This is true. And we only built, if memory serves, 1 or 2 small-block packages with the 300 Tempest/Alpha SS. Lots of regular Alpha 260 MerCruiser packages, and even more with outboards. You know something, I just remembered something...We did rig a few with the MerCruiser "Magnum" 330 h.p. 454 Alpha packages, beginning in '87. Almost forgot. I corrected my above post. These packages all ran exactly 74 M.P.H. & had great acceleration.

Here's a like to all the Anthony pics, Brian is the previous owner.
http://spudsgarage.com/a1.htm

check out http://spudsgarage.com/b1.htm This is the other boat he is fixing up. Take a look at the cat he bought to get the 1500XS, so far has been unable to identify the manufacturer of that hull.

I mostly look either Ebay or www.fiberglassics.com Once in a while if I have nothing to do I go through craigslist but its tough. The Anthony came through a contact on S&F

The Anthony is in great shape, as far as I can tell from the pics. It does need a new floor but my assumption is a complete rebuild so no matter how bad it is I'm ok. I've heard the boat was a hot rod of it's time, also found another owner in WA with 100hp on the back said the boat runs mid 60s though he doesn't have a short shaft motor. I'm hoping with the 125 short shaft and a decent prop it should be into the 70s. If all else fails I'll drop a pair of worked Stingers on the transom, but then it wouldn't be "period correct." I am sticking with the 1250 inline 6 short shaft which is from 1969.

As for the Apache, come on Panther pull the trigger

You mean looks like this?
