1963 Crestliner Del Rio Deluxe v-hull, with a 1965 Johnson 75hp V4 2 stroke Autoshift

1 owner before me, bought it new (repowered with the 75hp)Work done : Rebuilt the carb with factory gaskets, cleaned up amazing, works perfectly. Only thing that doesn't work is the auto-choke solenoid. Switch fires it, solenoid just clicks. Easily manually choked off the plates, works and the thermocoil pulls the choke back (or the throttle) so all that works 90%. Engine wiring was re-done without a new plug (was going to be temporary) because the wiring was rather swollen and green. New starter solenoid, new plugs, new(er) coil, new points and condensor, timing adjusted, all cylinders at 130psi cold, cylinder walls still show cross hatch, water pump impeller and seals brand new, lower unit oil flushed (really flushed) and changed. Hull needs some gel coat work and has a lot of knicks and what not, none leak and amazingly no delam. Holds water out (and in). Floors were replaced and honestly, they work but they didn't go well on execution. But they hold 5 200lbs people so, they work. Seats were what came with it, they're gross, but they are ... what they are. Have the original rear seats, 2 biminie frames, and an INSANE amount of information for restoring this boat.
