Home Gallery 1973 Hallett Flatbottom
Classic California v-drive 'ski boat' powered by a 468 ci Chevy, Casale in/out (no neutral or reverse) 18% overdriven gears. A real pig when we bought it, now it looks a little better. Driven by the quickest Realtor in East Texas.

Bought this on eBay as a 20th Anniversary present for my wife. Something 'she' had always wanted? Then named Ludicrous, stern carried the warning 'Ain't No Prom Queen'. She certainly wasn't.

Butt (burning) Ugly#phocagallerypiclens 203-phocagallerypiclenscode-realtyquick-1973-halle-bbd8/IMG_0182.JPG
Butt (burning) Ugly
The nasty black paint job and black seats made it almost impossible to use if the sun was out, which is kinda when you want to use it.

First Makeover#phocagallerypiclens 203-phocagallerypiclenscode-realtyquick-1973-halle-bbd8/73Hallett1.jpg
First Makeover
We painted it white to cool things off. Used a single stage polyurethane. Soon found that the old paint held moisture that blistered the new paint. Back to the shop.

Took it back to Anderson Bros. Paint & Body in Huntsville, Texas, and had it sanded all the way down to the original retro gelcoat. Looks like somebody hit something pretty hard on the left side. Yes, that's a '57 Fuelie in the background.

The 468 ci Chevy has two 600 cfm Holleys on a high-rise Weiand manifold, Mallory breakerless electronic distributor, Accel super coil and Bassett headers. Still needs a cam and head work to really make her fly.
