List Prices for Sunfish Over the Years

Thread starter #1
Is there any available record of the the List prices for Sunfish over the years? I seem to remember as a child in the mid to late 1960s that the list price was somewhere between $500 and $1000 US. At that time I was sailing an O'Day Javelin which I "remember" my father purchased new with a trailer for around 3K. My brother and I were sent outside while my father bargained with the dealer and the shouting was loud enough for use to hear the final price...

For reference, I bought my first new Sunfish in 1972 for $625 (no trailer). The boat was actually a new 1971 hull with the old style rudder but the the aft cockpit storage compartment.

I have a lead on an O'Day Javelin in Pensacola if you are interested, should be available for around $1500 with trailer.
