That is not a bad looking extended hardtop.  Many of the ones I see with
after-market extended hardtops don't look right or the line of the top runs
on an awkward angle.  

I now have my 1963, 34ft. Connie up for sale with a broker in Ontario "Harris & Ellis" [] should be on yachtworld too.   My wife and I hope to find a wood 36ft. Grand Banks Trawler that we can use to cruise beyond the Great Lakes and perhaps take south in a few years.   Chris Craft 283's are a good engine as long as prior owners have not logged too many hours running over 3000 RPM.  Simple to rebuild when the time comes too.   If you have Carter carburettors like  mine your fuel burn at 1800 should only be about 4 or 5 gallons per hour which ain't bad.  No doubt you also have the Paragon transmissions with the
2.5:1 reduction and nice 'big-ass' 20" props or something similar.  Have
fun - if there is a wood boat brand worth putting the sweat equity into it
is a Constellation.

Does she still have the bigger six cylinder engines with dual carbs?  Good luck.
