***SOLD*** Kurtis 500 Runner Bottom W/ or w/o engine or trade

Boat located in San Jose, CA - Engine included with turn-key price is the 440 Chrysler, not the BBC shown in some pics.

Fully restored Kurtis 500 t-DECK runner bottom drag or lake boat. Painted floors (not to hide anything just for a clean look) , medium lay-up, custom seats, everything powdercoated, polished, or billet. Pearl white paint. All new A/N lines and fittings. Holley billet fuel pump. Menkins V drive with whirl-away, Menkins prop. Clean marine grade wiring, msd ignition. Very low hours since restoration. Currently has a 440 Chrysler built by Daves Engine Machining in Newark with raised runner aluminum heads professionally ported with flow sheet. Manley Valves, Ti retainers, Manley Nextek springs. Custom comp solid roller cam , blueprinted, zero decked, geometry properly set up, custom smith bros. pushrods, Hughes shaft rockers. CC'd TRUE 12.5:1 compression (runs great on 100 octane). These heads run so cool with lake water through them you might be able to pull a few degrees of timing and get away with 91 octane, but It's really designed to be ran on 100 octane with current tune up. Both tanks full of ERC 100 fuel (20 gallons) JE Pistons, DRCI 660 center squirt carbs, ported tunnel ram. Estimated around 700hp. If you aren't into the Mopar I have some parts for BBC conversion (mounts and bell housing). I also have a Panella 358" chevy pro stock truck engine I could include instead of the 440 for a little more cash. 904hp 11* heads, all top shelf parts. Would make a great comp eliminator engine also. Was ran by Greg Stanfield in comp eliminator before he moved up to pro stock.

I'll sell it turn key for $10000 or $5000 less engine. Will sell engine separate for $7000 carbs to pan turn key if you have a boat, hot rod or drag car to stuff it in- come here it run! Engine is almost brand new, has MAYBE 10 hours of total running time on the lake and 15 or so passes on it.

I'll entertain reasonable offers on any of this stuff, cash talks and although I'm not in a huge rush to sell I'm ready to deal (well the wife says I am). Call 510-979-9211 between 8am and 5:30pm for more info or send an email to bo (at) bo-port.com. These are the only pics I have, if you search on here for this boat you can probably find more shots and better details of the build. If no answer please call back as my machine gets full at my shop. Boat is located near automall parkway between 680 and 880 in Fremont . I know some of you that are in the bay area have seen this boat around before and can vouch for it, no BS here- boat is solid, well taken care of and near immaculate.

Holley billet fuel pump. Menkins V drive with whirl-away, Menkins prop. Clean wiring, msd ignition. Very low hours since restoration. Currently has a 440 Chrysler built by Daves Engine Machining in Newark (THE west coast mopar experts) Raised runner aluminum heads professionally ported with flow sheet. Manley Valves, Ti retainers, Manley Nextek springs. Custom comp solid roller cam , blueprinted, zero decked, geometry properly set up, custom smith bros pushrods, Hughes shaft rockers. CC'd TRUE 12.5:1 compression (runs great on 100 octane).

Both tanks full of ERC 100 fuel (20 gallons) JE Pistons, Pro built 660 center squirt carbs, ported tunnel ram. Estimated around 700hp. If you aren't into the Mopar I have all parts for BBC conversion (headers, plates, mounts etc). I also have a Panella 358" chevy pro stock truck engine I could include instead of the 440 for a little more cash. 904hp 11* heads, all top shelf parts. Would make a great comp eliminator engine also. Was ran by Greg Stanfield in comp eliminator before he moved up to pro stock.

I'll sell it turn key for $12000 or $7000 for the boat without the 440 engine or trade for an OPEN BOW Ski Nautique, Mastercraft, Sanger, ,Malibu, Centurion (or similar) wakeboard/ski boat of equal value. I would also consider a partial trade for a 90's and newer open bow wakeboard boat (same brands as listed above) of lesser value plus cash. Will sell engine separate for $7000 carbs to pan turn key if you have a boat, hot rod or drag car to stuff it in- come here it run! Engine is almost brand new, has MAYBE 10 hours of total running time on the lake and 15 or so passes on it.

I could text some pics from my phone if you are interested send me your number via email or call. If no answer please call back as my machine gets full at my shop. Can show anytime after 6pm right off 680. I know some of you that are in the bay area have seen this boat around before and can vouch for it, no BS here- boat is solid and near immaculate.

Price reduced....

^^^THANKS^^^^ :)

OK how about we save your time and my time here, this is my bottom dollar or I'll hang onto it for another season: $6000 less engine or $10,000 turn key.

Here is an older ad from the previous owner that has some more pictures and better details: http://www.performanceboats.com/boats-sale/77695-78-kurtis-flat-complete-update.html

You will not find a cleaner runner bottom for that price.
