The Old Town canoe with serial number 145758 is a 17 foot, CS grade, HW (Heavy Water) model with open spruce gunwales, ash decks, ash trim, and a keel. It was built between June and September, 1946. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on March 24th, 1947 to Camden, Maine. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the thumbnail image attached below.

These scans were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others. Additional information about the project to preserve these records is available at http://www.wcha.org/catalogs/old-town/records/ if you want more details. I hope that you will join or contribute to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See http://www.wcha.org/wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://www.wcha.org/join.html to join.

It is also 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. Good luck with your restoration.
