Rub rail has to go in the same pile as the diamond plate dash. Other than that, has always been one of my favorites as a kid. Beyond there now but for the price, you cant build it.

Who's boat is this? I still have both of my Champs, one is a 1966 the other a 1967. Love the history of only 5 made per year. The 66' is my daily driver, lol and a whole lot of fun. The 67' is a project boat still in all original condition.
Curious as to if the two seats was a modification or came that way because I have never seen a 68'. Also never seen a windshield either on any champion, but I do like the way they look without them and with them too.
