This past year I bought this sunfish project boat from the original owner who was 98 years old, he said he does not remember how long he had it, but he last sailed it 3 years ago on lake Ontario (good for him!!!). I was wondering if anyone could give me any more info on the possible year/ history on my cute little project?
Thanks!

It used to be you’d have a sailmaker add the window as they came without them. I’m sure that is the case here. I am not positive, but I think when they switched from Ratsey to Fogh windows might have become an option.

you are correct the man had it put in 3 years before I bought the boat, it is not original. Other than that and the odd pin hole here or the its in great shape.
