Chris Craft Capri Original Seat “Cushions” On Ebay.


Nice color

Well, here is another cool little find on ebay. Now, if you need these this is gold. OK, green gold. But here is the rub. You will need the seats to go with them, and from what it looks like, its just the cushions. And in that is the issue. Because the seats will have the same patina as the cushions. So? What do you do?


Cool seats

Under the seats is OK to change, but those seat backs will define everything. Maybe the seller is doing his seats and maybe you can ask for the seatbacks to be carefully removed. Either way, you know we have a thing for original anything, and why this is for sale is a little beyond me.



Are these original?


Dang! There is the tag? Are these part of the remade tags that were made a while back?


Either way they look cool and aged.

    Don’t understand why would they sell the cushions and not the seat backs? Or, if they are going to change the material, the material itself from the backs. Guess I have too much time on my hands this morning.

    Those are definitely original. The color was called “Mint Green” and only used for five months on the early 1957 19′ Capri’s. I had a original green interior Capri in the shop for a bottom last year.

    If the mint green was only used for a short time, I suspect having an original to the boat mint green interior is quite rare and would add to the collector value. To bad the owner wants to remove it. I’d leave it original. Go figure!
