View Large Images ? ? Description Built by Ditchburn Boats of Lake Muskoka, Ontario, the 'Malolo' (Flying Fish in Hawaiian), was originally custom built for Casper Erholm of Lake Whatcom, WA in 1927. Ditchburn Boats were known as the Rolls Royce of boats at the time and were considered to be one of the premier speed boat and yacht builders in the world. They also built racing boats, twice winning the Gold Cup and the Harmsworth Trophy once. This fabulous example is thought to be one of only about two-dozen remaining worldwide, with the majority being restored and residing in eastern Canada. Don't miss this opportunity at adding this incredible, extremely rare and highly desired Ditchburn wooden speed boat to your collection. The Malolo was referred to as a 'Gentleman's Racer'. It was exceptionally fast for its day, going 28 miles per hour. It is powered by a Grey Marine four-90 Fireball racing engine and has Dual Carburettors and High Compression. It had to run on aviation fuel at that time. The Malolo's original owner, Casper Erholm, was the son of Charles Erholm, the 'Finnish Laundry King of Bellingham', who founded Pacific Steam Laundry in 1889. In 1921, Erholm's son Casper began his apprenticeship in the family business. One can only imagine the young and entitled playboy cruising in what may have been Lake Whatcom's fastest boat. The Malolo plied the waters of Lake Whatcom from 1927 to 1959, when it suffered hull damage from hitting a dead head. It went into storage and stayed there until 2005, when its stewardship was passed to the passionate master-crafters at Glen Cove Boatworks. The restoration was undertaken by craftsmen Richard Montag, Tom Walton and Terry Buzzard, along with assistance and advice from many others, including historians from the Lake Whatcom Motor Boat Club. With an eye toward keeping this very special and rare watercraft as near to original as possible, the team painstakingly restored 'Malolo'. The result is an absolutely stunning piece of American boat building history that is sure to impress even the snobbiest boaters. The engine refurbishment was entrusted to the legendary Hy Twiford. Hy starting working with his dad at the Cleveland Yacht Club in the family boat repair business, Twiford Marine Services. He had an innate ability to fix anything, especially if it had to do with boats or boat engines. Jim Rowland of Jim's Upholstery hand-crafted the leather seats, Clawson Instruments expertly refurbished the gauges, the electrical system was restored by Ken Benthien. Larry Oliverson masterfully applied the graphics. The silver highlights are actually Palladium leaf, which is about 5-times more expensive than Gold leaf. Ditchburn Boats is the popular name for a manufacturer of wooden pleasure craft launches and racing boats located in Gravenhurst, Ontario, on Lake Muskoka. At one time the company was the largest boat manufacturer in the lake region. Ditchburn operated from 1871 until approximately the 1930s building wooden rowboats and canoes early in its history, and later gasoline-powered launches. Ditchburn is particularly known for producing high-quality mahogany launches which have become highly prized by collectors in recent years.

This 1971 K5 Blazer started out as a four wheel drive and spent it's life in Colorado Springs. The blazer has been parked in a dry area since 1997 due to engine noise. We found this incredible clean K5 by accident and brought it back to Mansfield, Ohio and changed it up. My whole mindset was to build a practical everyday driver with all the modern necessities. This truck runs and drives like a new one while retaining the old truck look and characteristics. I put a little over 10,000 miles on it this truck this summer and 6,000 of them included a round trip to Mount Rushmore, Washington State, up Pikes Peak to Charlotte, NC for the Goodguys Show! I would not be afraid to drive this truck anywhere and I encourage the buyer to fly in and drive this truck home! NOTE: There is way over $39,000 in parts alone. I will not give this truck away - I don't need the money! This truck is listed with the intentions of selling this truck to someone that knows and understands the caliber of a pro-built vehicle. This is not your clunky, lowered on stock suspension with cut coils kind of truck. Special attention was paid to the placement of the front cross member to insure wheel alignment in front fender. Body: This Blazer was incredibly clean! I included one before picture (#14) and can send other by request. I raised the rear wheel wells 3.5 inches and kicked up the floor under the back seat to fit the frame C-notch 85% of the paint is how we brought the truck back from Colorado (original paint), the other 15% is from touch up after the modifications ... "Amazing what a Buffer can do!" There are little imperfections, like chips, scratches, and rub thru marks if you look close! Suspension: Chassis started with original rails, sand blasted, jigged, boxing and cross members added to strategic areas, painted No Limit Front & Rear Suspension, independent front, 4 link & panhard rear, w/ RideTech adjustable coil overs 5.5in. C-notch in rear RideTech "Helper Bag" kit so you can pull a trailer New 9in. w/ 31 spine Moser axles Wilwood 6 piston front brakes Wilwood 4 piston rear brakes Motor: New Blue Print crate engine 355 Dyno sheet reads 420HP/418ft.lbs. Quick fuel carb, Edelbrock intake, Msd pro billit ignition Pro-built 700R4 w/mild shift kit automatic transmission Gennie shifter, made to look like original 4 speed Wheels & Tires: Billet Specialities - Bonneville G Wheels Front 19 x 8 Rear 20 x 10 BF Goodrich G Force Sport Comp 2 Front 225/40ZR19 Rear 275/40ZR20 Interior: Front Seats '69 Camaro - re-upholstered w/ '67 Camaro upholstery design (black w/ white stripe) Rear Bench - custom upholstered to match New Carpet - (black) Modified original console w/ cup holders Full Alpine sound system Miscellaneous: CPP Brake booster and proportioning valve assembly Trailer brake unit under dash All new glass & weather stripping All new bumpers & grille New lights & lens' (brakes, markers etc.) Full stainless exhaust system w/ magnaflow mufflers ceramic coated flat black New aluminum radiator Please Call Henry, owner & operator of Steadfast Mfg., Mansfield, Ohio 44906 USA with any questions on this truck 419-526-3132 shop or cell 419-632-3315
