1947 Gar Wood Commodore.My father bought this rare classic boat new in 1947. I have the original purchase order. My dad was the first person to water ski in California and he and his sister were the only known people to ever waterski behind and airplane WITHOUT floats. The boat is named Miss Pam and she was used as a waterskiing tournament boat during the 40s and 50s. The original Chrysler engine was replaced with a suitable Chevrolet V8 at the time of restoration. Most everything on the boat is original except for some instruments and the removal of the bow to stern handrail. 5200 no-soak bottom and painted with Imron. Honduras Mahogany planking. She still sits on the original trailer, which is a classic in its own right with 1930s style wheel covers. I fully restored her for a Tahoe boat show in the 90s, and has been re-varnished several times since. This boat has a documented history from original invoice, many old photos, tournament records, newspaper articles, etc..
