Good point .. Though built in Anahiem they were Glastron / Molinari's not Glastron / Carlson's.

My 16 was a 1980 CVX-16 SS.  I can find a bow picture for reference if you need one for a collection.

if you're only tracking Carlson's...any Glastron-Molinari wouldn't meet your criteria in my view.  The Molinari is an Italian hull imported by Glastron.  Carlson's have no relation to them.

I am guessing mine looks very similar. Not sure though I never installed it.

I debated about the Molinari. Had it in there. Then took it out. Not really a Carlson as it's a Molinari design but I am sure there are certain features like badging that may have made it unique. I added it back in. Would be cool to see in person....if any exist anymore.

1972 Glastron CV16 - $1500 (New hartford CT)
https://hartford.craigslist.org/boa/d/1972-glastron-cv16/6700977230.html

Price reduced... $1500!!
Boat is currently located in New Hartford Ct
Own a piece of James Bond history!!!
1972 Glastron Carlson CV16 with a 1978 Mercury Tower of Power 1150 115 HP outboard.
CV16 is the upgraded larger model from the classic James Bond GT150.
Engine was tuned up with new plugs, and carb floats by the local marina this summer and ran like a top this season! Pulls skiers and tubes great with the 19" stainless prop, change it out and hit 45+ with the 21" aluminum prop.
Brand new white vynl seats, cushions, and interior panels.
Lights, power trim, steering, all engine controls functioning. Good condition galvanized trailer with bearing buddies.
The boat could use new floors and some fiberglass finish work. It would make an excellent winter project for a guy wanting to finally boat like their favorite childhood secret agent!
Additional photos available on request. Boat is currently in Bristol NH at my lake house.

I've always wanted to see a model breakdown for Glastron like you see for cars on Wikipedia. Here is my attempt at it for Carlson. This all based strictly on the brochures. We all know that what really happened may stray from the brochures. Let me know if you see anything that doesn't make sense.

Some day I may attempt to do the same for the Glastron models.

You learn some pretty interesting things as you go through this. How models seem to disappear from the brochures one year then are back the next. Name changes.

1960 likely to be the first year of Carlson boats but no brochures have been found from 1960-1962.

Look at the CVX16. Originally called the CXV16 in 1977, dropped for 1981, revived in 1982 but renamed SS-CVX-16, Then back to CVX16 in 1983, remained that way till 1989 when it became a 16CSS for 2 years, name changed to "16 Carlson" for 1991, then to wrap up it's last year in existence was renamed back to 16CSS in 1992.

CV23 to CVX23 to 23CSS

Corinthian to Conquest

Models only made one year:
CH-16
Charger (probably the rarest Carlson IMO)
CVC18
CV19 Outboard
C-535
33CSS
CSS24

Many thanks to Gregg for keeping an excellent library of brochures and knowing where to look.
