I have a one of a kind boat built from a 1928 star car.

I have a boat that a gentle man built in 1928 from a star car. I'm not sure what model exactly. I believe everything but the body and tires were used. It has the original motor and transmission both seats and steering wheel. Looks very similar to a Chris craft. The man built it for his daughter, Lily, graduation in 1928 in myrtle creek Oregon I believe. I'm trying to get information on it and since it's one of a kind that's very hard to do. I know it has no value as a car as it's a boat now. Does anyone know how to find out what model star car was used and maybe how to value it? We are the second owners. It was bought in 1997 from lily when she was 80. Any information would be great. I have pics but not sure how to post them here. Thanks in advance. Can't wait to hear what you've got to say.

As far as model Star we might guess if we had the engine info like, if a W4 or W5 engine shown on the casting info, date of casting m / d / yr, engine serial.

Pictures would be nice. I can tell from the frame details what the year would be. Also, I'm curious to see how the frame was incorporated into a boat!
