    The Old Town canoe with serial number 167897 is a 16 foot long Guide model with a keel. It was built between July and October, 1958. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on April, 20th, 1959 to Birmingham, Alabama. A scan showing this build record can be found below.

    This scan was created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others as you probably know well. Additional information about the project to preserve these records is available at if you want more details. Your life membership to the WCHA is much appreciated.

    It is possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description doesn't match your canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
