      Did Riblet ever make a center-pole triple?

        I’ve only ever seen bail carrier triples from Riblet. It’s pretty hard to have a center pole triple without the hanger behind the seat. While their later center pole quads had the hanger behind the seat, their earlier center pole quads and all their center pole doubles all had the hanger in the middle between the seats. Hall, Murray-Latta, and others were similar on their doubles. Thiokol, Dopp, and Heron had center pole doubles with the hanger behind the seat. I think Riblet was moving away from center pole chairs around the time they made the quads with the hanger behind the seat. Their bail carrier triples had been around for a while by then.
