48" display
("salesman") sample


Excellent Original

1926 Old Town Canoe Co. display ("salesman's") sample model canoe, 48" long, originally shipped to J W Teshune Co., Hackensack, NJ. Copy of original build record available.
One of approx. 60 - 70 early antique samples made; very rare.
In mostly original condition with only very modest repairs made long ago. Interior recently cleaned of old flaking stain/varnish to reveal nice mellow original look. Exterior is 98% original paint; small 2" repair to one outwale; small piece of stem band missing at one end; slight repaired old 1" tear to canvas at one end. Retains its original OT decals and brand name lettering on both sides.
Also included are two early sample paddles (may not be OT factory, but well suited to canoe). Priced well below usual market and public auction sales for models of this vintage; includes shipping/insurance. Satisfaction fully guaranteed or money returned. More info available at:
