I have a 20.5 Campbell day cruiser with an Olds 455 and Berkeley jet. Found the build from the ID # in the Campbell owners archives. So it is original. No modifications. I was just wondering if anyone had any information on these boats? All of the Campbells that I have seen are all V-drives any one else out there with a Campbell jet? Thanks for any help, also it’s in good shape so just trying to figure out if i should just run it or restore it?

It is very rare to have a jet or outboard on a Campbell, but there are a few. Since they were all custom builds an owner could have what ever he wanted.

not sure how often they update, but you could get a lot of info from here.

My cousin had a 20 jet for a while, he really liked it. They ride kind of like big heavy flat bottoms. There isn’t much more of a classic looking design out there though.
