A few hunks of veneer on the trunk and hood and roof and you've got a vintage V8... or just add a few bodyside decals from a Grand Cherokee to a V8 and cure all those problems Roger ;)

Now I'm confused.  Are we supposed to help you find a low-mileage
black-on-black V8, or an antique wooden speed boat? :)

If I had a hankerin' for a wooden boat (and I do [1]) and didn't
want the expense of feeding V8 engines, I'd go with a 30' or so
sloop, and equip it with roller furlings and motorized anchors
so I could have push-button sailing.

[1] My hankerin' is for little wooden boats. I built a strip canoe,
and I'd love to build a stitch-and-glue kayak.  And if someone put
a Beetlecat in my... slip? (heck, I don't even have a driveway to
put it in, so yeah, I'll keep the fantasy going with owning a slip),
I'd be at peace with the world.
