Are DuraCraft boats collectible?

I'm looking for a vintage motorboat (from the '50s through mid-'60s). I found this one in the mid 3K range but the motor doesn't run.

I've looked at some other runabouts of this era, but thought this was a decent price but not sure it's worth putting money into?

Best Answer:

Bryan: Only to the point of a welded aluminum boat, meaning no rivets to leak. Not too difficult to find a used outboard, or a least get that one checked out first !
