1964 MFG Westfield For Sale!

I bought this boat about 6 years ago in Elgin, Ill. It has been in my shop and a rainy day project ever since. It has been cleaned, buffed, waxed many times. The gel coat is terrific looking. The sides and hull have been scrubbed and had several coats of Poli glow applied. The windshield is way above average for this year of boat. All hardware and emblems are intact. If you are looking fro a great old vintage boat, this may be the one for you. MFG's were the sport utility of boats in the 60's.
They were made of all fiberglass composite construction except for the transom core, which I have replaced on this boat with a Nida-Core composite transom. It was all done from the top side, with no damage to cosmetics or thru-hull fittings.
The 1968 Evinrude Speedifour has been completely serviced and runs like a champ. New after market CD pack, NOS solenoid, and rebuilt starter.
The TeeNee trailer has been sanded, painted and new decals applied. All roller hardware was replaced and most nuts and bolts. It looks very sharp. Trailer is completely wired and ready to ride. Wheel bearings cleaned and packed and new seals.
If you have ever restored an old boat, you know what is involved. This boat could be in the water in a couple of weekends! What is needed:
Carpet, seats, battery and a wire steering cable. I have all the hardware.
