's swinging maybe 18" props.

The comment about them being Cobras, is from the sellers own mind! I guess since we have a ebayhole thread that we'll now need a Craigslisthole thread too!!

normally you'll see paragon p-400 series behind them, you see this combo in the Chris Craft Commander's, solid lifters with adjustable rockers. heavy monsters, because of the side door we ended up assembling the engines in the salon of the boat because they would not fit complete thru the door, if i remember correctly they were 300 ponies as noted above and 310 on the torque. and to think as part of a repower a few years back to BBC's the guy ended up giving me both of his engines (427'S) as part of the deal and sold i them for $500.00 each, i should say i gave them away. i didnt know the value of them at the time.... i do now

Im betting the torque was a lot more than that (maybe closer to 500?). The 351w is up around 375 lb ft, so a big block should put out a lot more than that.

If it was rated at 300 hp at 4200 that would be 375 for torque at that range peak torque would have been higher most likely but I doubt they were over 425. I can hit 460+ with the 408 but when on the dyno I couldnt maintain it over 4400 rpm ended up with peak hp at 443 torque at 4750. It would be interesting to know the exact speed those 427s were rated at it could be as low as 3800 rpm, or it could be higher than they were very low compression engines. Either way well suited for a cruiser, lousy for a ski boat.

The latest in the line of CC beast wakeboats, the new Super Air Nautique 480.

Would depend on what the torque curve was, with that motor the torque may not fall off as fast as you think. I would like to see the specs on the torque curve before ruling it a tug boat motor.

Bruce, The 427 is a Chris Craft marinization. I don't know what boat the picture was taken in. My reference on Chris shows HP's without CI. so I'm not too sure. There are 300 HP's listed in the 23' Continental and larger but I'd say it isn't the 427. I'd rather say it was used in larger cruisers and like Eric mentioned twin installs.

James, With a 2.5:1 trans on it swinging say a 24" 4 blade prop, I'd say it would make a good tug boat engine! That's 1095 Ft. Lbs. of torque available at 1160 RPM!

Pete, the only 300HP engine I'm aware of Chris Craft using up thru about '72 was the 427 Ford. Have you seen other big block or higher HP options? I've actually seen some 427s in several of the smaller Chris' and more commonly in the Centurys, some even in the 17' Resorters, but more in the 19s and 21s, which were Interceptor packages. Along these same low tugboat HP levels of the times, a standard 426 Chrysler wedge was only rated at 290HP (some of those in CCFan diaries), a 430-431 Lincoln Chris Craft was only 275 HP. But hey, MerC was building 300HP 454s just a few years ago, and maybe still are.

If someone is fortunate enough to run across one of these 427s for decent $$, buy it, or at least call me. And I'll bet a cam re-grind among other things could raise that torque curve and HP quite a bit.

Another good pick of the 427 Chris engine option. Love that shiny brass/copper:

Reid, You are probably correct. The 23' Continental is plenty big enough to handle a 427 (even twins) so it must be the same 300Hp version. I do see a couple listings of 370HP V8 in Chris Crafts but it doesn't say who's engine it is. I do know they were using some Cal-Cadillac's so the 370Hp may be the Caddy.

Pete,
I did not mean the 427 couldn't be used in a tug boat. Rather I was reffering that, that would not be there only use. That it would be quite likely that they would make a decent if not good ski boat motor.

I sent it through CCFan, so it probably got picked up by your spam filter like mine does- I have to wade through it to make sure I dont miss emails from this site.

It was just regarding the Indmar parts and sending you the link for that Mustang, which I presume is the one youre talking about? Looks to be a '70, and I guessed it has the 273 (not 269). Hows the gel look? If it doesnt need much, someone should pick it up for $2k. Not many yellow ones around!

Well, we havent ruled that out yet.

Thats green, Mark? Looks yellow in the pics. Same color as this Barracuda? (Forgive me, I forget the owners name- beautiful boat!)



Edit: The term is not "snot green" Mark, its "pea soup green." I love the color too, and hope to be adding one to the fleet in the same hue. If anyone knows what the actual name of the color is, Id love to know it. Reid and I were speculating that it may be called some sort of gold, as the greens he's aware of that are listed for similar years are darker (like Gary's and Rodney's).

I've been going down there since I was 6 years old with my family.That comes up to well over 30 years for me right know.I know that lake like the palm of my hand.It would be a cool lake for a CC reunion.We used to rent houseboats out of Star Point Resort,but here lately we have been renting out of Wolf River Resort.

your way up the river, don't get that far too often. Been going there since the late seventy's went out of horse creek since my step-dad went to school with the owner and we would get about three-four house boats each year all at a discounted rate. Not the best boats on the water but fine for use at the time. Now we go to the trailer or a friends house boat.

I've been all the way up the Obey river on sea doo's before.In fact to the point where you had to stop about 200 feet before you cant go any further and you see the lake herrings in the middle of the creek catching fish.Its a cool ride up that way,very winding.I've been to the jump cliff near wolf river.That a big hangout for boaters and to go cliff jumping.This past Labor day I was down there and we noticed just a ton of boats going back into this large finger of the lake near sunset dock.We got back there and there must have been 400 boats all anchored and partying.Not to mention the 50 or more houseboats tied up on the shore.There were boats drag racing and drunk people everywhere.Hell even the ride up to the dam is pretty cool.But we used to rent hoseboats from star point and they weren't the best either,But at least it got you on the lake.
