Windshields are overrated, IMO. 

In the photo I posted the top of the windshield is directly in the captains line of sight. 

I prefer no windshield.

Thanks!  It does look really roomy.  Windshield is missing, but there is a center bracket (broken) and my husband found a picture of a 2 piece windshield on another boat, so thinking it had that.

It was bought in Texas, but in Oklahoma now.  We are in SW OK, so 20 miles from the state line.

Here's Amy and Mikey G. in their Falcon on Lake Norman at Rivetpalooza V in 2014. The largest of Feathercraft's tumblehome design. It has a 20 inch transom and powered by a 50 OMC outboard. I've ridden in it and it is quite roomy.

The numbers are pretty small and sometimes not to deeply stamped.
I would say they are under the wider than normal wood.

The motor is a 1957, the dash plate (one year only) with "choke to stop" is also only 1957. What does the title and or registration show for a serial #? It is a '56 or '57 Falcon II, only years for a Falcon.

It’s very possible that wood was added to the transom to be able to add the second motor and it is covering it

I see it had a TX registration. Is it still in Texas?

The outer transom wood looks a bit wider than original and could be covering it. I think it's definitely a Falcon II but he serial will confirm the year, 56 or 57.
