THIS IS A 1956 21 FOOT CENTURY CORONADO.  I HAVE OWNED THE BOAT FOR 20+ YEARS.  IT WAS A PRETTY NICE BOAT TO START WITH BUT  I WANTED TO HAVE IT DONE CORRECTLY SO I HAD THE WOODWORK DONE BY FERDINAND NIMPHIUS BOAT WORKS IN NESHKORO, WI. YOU CAN SEARCH FOR FERDINAND NIMPHIUS ON THE INTERNET TO SEE HIS CREDENTIALS.  HE WAS ACTUALLY FEATURED ON 60 MINUTES FOR A BOAT HE BUILT.  HE TOTALLY REPLACED ALL BOTTOM RIBS IN WHITE OAK, ALL NEW BATTENS WHICH ARE WIDER THAN THE ORIGINALS, AND ALL BOTTOM PLANKING.  HE ALSO REPLACED THE FRONT AND REAR DECKS AND SOME STRUCTURAL WORK AND A COUPLE SIDE PLANKS.  I REFASTENED ALL SIDE PLANKS AND THE COVERING BOARDS AND HAVE STAINED AND VARNISHED THE DECKS, TRANSOM AND THE SIDES.  AT THIS POINT, THERE IS APPROX. 8-9 COATS OF VARNISH ON THE DECKS AND SIDES.  I HAD MOST OF THE CHROME REPLATED BUT NOT THE WINDSHIELD FRAME AND ONE LIFT RING WHICH ARE THERE.  THE WINDSHIELD FRAME IS NOT PERFECT BUT IN VERY NICE ORIGINAL CONDITION AS ARE THE ORIGINAL GREEN TINTED PLEXIGLAS WINDSHIELDS. THE ORIGINAL GAS TANK WHICH IS IN GOOD CONDITION IS INCLUDED BUT WE RAN OUT OF PICTURE SPACE.  THE ORIGINAL GAS CAP IS ON THE TANK BUT HAS NOT BEEN REPLATED.  I HAVE AN EXTRA TEMPERATURE AND AMP GAUGE TO REPLACE INCORRECT GAUGES ON THE DASH.  THE ORIGINAL HORSE HEAD GAUGE IS ALSO INCLUDED.   I WAS PLANNING ON USING A CHRIS CRAFT 283 MOTOR AND TRANSMISSION.  I HAD LISTED THE BOAT WITHOUT A MOTOR SO WHOEVER MIGHT BUY IT CAN DECIDE HOW THEY WANT TO POWER IT.  I HAVE A COMPLETE 283 185HP MOTOR AND TRANSMISSION THAT IS DISASSEMBLED BUT ALL THERE AND WILL BE AVAILABLE TO THE BUYER IF THEY ARE INTERESTED AT $750.00.  THE BOAT COMES WITH THE OPTIONAL HARD TOP AND FOLDING TOP.  I DO NOT HAVE THE BRACKETS WHICH MOUNT TO THE HARD TOP FOR THE FOLDING TOP.  MOST OF THE ORIGINAL DECKS AND OTHER REPLACED LUMBER IS STILL WITH THE BOAT. PICTURE #14 SHOWS WHAT THE BOAT WOULD LOOK LINE WHEN IT IS RESTORED.  WHEN THE BOAT IS DONE, I BELIEVE IT DESERVES A NEW TRAILER.  I DO HAVE SOME USED TRAILERS THAT WOULD WORK FOR THE BOAT IF NEEDED CONTACT ME, JOHN,  AT 630-947-3909 TO GET MORE INFORMATION OR IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS.  I HAVE TRIED TO PROVIDE A REASONABLE SELECTION OF PICTURES.  I HAVE MANY MORE AND WOULD BE WILLING TO EMAIL PICTURES IF YOU CALL TO TELL ME WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.  WE ARE REQUIRING A $500.00 DEPOSIT WITHIN 48 HOURS AND EXPECT FULL PAYMENT TO BE MADE UPON PICK-UP OR WITHIN 10 DAYS WHICH EVER COMES FIRST.  
I HOPE MY OPENING PRICE IS A VERY FAIR PRICE AS I PAID NIMPHIUS BOAT WORKS CONSIDERABLY MORE THAN THE STARTING BID NOT INCLUDING MY ORIGINAL PURCHASE PRICE AND THE COST OF PLATING AND THE WORK I HAVE DONE MYSELF. THANKS AND GOOD LUCK, JOHN.
