1929 Riley Brooklands Special
A beautifully constructed Riley Brooklands Replica with a rebuilt engine from an original Riley Brooklands. Registered December 1929 this superb car is finished in red with complementing black leather upholstery and has many original and highly desirable parts.
The engine has been rebuilt and needs running in having only done 200 miles in 2 years. It was from an original Brooklands and has the large sump (11 pints!),`rat trap` oil filler (not fitted but included), 4 branch external exhaust and twin Su`s. This particular engine has Phoenix crank and rods, Newman cams to Sprite spec, Omega domed pistons, double valve springs and a block that has been bored and honed to standard. A mag conversion has been carried out and an original BTH mag is included.
The body is copied from the Ards winning car body using original methods of ash clothed in aluminium and the whole is finished off with 19 inch bolt on wheels shod with Blockley tyres.
The instrument panel is a joy with chronometric 6″ rev counter, speedo and the correct Rotax switch panel. The steering column is original to 1929 with the steering wheel and levers from a Brooklands.
A superb car ready to be rallied or campaigned.
