Date of Reg : 27/09/37

A good usable example of the Riley Kestrel,one of the best sporting saloons of the 1930s.

Powered by the famous 12/4 engine mated to a 4 speed preselecta gearbox this Riley is capable of dealing with modern traffic conditions. Cruising at 55 to 65 mph presents no issues and stopping with the girling rod braking system is very effective.

This particular car is a late model in the Kestrel production run as evidenced by the switch panel on the dashboard and the lack of bonnet louvres.

Father and son owned for 40 years and used on a regular basis until the father`s death, the Riley was a cherished member of the family!

There are pictures on file of an ashframe and body rebuild as well as assorted invoices and paperwork.

A Riley well suited to touring and taking to events which awaits it`s next owner.
