The vendor who is a member of the Riley club has owned this RME for 4 years. He is now having to sell due to the fact he is losing his storage space. The vendor tells us the car was resprayed in 2010.
Included in the file are some old MOTs, some going as far back as far as 1973, some old invoices some going back to the 70’s, 80s and 90’s plus more recent invoices from 2013 and 2015.

Auctioneers notes: This is a great opportunity to become the owner of a Riley. Riley’s are without doubt a very English automobile. Their pedigree goes back many years not just for building fine cars but also out on the track where they were the car to beat. This one we are offering for sale by auction is not concourse but a very usable car. Mechanically we are told by the vendor she is very sound. In the file there is a lot of interesting reading, she comes with the current V5c and an old V5. Going back to its condition the interior need a little TLC, the leather shows its age but there are no tears, carpets are ok but not original design. Makes a great starter Riley to use as is or restore. May be viewed strictly by appointment.
