TOPIC: 1960 LONE STAR CRUISELINER w/120 MERCRUISER??

1960 LONE STAR CRUISELINER w/120 MERCRUISER?? 2 months 13 hours ago #143099

Friends,

Just this morning I found this '60 I/O LONE STAR CRUISELINER on a nice tandem trailer & wonder IF anyone has either a factory brochure and/or GOOD quality photos of what the 23 FOOT "tin" cabin-cruiser looked like when new.
(I would like to restore the boat to "factory".)

Everything seems to be there but it is quite "rundown looking".

In the event that any of our members have a brochure, spec sheet and/or good photos, PLEASE respond soon. I would like to do a large portion of this "moderately large" restoration project while I am on "furlough" from my regular job.

Also, do any of our great members have an idea of how many CRUISELINERS were built by LONE STAR??
(Personally, I have NOT even seen a CRUISELINER on/off the water in at least 25 years, so there must be FEW left of whatever the total built was.)

THANKS, Tex
San Antonio, TX

Doug,

YES, I did. That was the FIRST place that I tried. = ALL that I found in the LONE STAR area of the Library were OUTBOARD boats.
NOT an Inboard/Outboard in sight.
Nonetheless, THANKS for the response.

yours, tex

The 1st MerCruisers came out in 1962 as 1963 models. And it was a 110hp, they didn't introduce the 120 until 1964 model year.
Bottom line, you'll be looking a long time for an I/O brochure.

When I was in New Braunfels, I had looked up the Lone Star Boat collectors group - Austin based I think, and it might have been a website and a FB group - they might be able to help. I previously had a 16' Skipper bought near Canyon Lake.
Do you have any photos of said boat?
