WTB: 1980 or 1981 S&S

I’m considering starting a build of an 80-81 Stars and Stripes and am looking for a boat to start with. These years are the sweet spot for me with the old-style curved windshield but a nice slalom wake, tracking fins, etc.

Requirements are that it should be a complete power slot boat and trailer, but cosmetic and mechanical condition are less important. I would plan to tear it down completely and rebuild it from the stringers up, including a re-gel if necessary. The vision is a “resto-mod” (for the car folks here), i.e. original-ish looking but with modern colors, fuel injection, accessories and finish / interior.

If you know of a good starting point available / for sale, please let me know. Thanks!
