PHOTO OF THE DAY EDITORIAL:
The Photo of the Day is a 23 Commander, or is it a 23 Lancer Premier, heck better check that serial number becuase it could be either one. In 1968 Chris-Craft produced their first 23 Commander with the v-drive options that included a 327F or 427 motor option. In 1969 the same boat was offered with a slightly different topside, featuring a smooth foredeck and side swinging center windshield. One hundred and fifteen of these boats were produced in those two years. Then in 1970 the marketing scheme changed and only twenty five (25) additional 23-foot hulls of this type were produced, all with 427 v-drive power delivery, under the name of Lancer Premier Super Sport. This is one of those 25, owned and restored by Freeman Coles, of Lebanon, Tennessee. Virtually everything on the boat has been tended to. All the wiring, upholstery, instruments and hardware have been removed. All new or restored pieces have been re-installed. And lets not forget about the motor, yes this one is a 427 powered boat and the motor was alwo totally disassembled and rebuilt to marvelous mechanical and cosmetic standards. For more on this great restoration story, including many more photos, videos, tech information and a complete chronology of the restoration and recent shake-down cruise, check out the following link.
