Well executed and beautifully constructed, This Riley ticks all of the boxes. This superb car is the only ‘Special’ to win the overall concours at the Riley Coventry event and winner of best in class on numerous occasions.
This lovely car is powered by a smooth Riley 6 cylinder T-Type engine with twin SU’s and 4 branch manifold, mated to a silent 3rd manual 4 speed gearbox with Brooklands remote gearchange. A 4.77:1 diff has been fitted for better top end speed and smoother power through the gears.
There is complete weather equipment and the tonneau can be fitted under the hood for further protection.
The red leather upholstery and burr dashboard complete with instrumentation is beautifully finished and the comfortable cockpit has room for the larger/taller driver. A large boot makes it ideal for touring or rallies and indeed the last owner has used it for many trips abroad.
All in all an ideal car to enter the Flying Scotsman, Alpine Trial or 1000 Mile Trial being roomy, reliable and powerful.
