Welcome to the forum elaniii !

If your boat still has the data plate to the lower left of steering wheel, the fourth number from left will be year built.

Hi,
I have recently purchased a GC 537 Metric Series with a Mercrusier 485 and Alpha 1 leg.
It has had a paint job during its 41 years on this planet and lost a few of its decals but all in all, a great boat, I have seen 48mph on the clock but who knows how accruate that is. Working to bring it back to original (if that is even possible).
Any one with info, particualrly any one who worked in the Anaheim factory in 1980/81, if you have any history on these boats I would love to hear from you.

Welcome to the forum JAA_AUS !

Cool boat !
I think they (C537) were only made for two years .. 1981 & 1982.
Look on right side of stern under rub rail for "HIN" the last four digits are year and month built.
I asked John Carlson why the Metric series only lasted for a short time, he wasn't sure but thought it was politics among management.

Good evening from North Carolina, I recently bought a 1974 Glastron CV 16, it needs a complete restoration. I would like to ask for resources for parts, replacement decals, stringer specifications, everything bow to stern. The windshield frame is good. The rub rail is great. I plan on separating the top from the bottom, removing fuel tank. I could go on. Please provide resources and contacts for advice. I?m excited to begin.
