A beautiful example of the most attractive of Riley open tourers (in our humble opinion).
Powered by the smooth 6 cylinder Riley engine with twin bronze bodied Su`s mated to a 4 speed manual gearbox, the car runs well and sounds as good as it looks. It really is the epitome of 30`s open top motoring; lovely lines, elegant and with 4 seats surprisingly practical.
The car is finished in deep maroon with matching leather upholstery and flecked carpet with cream wire wheels, a pleasing combination.
The engine runs smoothly and has done little mileage since a rebuild by Keith Pointing, a `go to` person for Riley engine work, utilising a replacement block with invoices on file.
Rotax lighting and instrumentation is present and correct and this super car will surely benefit from a new custodian who would use it more frequently.
A car to cherish and enjoy.
