Certainly not the average price, more what I'd call the mean high water price.

I used this search for reference 1972 C&C Boats For Sale

I'd say you are grossly underestimating the expense of upgrading an older boat...while the engine rebuild/replacement, at say $7-9,000, is the biggest single expenditure (given you are looking at a boat with a robust solid glass hull), it ain't hard to find another $20,000 in probable costs, if not made by a PO...but the learning experiences of buying cheap and paying again and again is one of the charms of boat ownership. It all depends on your expectations...
