Default 1979 39 sutphen w/510's "bad frog"

Anyone know anything about a 1979 sutphen 39 ft boat supposedly from the chicago area? Its green with 3 man race bolsters,510 bbc's with dual 4bbl's,stellings big tubes,#4's on boxes. It was supposed to have been ran from 79 to 81 then in storage for years then re-vamped. A friend who repairs boats is buying it ,he is trying to get me interested but its not really what I'm looking for. It has the name "bad frog" down the side of it and of course he claims it should run 100 mph. Must have been a race boat at one time,Smitty

Check the Sutphen forum there is a thread on it and it shows it in the race days. Sweet ride....I think I would rip off that windshield though. I spoke with the guy who is selling it for his friend. He was very knowledgable on the boat and answered all my questions including the ones on the two speed trannies.

That was the 1st 39 Sutphen race boat ever built.
