High rez COLOR photo from the '67 Glastron Boats catalog.

As we all know, back in 1966 the Glastron Boat Company was contracted to build a Batboat for the movie and TV show.

Before shipping to the studio they shot a series of photos. Two of the several consistent characteristics of these are the bow tie steering wheel and what I call the "long underwear" Batman behind the wheel.

After 5 or 6 years, I finally have a scanner again and am sharing my backlog of stuff for the first time. Smiley

This is the only COLOR photo from Glastron I've found to date, as discovered on the second page of a '67 Glastron boat catalog I bought off of eBay.

Original image is 1 1/2 by 3 3/4 inch.

Scanned at 600 dpi on a Canon 5600F, descreened and NOT sharpened, it is the best image I can get off the page.

The file uploaded here --> is TIF format and size is over 6 MB.

Here is a smaller sized JPG.
