1950 Riviera 20 interior pictures

Post by Archman » Sun Apr 22, 2018 3:04 am

My new to me 1950 Riviera 20 has had an interior redo at some point in the past.
Think some is original, and some remodelled what I am looking for are some pictures of a factory interior.
I have searched the web, and can not seem to find any pictures that give me confidence in regards to trying to reproduce
So keen to see what people can offer

Thanks in advance

I have an 18' Riviera of 1952 vintage. Purchased an interior kit from Jack Mayeaux Upholstery and am very happy with the results. I suggest that you call Jack at (503)267-8824. He is very knowledgeable about original Chris Craft upholstery and is easy to talk with; his upholstery work has won many awards at prestigious shows. I believe the 20' Riviera had upholstery similar to the 18' Riviera and Jack can probably answer your questions about original 1950 vintage 20' Riviera upholstery. Good luck.
