1960 Custom Johnson Brothers Sportsman

I think this is one of the first center consoles made. Here is a classic Johnson Brothers sportsman built in New Jersey back in 1960. It is powered by a pair of Chrysler Crowns...6 cylinder 125 hp inboards. They run well and the owner is including several new and used "spares". He has just replaced the carburetors, and the fuel pumps...and done a proper tune up. As you will see in the listing, it has had regular maintenance and sports a fresh coat of paint. The interior was just varnished as well. She has beautiful teak decks and cockpit...and a stunning varnished transom. It has good electronics and features a marine head.
