Has anyone seen the 1981 Classic 18 on e-bay w/ 383 stroker engine for 15K? Does a top speed of 73 sound right? Aluminum heads and intake? I know my alum intake was erroded with only Lake Michigan use. What's it worth?

The boat belongs to Lee a board member, search for his posts. The 18 setup that way is a really good package.

Not sure about that boat in particular, but I've been in an X-18 with a 383 running 70+ (Hedgehog's boat). The two boats have the same hull, so I imagine it's legit.
