1933 Riley Lynx Project


JOM 666

Chassis Number

Riley Lynx 2 door disappearing hood model and therefore most desirable. For restoration with all parts present except for the hood (frame present, windscreen glass (windscreen and supports present) and side screens.

Despatched from the works to Skurrays on the 17th January 1933. It`s history is unclear and somewhere it lost it`s original logbook and was re-registered in April 1940 as JOM 666. Wiltshire records do not show the car although some files are missing from the period in question. The chassis number, clearly visible, is 6020381 dating it to 1933.

The car is in need of restoration but has very sound front wings (recently acquired) and a purportedly rebuilt engine which is with the car but not installed. The correct all helical gearbox comes with the car and seems in sound condition. A rewarding project.
