The Chris-Craft Cobra is unquestionably the most famous, recognizable and collectible model ever built. Only 108 Cobras were ever built (52 18-foot models and 56 21-foot models produced) from 1955 and for they are boating icons.
A few Chris-Craft Cobras (17-18 units) topped the engine choices with a powerful 285 horsepower Cadillac Crusader from Detroit car dealer Cal Connell. Hemi engines powered 21 boats. Only 10 of the 55 boats built had Chris-Craft 6-cylinder (158HP) engines in them. Seven boats were shipped new by Chris-Craft without an engine.
