    Barrelback?

    Not throwing off on the boat or the ad here, but just for clarification, weren't the '68 boats barrelbacks?

    1968 was a transition year. This boat (hull 232 or 235 - I forget) was advertised here a little over a year ago and is probably one of the first non barrel backs.

    Looks like a nice, original boat. And it has that groovy windshield!

    Cool

    My 18 was a 1968 #250 and was identical to that one w / out the scoop.

    nice looking example of an early 18 round bottom 2+3 that was a very popular color then the seats are the "number 5" option which wear flared out for a little more comfort over the stand tight buckets. most early classics had the dark contrasting interior which usually matched the stripe the boat is so cool the seats can't get that hot, really nothing a well placed towel can't fix.

    i would love an engine shot the scoop has me, is it just show or could the 302 have a real high rise manifold on it? the boat shows the lower 289 302 exhaust exits so that has me wondering
    nice boat should make someone happy

    pretty high flame arrestor also looks like a high intake as well that would explain the scoop, 351w ???????????????? the intake looks wide

    Ask the guy to post a picture of the top of the distributor or ask him what the firing order is - That's the easiest way to distinguish between a 351W and older 302 (anything pre-1982). I can't quite follow the spark plug wires in the photo well enough to determine what the firing order is but from the looks of the wires going Driver-Passenger-Driver-Driver it's probably a 302.

    351W and 1982+ 302 = 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8
    Old 302 = 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8

    All pre-1982 260/289/302 engines whether they were labelled HO, Hi-Po, etc or not, had the old 302 firing order. All 302 engines after 1982 had the 351W firing order.

    Don't 302s have the horizontal water outlet and 351 have the vertical? Looks like a 302 to me.
