1931 Riley Alpine Saloon


GN 8171


Chassis Number

Date of registration: 14/03/1931

A super example of the “Alpine 6”, powered by the 1633 cc Riley engine and mated to the silent 3rd 4 speed gearbox. Being lighter than the larger Riley 6 cylinder models, this fabric bodied car has slightly better performance owing to it`s higher power to weight ratio however it very much retains it`s vintage feel with it`s cable braking system which is surprisingly effective and also it`s period interior.

This Alpine has had much money lavished on it over the years with a total restoration some 9 years ago. The blue fabric body is in fine condition and is complemented by black mudguards, a lovely blue leather interior, blue carpets and a highly original dash panel with correct instruments.

It maintains it`s original GN registration number and nearly continuous ownership including buff logbook with indicated fuel ration stamps points to it`s originality. The car benefited from an engine rebuild by marque expert Keith Pointing and  has also been totally retrimmed with full fabric recovering; there is a large supporting history folder.
