A guy here is trying to sell a glastron boat, Says it is a flat bottom, has a 396 bbc, turbo 400 trans, cassel v-drive, and says it will do 80 or so on water. says the top of hull around the bow is some kind of fabric or so, not fiberglass top, but says the bottom is fiberglass. says it is a 1968. Is this true, I wont be able to see the boat for another week. I looked at all the models i can find from 1968 and none of them are flat bottoms or v-drive. not even shown a jet model.

i know most of there boats were family fish and ski boats, but i have been told and seen pics of some custom boats they did with double out boards, jets, and what not that some guys ran in ski racing.... it is possible they made a v drive

Awsome, I would love some pictures. I am curious to how the boat looks. is it a sleek style like some of these other v-drives. He is asking 1800 for it but wont be back in town till next week sometime.

Did you ever go look at that Glastron? What kind of condition is it in? I can't seem to find anything on a V-Drive Glastron in 1968

There were some Glastron v-drive boats running endurance races in the
'60s. The hull thickness may be a question.
