I saw this. She looks really rough. I wonder if the twin perkins diesels were factory? Seems rare for a 32 with Diesels

Not likely. Some 37s were made with Volvo diesels, but I never saw or heard about a 32 coming from the factor with anything but gas engines.

I"ve been a Marinette fan since I was a teenager--which was (cough, gasp, wheeze) a long time ago so I followed the models till the mid-1980s when we started our family. My uncle had a 1970 28' express that got me hooked. He bought a new 32 sedan in 1979 and kept it for over 20 years. He came to be very sorry he sold it to buy a 42' Silverton. (Now that's going down for sure--though not as bad as his brother in law who traded in his 1962 Avanti for a Gremlin with a V-8--and then his wife's '69 302 Mustang for a Pacer. . . )
