Practical Sailor''s book "Used Boat Buyers Guide" is a great source for the type of information you''re looking for. I believe they republished an updated version last year, with more boats included. The ''70''s C&C 35 has a nice sheer and sails pretty well. (She rates a bit faster than several newer versions that came out later.) I looked at one boat that had been raced to Bermuda several times. By now, these boats are likely to be looking pretty tired, even if they haven''t raced a lot. Even tired, though, they can still look good without having everything all shiny-new. Below is simple, but adequate for cruising. Take a look - you may be able to pick up a nice boat for a good price.
