1957 GLASTRON SURF-FLITE (Uber Rare) 25 Made 35 HP Johnson Make Offer - $1200 (Irving)

FINS! MAKE OFFER - The Glastron was the very first Fiberglass Boat ever made and the first 24 prototypes were started in 1956. This Boat is 100% original and 100% complete. The engine will run but does need a little repair on part of the wiring harness which is a very easy repair. I believe this boat is one of the original 25 prototypes that were originally built in Arlington Texas and I live 15 miles from there. This Boat has been stored in a barn since 1971 and is very good original condition. You will never find another one like it in the world. I never received the Title so it will have to be registered and I have all of the paperwork needed.

There were only two models for 1957. They were the Fireflite and the Surflite which was a basic fishing/utility version of the Fireflite. Please see the History section for info. on the early Glastrons.

I've learned a few tidbits about why some '57 Glastrons have the
metal sidespears and some don't and why some have the metal emblems and some have mylar stickers.
The metal emblems weren't ready when the first '57s were produced and the mylar stickers were used until the metal emblems were ready. The metal sidespears were dropped later in the production run to keep costs down.

Glastron produced 25 boats in 1956, all of which were '57 model Fireflites and Surflites. Therefore, any '57 model would be a low production number and judging by the registry listings if you find a '57 you'll be lucky!

A lot late here but thanks to a few regulars on here; Shawn, Jim, Joe, Deets, Jess and Kailey for helping get the hull flipped back over and on the trailer. It took me a few more weeks to feel the urge to scramble to get the top side in place before the first snow storm.  There were flurries as we were fighting to get it all lined back up. A quick make shift teepee and an old tarp tied down to the trailer and voila, I bought a few more weeks to finish up a few projects in the garage before it is filled with the 23.

16' Glastron Carlson With 120 Evinrude, E-Z-Loader Trailer - $1650 (Issaquah)

Hi! Wow! Have an extra Glastron/Carlson 16 CVX with an Evinrude 120 VRO, power tilt and trim, sitting on an E-Z-Loader galvanized trailer. Hull is solid, floor and transom very solid, motor has near perfect compression. Hasn't been run for a few years so a bit of a fun winter project cleaning out old gas, changing oil, mounting seats, etc. Have a new impeller for the water pump. I have the twin to this boat with a 115hp motor- hits almost 60 mph. Always an attention getter and the most fun you can have on the water (for this kind of money) with family and friends! Clear titles for both the boat and trailer. Worth $3,500 when you get it going in the spring. Best to call or text.

Last March I got a couple motors......the big Yamaha made its way to my Rat Rod project. The hull came from Colorado, some structural work and a couple seats, modern power and just like that.............the Rat was on the water. Thought about a repaint or clear over patina but thinking I like it as is?  (and its a lot less work)
