History of this model:

1949-1954, dimension : 5.50m
The Rivieras were introduced late 1949, as 1950 models, expanding the CUSTOM theme into a full range of sizes. The baby 16′ was beautifully proportioned but unfortunately underpowered with only enough space under the hatch for a “B” four-cylinder engine. 174 were built before the 16′ was terminated during 1951.

In contrast, the 18′ “RIVIERA” was very popular, and today is recognized as the quintessential 1950s runabout with its blonde decks, graceful proportions and excellent performance when powered by higher horsepower “K” engines. 1,210 were built between 1949 and 1954, when RIVIERAS were replaced by CAPRIS.
