Crestliner Catalogs at Minnesota Historical Society

Postby OutBdNut » Wed Jan 11, 2017 10:24 pm

I stumbled across the website below at the Minnesota Historical Society that lists Minnesota boat company catalogs in their archives per the paragraph below. There is more info on the website as to where they are filed, but they are not available online, or at least I couldn't find them. The Historical Society building is near downtown St' Paul if anyone wants to look something up - Note Crestliners from 1956-1979 and Larsons from 1956-1999. These are from a collection a dealer accumulated over the years:
Minnesota companies represented in the collection are Alumacraft (1985-1996), Crestliner (1956-1979, 1992-1998), Larson (1956-1999), Glastron (1996-2000), Forester (1972-1988), Lund Boat Company (1967-1996), Pipestone Mariner Corporation (1970-1972), Weere’s Industries (ca.1970-1972), Silver Line (1970-1973), and Spartan Trailers (1972-1982).

Here's the site I found:
57 Viking14 730 w/aft deck, splashwell, and folding seatbacks
57 Commander 12 Custom Deluxe 550
57 Viking 14 701 (Heavily Modified)
58 Cadillac Rivera (Not a Crestliner, but still cool!)
Dozens of old outboards
