Check with Chris Orphal.  It was either his 35 or his dad's 38 had a drawer refit.  The old bins and plastic slides are probably made of unobtainium.  The drawer replacements were on regular glides and much longer but retained the original face.

Captain  Rob ....... Contact  www.plasteccorp.com  in  Ohio  .  They were the OEM supplier for Chris Craft from back in the day for  drawers & drawer slides  .

Hello all,

My dad's 1966 38 had wood drawers, and my 1968 35 had the plastic drawers.  I never had to replace the plastic (thankfully), but I did replace the original drawer fronts that had been replaced with plywood covered in carpet (don't ask - wasn't me).  Anyway... I don't think you'd be able to find a replacement plastic drawer that old, but I can't imagine that replacing a plastic drawer with a wood one would be terribly difficult.  I wish I had more positive news for you Rob...

I went through this last year on my ‘66 31’ I couldn’t find a new plasic drawr. I ended up building a new wood drawer installing the original mahogany front and some soft close sliders. The only hitch in the project was when I found out the original framing wasn’t sqaure from front to back. 

Rob,

I believe I have a couple of the plastic drawer boxes and other parts left from a drawer replacement project on my 31.

Where are you located?

Thanks for the offer.  I repaired the broken drawer with some flat metal brackets and angle pieces.

that will be a good fix until the plastic cracks under the load and shatters.  I have been there and done that! Just be aware of the hazards. With that said. I have two brand new ones in my shop, I was able some years ago to track down the mfg. and had them shipped to me. Don't remember the name.

Interested? let me know.
