I can't really tell by looking at the tiny pic in your avatar, can you post some larger pics in the Photo Gallery? Looks sort of like a G3 or some variant.

KIM:  WELCOME,  Looks like a clean speedster. . Windshield not a necessity to zip the cove or ski , till you find a small one or cut down.. YES, The pinstripes on deck seem like 66- 72 GLASSPAR - CATALINA (Swimwear co-brand)  G-3 . Rear pic or dash would confirm.  Racing stripe look like a late 60's Mopar car item. ENJOY

KIM: RARE PACKAGE, Slope rear sides, & now Glasspar badges, CATALINA G-3 last of version #2. Your H.I.N. indicates LARson after 72, the last two digits of 77 would suggest 1977, BUT thought 74 the last year.?? .. The 85HP Chrysler looks like a SHORT shaft mid-section , also rare. .Need to watch the COOLING, as water passages were narrow,& can clog.! Maybe a gauge or water pressure meter.?  Looks like new floor ,as this model had Open foam that soaked up water / weight. Again clean rig, small windscreen when locate or bend lexan.

thanks for your feeback... is there any site i can go to look  that tag up?  the tag was pop ribbited onto the back of the boat. Do you suggest that tag didnt go with the baot and it is a 74 or 72 year boat. Yes the foam was in there in bits and peices had it ripped the rest of the way out and put in the wood floor. There was a gas tank in the front of the boat. I also took that out of the front of the boat it was all rusted and put gas cans in back of boat. bend lexan??? where do i get that.... what can i use for weight for the front, sense i took gas can out and the foam out...???? thanks for all your input

K: Pre 1972 if the serial # was not recessed INTO the fiberglass material on the Outside..  Glasspar had a tag site for 59-66 codes.  67 -70 longer #'s not simple.  I have the GLEN-L site bending article I will send.  Try to find Aluminum gas tank for front, Keep one of spare tanks & or Battery up front for weight.  Power trim & tilt on that 85hp.??
