20 Feet 1963 Century Raven

Only 170 Capris were built in the 21 foot length, and only 50 were built with the Chrysler Marine Hemi V8 engine. This example was purchased in the late 1970's by her current owners and used for a short time before being put into storage. In 2020, the boat received significant work, including full paint and varnish all around, a clean and degrease of the bilge to prep for fresh paint, all hardware removed and buffed for reinstallation. The original Hemi engine was sent out and had the carburetors rebuilt, fuel pump rebuilt, all gaskets replaced, water pump, ignition, all cleaned and detailed for reinstallation. The correct interior color would be "special flame red". The fuel tank was also removed, cleaned, painted, and a new sending unit installed.
