Riley 1.5 RME Saloon.


The Riley has a superb history file starting with the original Buff log book.The car has all matching numbers,including its original registration number.Over the years there is a very comprehensive record of works performed,in 1991 the Riley was professionaly restored to include work to the Ash frame structure,engine re-build,repainted,rewired and trimmed with quality pale grey hide.In 2005 the Riley had some very nice upgrades to include a alternator conversion,Kenlow electric fan and a modern 5 speed gearbox.The gearbox conversion uses a Vauxhall unit,a new modified clutch was also added,the car now cruises very nicely at 50 mph,with perfect engine temperature and oil pressure.The Riley is very well appointed inside with stunning woodwork and lovely dials.The Riley was formally used for Wedding Hire as pictured,the car has been kept in tip top condition,expendature for maintenance over the last few months account for over £5000.The Riley has all of the pre-war charm,but being a 50s car with its upgrades the car is lovely to drive,not the challenge that older cars can offer.To see this car up close and have a sit inside you will not be able to resist its charm,be quick,this one will not be here long.
