Title: 1980's I.C. RACE BOAT I THINK ADVICE ON TYPE NEEDED
Post by: FLAT-TOP-FLYER on April 03, 2014, 10:06:18 PM
Hi All,
Bought this the other day, powered by a K & B Torpedo 40 (rear carb) hoping someone can tell me what it is. Its in fair condition has had a repair to the bow, hoping to restore to its former glory, but sadly not with the K & B lacks compression.
Thanks in advance
Mike
