Something you'll not see very often...

Two Glastron V-174s side by side.

The owner Mike M. plans to make one of them into a Batboat.

Congratulations, Mike!

edit: I spoke too soon. Here are two more in Logansport, IN. One of them will be a Batboat replica, too.

Batboat replicas seem to have just become the "in" thing to do recently.

The V-174s are getting hard to find. The hulls of the sterndrive models made in 1966, 1967 and 1968 are from the same molds.

The original TV Batboat was based on a 1966 Crestflite Stern Drive V-174 Super Sport made by the Glastron Corporation out of Texas.
