When it comes to vintage parts, knowing what you need is one thing. Finding what you need is another. We are therefore relentless in our search for original parts and materials.
We encounter a wide variety of engines in our business, spanning a broad time frame. From World War One surplus-vintage Hall-Scott and Liberty engines, to Chris-Craft six cylinder engines, to fifties and sixties Chrysler Hemis and Chris-Craft 430 Lincolns, we’ve developed a large group of suppliers and can find the appropriate parts (if they exist!) If they don’t exist, we have an equally large number of skilled fabricators who can recreate everything from Gar Wood Liberty V-12 transmission parts to brackets to accommodate a modern alternator.
Original instrumentation is a must in a vintage boat, even if modern power has been installed. We have a number of great suppliers who are expert at restoration, and we have a great deal of experience in matching those instruments to whatever engine inputs are available.
We regularly have leather custom-dyed to match original colors and patterns from the twenties and thirties. We have innumerable sources for vinyl materials and production processes to match almost any interior. We also have skilled artisans who can re-create hand tied, cotton covered coil spring seat bases, horsehair seat backs, and biscuit stitched kapok cushions, right down to original seat cushion Coast Guard labels from the thirties and forties.
In short, we can either locate or fabricate any part you need. To inquire about a specific part, click here.
Rebuilding this WWI era Liberty V-12 transmission required the fabrication of multiple new parts as most spares were scrapped during WWII metal drives.
