Our pals over at Freedom Boat Service have found a true gem. An all original Chris Craft Riviera. Original everything, including the over spray on the engine. Cloth tape, original key, rubber flooring. This thing belongs in a museum, or use it and have fun. The value in this boat though is in the purity of it and would make a great part of any collection. And of course these photos a fantastic reference for those of you restoring one.
Original seats and flooring!
Look at that! Thats how the factory did it!
Wonderful detailed flag!
Nice and clean
Original thread count. Note stitching is in red with 19-20 stitches. Hey.. Just saying, if another guys got a perfect one and your stich count is right?
Note the grain pattern – This is a fantastic interior
OK, the lettering needs to be ditched! Star?
I asked Dave about the Seams. She was varnished and the seams are not original.
Just add water… Warm Water
Cloth tape and factory over spray! Hell Ya! The perfection of imperfection! Is the over spray original?
This model is considered by many as one of the nicest designed small runabouts that Chris Craft made in the Post War Era! And it can all be yours just by clicking here!
