On the Surface: This 1958 Riley 1.5 exudes the original charm of a 50’s Riley. It features a striking red exterior paired with a red leather interior accented by white piping.

Maintenance & History: The Riley comes with an extensive historical record, including the original green registration document, a collection of old tax discs, an original Riley One-Point-Five owner’s manual and operation manual, some old magazine cut outs, and various old invoices.

The Model: The Riley One-Point-Five was produced by Riley from 1957 to 1965. It was built on the Morris Minor floor pan and shared its suspension and steering, but it was distinguished by its more powerful 1489cc B-Series engine and MG Magnette gearbox. With twin SU carburettors, the Riley 1.5 boasted a significant power advantage compared to its Wolseley counterpart, delivering 68 hp. This model, a Series 1 from 1958, represents the early production run following its launch at the 1957 London Motor Show.

Sale Insight: This 1958 Riley 1.5, with its wealth of original documentation, presents a rare opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts.
