Default Need advise on a vintage Pachanga??

I just found a 1970 Pachanga (well i found it last year but has taken this long to find the owner)... I know a little about the history of Pachanga...built for 3 yrs only 500 ect... This one is in OK shape...It looks like I may need to replace the seats and poss. the floor... The Gelcoat will need some buffing... It has a 350 with a merc. out drive ???... I'm looking for a winter project but this may be bigger than I want or need... I like the lines of the boat and have been told that it sounds great

I'm looking for any advice you guy's have... Is this boat worth restoring ?? Is it too old to restore ?? should I just go and buy a canoe ??

Well the value is only up to you. Kind of a "in the eye of the beholder" kind of thing. Is it worth fixing.... from a financial stand point... probably not. Some people get a LOT of satisfaction out of building/fixing up a boat and bringing it back from ruin.
Put your best foot forward!
