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".
Hakan, I doubt that you will ever find much about your specific boat. There is no way to find all that information other than by dumb luck or spending countless hours digging and that information would be of little value. Some people are lucky enough to find a boat that was owned only by one or two families and lived a life in one spot and with that you get some history. Nice to know what may have been done to it and feel good about the history but that is it. The CC Archives are closed but all that would do is give you the hull card showing the original equipment and to which dealer it was delivered. I own an SS that has gone through a complete restoration and WILL be in the water this spring. I know the person that I bought it from and I have the hull card. The hull card is of value because it shows what options were on the boat and the specific serial numbers. Without this forum and another I doubt that I would have ever purchased the boat or met some people along the way that have been a source of information and friendship. Most of what I learned about the boat was just plain digging through the internet to find the right items to make it as original as possible. Of course spending an unknown amount of time and money goes along with it.
I also owned a 35CCC Sport Cruiser for 15 years that we just sold. Previous owners were of no value but I did receive a big canvas bag of manuals for most of the items on the boat along with some service records. Other than the time we owned the boat it never was kept more that 20 miles from where it was made in Holland MI. After a few years of living elsewhere we brought the boat back and kept it across the street from where we bought it. It's now in the hands of a new owner in Detroit. I spoke to him once briefly and never heard from him again. He's going to do his own thing as the new caretaker.
Fast forward to this time a year ago. We jumped off cliff and bought a 47CCC. It was always documented so I have ownership information but it is of no value. The people I bought it from only owned it for 6 months and knew very little. I have some manuals and wish I had more but I'll figure it out and scour the net and minds of other owners and the forums for the information I need.
I guess my point is that all the information you need about your new boat on this forum and others that will guide you through maintenance and restoration. There's just not enough of these boats to generate interest other than the nut cases like us that own them. Consider that there were only 86 Commander SS V Drives made and many are gone. There are only a handful of these owners that are active in this forum. That is why there is not much activity.
