This is a fully restored 1959 Larson Thunderhawk Jr with a fully restored 1960 Evinrude 75hp Outboard motor. Restoration began with a complete fiberglass restoration to make the boat like it was when it came off the assembly line in Little Falls, Minnesota in 1959. A few highlights include a new windshield fabricated to exact original specs, new custom upholstery, all new wiring with each electrical function fused for safety, new steering system, new gunnel rub rail, and much more. Great attention was given to making the restoration as near to authentic as possible. Therefore, the last phases of the restoration was done by Classic Larson restoration expert John Monahan of Little Falls, Minnesota and the results are stunning. An original Larson Thunderhawk Jr cover is included (excellent condition) with updated straps is included.
