    WANTED: 16 with 4.3 that needs motor or 18

    I am just starting to poke around, would like to find a 16 that is all set up for a 4.3 Chevy V6 but needs a motor, really want something that is all assembled with the drive but has a bad engine. I know they are few and far between, but let me know.

    Also would be interested in an 18 Classic 2+3 wit the same scenario, set up for a SBC but needs a motor.

    Thanks, Tim

    Still toying with idea of second boat, anyone has a boat for sale let me know.

    Maybe something needs a motor or something mechanically sounds but needs cosmetics.

    Needs to be 16 or maybe an 18

    Not a V6, and WAY too much of a project I'm guessing.

    http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/m...632327761.html

    ORIGINAL 1965 DONZI SWEET 16' RUNABOUT BOAT.

    DISASSEMBLED,NO MOTOR,160 VOLVO PENTA OUTDRIVE,90 ORIGINAL HARDWARE,WIRING HARNESS,MOTOR,ORIGINAL SPEEDOMETER AND GAUAGE PANEL,

    WAS CONVERTED TO 8CYLINDER BACK IN 1971 BY MY UNCLE. HAD A 351 CLEVLAND MOTOR ,TO REPLACE ORGINAL VOLVO-PENTA 6 CYLINDER.

    HAS ORIGINAL OUTDRIVE LIFT MOTOR AND SWITCH, ORIGINAL STEARING CABLE,STEARING WHEEL,STEARING MOUNTS,ORIGINAL SHIFTER AND REPLACED SHIFTER CABLE.

    I ALSO HAVE THE ORIGINAL RED AND WHITE STRIPED INTERIOR CUSHION,THAT IS DRY-ROTTED BUT CAN BE USED FOR REPLACMENT CUSHIONS,MOTOR MOUNTS,ORIGINAL LIVE WELL COVER,ORIGINAL FOOT REST INSERT,REPLACED 25 GALLON TANK AND HAVE SINCE THROWN THAT OUT.

    I REPLACED THE ROTTED BALSA WOOD CORE IN THE FLOOR,ENGINE TOPSIDES AND THE SEATS. THE STRINGER WERE REPLACED BACK IN THE LATE 80'S. THEY SUGGESTA CLOSED FOAM CORE AS THE NEW REPLACEMENT OR YOU COULD GO ORIGINAL AND REPLACE WITH BALSAWOOD...BUT IT SHOULD ALL BE REPLACED AT THIS POINT,SINCE THE BOAT IS TOTALLY DISASSEMBLED. I REMOVED THE TOP LAYER OF FIBERGLASS IN THE BOW ,SO IT IS SAGGING WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF THE INNER CORE AND FIBERGLASS ENCASING. THIS IS VERY RARE FIRST YEAR DONZI SWEET 16'.

    COMES WITH ORIGINAL TRAILER.

    BOAT IS IN WALDORF ,MD 20601 AND MY CELL IS 240-682-0619 LOREN
