CHRIS CRAFT COMMANDER FORUM ® .......A photo-intensive technical reference file and ongoing newsletter regarding the original fiberglass Chris-Craft Commander series. This is an independent not-for-profit and non-commercial web site, not affiliated with the Chris Craft Commander Club ~~ or ~~ Chris-Craft Corporation. Our mission here is to "have fun and share information" about the Commander series (and those associated fiberglass boats on the Chris-Craft family tree) for your individual personal use, and by doing so help promote the good name of Chris-Craft, and help preserve, restore, and appreciate Chris-Craft boats. The main reference feature is the ever expanding MASTER INDEX File which contains what we believe to be the world's largest collection of documentation photos and technical information on the Chris-Craft Commander line of boats, (like these original brochure scans, featuring the iconic first 38 Commander styled by Fred Hudson, and many of the great Dick Avery renditions that followed) , (a huge collection of Chris-Craft 427 tuning and specification information), and a few words about how to use the forum.

We extend to you a cordial "WELCOME ABOARD !" Come on in, make yourself at home, we are a friendly group of enthusiasts, and we also appreciate the classic Chris Craft Roamer, Corsair, and Lancer boats too , as they are all on the same family tree and share much in common ! Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".

Response to There is still more to the story...

Just an update, Jerry has been digging through his parts bin and has located the missing windshield piece believe it or not, which got seperated by a previous owner who was holding a hack saw, ahem. In any case I have it now and am planning on put it back into service, I'll show how later but it will look dead original.

In addition last week my friendly front desk office manager marched into my office and said "you have a really grungy looking delivery up fromt", at which time a big guy from Federal Express who must have been 7-feet tall walks in with two (2) of the missing deck pieces from my 1973 that Jerry just shipped to Nashville. I was sorta wishing he left them down at the loading dock 18-floors below, but hey it was just a sort ride on the freight elevator back down.

You can see them here in the back of my XC70 ready to head to the ranch. All this stuff is being used, the plan is in operation now, it is moving slow but sooner or later the 1973 Lancer will be running (faster than ever before) under its own power once again.
