For the 1981 model year .. The CVX16's were changed to the C500 & C512 Metrics.

Not sure if there was running surface changes, but there was some changes to bow.
CVX16 on left  / C500 on right.

There was a one year only change to how seats were made, with a wire frame work.

In 1981 there was the " Extra Affordable "  models .. C500S,  C512S & C537S.

Not sure about differences between the C537 and C537S models.

The C512 had flake and the C512S did not, not sure of any other changes.

The C500S could be the yellow C500 that I have found about 18 of.
All the yellow C500's have CV style seats in pleated yellow vinyl, most have blue carpet and a different style steering wheel.
They don't have a 18 gal. bow mounted fuel tank like the standard C500 had.

1982 was Glastron's 25 th. Anniversary  8)

The cover of the 1982 brochure had a CVX16 .. and one of the brochures list the CVX16 as a CVX16SS.
Only the C500 and C512 were listed in the P.I.G. .. not the CVX16 ?

Maybe a mid year model change ?
I've heard the Metric's didn't sell well and that there was political and intercompany issues.
I have one HIN from a 1982 CVX16 and it was built in Nov.
