    One of the rarest Chris Craft Racing Runabouts in the world, ‘Miss Arrowhead’ is famous as a “thrill ride” boat in the 1940s and 1950s on Lake Arrowhead, California and Big Bear Lake, where she was known as ‘Step In Again III’. The fastest and largest model in the highly collectible ‘Barrelback” series of Chris Craft runabouts, it is the only remaining example of the two that were built in 1940 and carries all the trademark features unique to the line including a Birdseye maple dash, Emerald green leather upholstery, custom Blue-on-Beige instrumentation, twin Ivalite spotlights and a siren. The most distinguishing feature, of course, is its superbly engineered Chris Craft A-120-A racing engine, an 845 cubic inch, 375-horsepower V-8 behemoth, of which only three remain in existence today. With an advertised speed of 50-52 mph, ‘Miss Arrowhead’ was the top of the 1940 Chris Craft line, and at $6,290, the most expensive as well; today, it is the last remaining example. ‘Miss Arrowhead’ was comprehensively restored in 2007, including all new planking with WEST epoxy construction. The engine was completely rebuilt, with concealed modern carburetors and ignition for ease of operation and maintenance; spare and replacement parts are available. The cockpit and seating areas have been reupholstered in the original color and style using leather reproduced by the original supplier. The result is a show-stopping jewel, an all-time classic Chris Craft that can literally be described as the only one of its kind. HIGHLIGHTS - A one-of-a-kind and rare Chris-Craft runabouts.
