Looks like it might go for short $$ ...but the motors are definitely not 525 Hawks. Look closely, they appear to be 330/454's (notice the low cast iron intake manifolds) Someone put the Hawk flame arrestors on.

Yea, nice touch. Kinda makes you wonder about the rest of the details.

So lets see, original black dash and helm and gauges, redo white and replace gauges, throttles and shifters, what 3 to 4 grand. Interior definetely needs redone, cockpit 5 grand. That doesn't count redoing the cabin interior which is still all origingal. Nice graphic paint. 10 grand. So if you can buy it for less than 40K might be a good project boat. But then you still have 454s not 502s, and the original ugly cabin interior mmmmmm.

Or....

It may not be the nicest Bullet on the market today, but it sure is the lowest priced (for now).

Being a pessimist, I would suspect that it is "too good to be true".

Yes 454 with Weiand 177 blowers, I heard that Gary Smith (Carolina Racing came up with this combo before Merc had their 525 blower motor)

With those numbers... if/when i buy a project boat... i'm sending it to you!!!
I'd think it'd be more, considering the nice throttles will be $1000 alone... gauges...$1500? plus all the install.
