For sale is a 1964 glastron. It's condition is reflected in the pictures. The interior will need replacement. There is a hole in the deck which to me reflects the overall condition of the deck. The hull is in good shape for its age, there is some cracking on top and some issues on the driver side that may/will require attention. The motor is a 90 horsepower super seahorse in unknown condition but we understand it is semi rare. Overall the boat needs a restoration but it is a good candidate for one.

Trailer is in good condition I recommend New tires before traveling any large distance. Paperwork wise. I have the title, I have it's last registration, I have the trailer tag, I have the keys I even have the original owners manual with owners notes. However the title was signed by a previous purchaser who is not myself. I have his phone number and last known address, but it may be accurate or it may not. That being said. I'll provide a bill of sale for the boat and all the documents I posses. I can't say how easy or difficult it will be to get the paperwork in order, I suppose that will depend on your states laws.

First thing, it may be worth $500 or maybe $3000 to the eight buyer, there are some who adore the vintage craft.  Overall it looks like a fair restoration project.  The bad part that will send all but a few walking is all the hair on the paperwork.  So you have a title signed by the named owner on the title(TN), and then signed by the buyer, which is not you?  That is a uphill battle at any state DMV.     Most folks simply won't deal with that hassle, so in the end, it may sell low($300) as a parts boat, not a resto.    Want more money, you may need to get title in your name, then sell for more.  It's like the old saying, how much is your time worth?

Thanks for adding the pics for me hyper I appreciate it, and I completely understand how the chain of ownership could be a pickle depending on state law, thatís why I tried to be completely up front with everything as best as possible.  Here in Illinois as I understand it boats under 20 ft donít need a title to get a sticker but Iím not 💯 on that.  It may be better to just say lost title Iím honestly not sure,

Maybe call who ever handles reg. or title in your state and ask them some questions.
Might be easy to fix.

Well, I think that boat is super cool.  Has the look of an Aristocraft with the sliding roof and a place to get out of the weather.
