Hi.  I'm a new member from Minnesota.  My boat is a 1982 Glastron Carlson CVX16.  I am the original owner, and the boat is all original.  Attached are some photos.  Even though the one photo appears to have a tree growing out of the middle of my boat the tree is really behind the boat.

WOW !
Very Nice !
Oh Ya … Welcome to the forum 1982CVX16 ..

I think the steering wheel is wrong though …
Other then that looks like it rolled out of factory !
1982 CVX16 is not listed in one of there brochures or P.I.G.'s .. But is in another brochure, maybe late 1982 build ?
Would you be willing to share serial number with us ?

No kidding! Beautiful boat! One of the nicest CVX16's I've seen! 1982 was a very interesting year for the CVX16. According to the brochure it's a "SS-CVX-16". Every other year from 77-88 it was a CVX16. Well, apparently the boat didn't even exist in 1981 though. I always wondered if the emblem on the boat changed that year as well but according your boat it did not. Thanks a lot for sharing pictures of your boat and hope to meet you on the water some day. Like Gregg said, if you would be willing to supply us with the HIN that would be very helpful as well.

My 1980 CVX-16 SS had a bow sticker/emblem that indicated the model.  I had always known or believed the SS was due to the IO configuration.  My other cvx-16, outboard, was a deluxe version according to the title.  So the ads left me a bit confused.  Great looking 16, very well preserved.

Might have had some old CVX16SS stickers left from pre 1979 CVX's ?
Dosen't look like the one pictured in brochure has a bow sticker ?
Wondering if his steering wheel is original also ?

Thanks for all the replies and information.  As far as I know the steering wheel is what came with the boat back in 1982.  I've been looking for pictures from back then to verify this.   But I have never had the steering wheel changed.  It has always looked like that.  If you look closely there is "wood" trim in the middle of the steering wheel which matches the "wood" trim around the inside of the boat. 

I'm a little reluctant to post the whole serial number but the first three characters are GCV and the last four are M82C.  I have been told that those last four characters indicate a 1982 boat.  Interesting when I went out to get the serial number I discovered that one digit in the original sales receipt and the MN registration had been incorrect since the boat was new, so I called the MN DNR to get that fixed. 

The boat has a sticker on the bow with SS, so I will take pictures and add them here, and probably take a few more pictures as well.  Any special requests for pictures? 

The boat lives indoors for most of the time, which is why it is in such good shape.  The trailer is up on blocks for the winter. 

It usually gets comments whenever I take it out.

If you look at bottom picture I posted above, that is the steering wheel that was used from that time frame.
I'll try to find a better picture of one.
Not saying your wrong or anything, just interesting ..We learn new stuff all the time about G/C boats ..

How to read your "Hull identification number".
http://forum.cgoamn.com/index.php?topic=5964.0

EDITED … Your would have been built in October 1981. EDITED
Sorry for the confusion ..

Seem like there are more boats with incorrect SN's or build dates on titles then there are one's that are correct !
As far as we know the number you didn't give is your hulls number, we think .. LOL
Understand not wanting to post it on internet ..

This link is to most of or boats ... "Glastron / Carlson serial numbers"
 http://forum.cgoamn.com/index.php?topic=8012.msg117978#msg117978

Your CVX should also have a plate on throttle board, does it look like one pictured below ?
"Glastron/Carlson  ..  Anaheim, California"

Of course we would love to see more pictures of your CVX !

Awesome!

In original condition, and original owner . . . that is a rare thing.  For most of us by the time our machines come to us they have been passed around a bit.  And then members of this group bring them back to life repairing the neglect of others.  Your the rare original owner that cared for the machine and obviously had a lot of pride.

Looks like a great family heirloom you have created in one generation.

Welcome.

Great looking 1982 CVX-16. I wish that I aged that well over the last 37 years.

 The M82C suffix on your hull number means that it is a 1982 model year, built in Oct 1981.

True for every year except for 1982!

Here are some photos of the steering wheel.  This is as it came with the boat in May 1982.  I have been looking through my old photos of the boat but haven't found one yet of the steering wheel.  Mostly the photos are of the outside of the boat. 

When I look at the 1977 Glastron brochure the GT-150 seems to have a steering wheel which looks similar to my boat's.  But the photo in the brochure is not very clear. 

Is there some reason the dealer would have changed out a steering wheel on a new boat?  That seems unlikely to me. 

Also, note that the wood grained trim on the steering wheel seems to match the wood grained trim on the dashboard and the interior sides of the boat. 

Would there be anyone still at Glastron who would have information about the steering wheel?

And more photos of the boat. 

I had originally intended to buy a Crestliner Crusader, but the two Crestliners had been sold at a boat show.  So I looked at two Glastrons.  I think one was blue which I liked but it was not a Glastron Carlson.  I really liked the look of the Glastron Carlson CVX 16, and the metal flake paint was pretty stunning.  So that is what I bought. 

I need to scan some old photos of the boat shortly after purchase and post them up here.  A couple of them are of the boat christening ceremony.  Others are of the boat out on the water.

Looking thru brochures, there were models in 1977 to 1980 with that wheel.

Steering wheel looks great.  Even if it was not original I’d keep it, matches perfectly.  It very well could have been changed out at the factory.  In those days they were making so many boats per day with a bunch of models and lengths I’m sure they had multiple part sources for various items.

The boat looks awesome just the way it is, don’t change a thing. And metle flake orange (Apricot) is kind of my thing so the more pictures the better.  😀
