This is the third one I have seen ... Are they original from Glastron / Carlson ?

Too many to not be factory IMO. But would only be able to run as a 2 seater since it looks like the engine cover pretty much blocks half of the rear seats.

First one in thread (Plum with white interior) is listed as 351 ci motor.
Third one has no info on motor.
Second one shows motor, I don't know my V8 motors, any guess on what it is ?
Chevy, Ford or Olds ?

The second one should be a ford, front distributor, probably 351 or 302.

I noticed on two of them the jet bowls are extended out from the hull with the clean out that should be right behind the motor on the outside of the hull. So, I would presume the water pickup is at the very rear of the hull right before the transom.

While the third one has the standard berkeley jet transom mount.

Interesting ...
Didn't notice jet placement.
So it's a small block Ford motor.

I can't say for sure on small block or big block. I haven't work on a ford engine in years. but I do know that ford put their distributors at the front of the engine.

 Thatís the boat that got me hooked on glastron.. the lake I grew up on in northern MN , our neighbor had one with a jet. And It was a pulling machine. Four of us,Ēkids at the timeĒ all day long, it was a blast. Iíve only seen one since than so I think they are pretty rare and would get one, if only for the memories.  :D
