Owned by the vendor for 5 years, previously owned by a Mr Holden in Yorkshire for 30 years. Original hide interior with mahogany window and dash trims with burr walnut veneers. The body was restored by Riley specialist David Brown in Manchester around 21 years ago totalling £12,000. The engine was replaced in 2018 with an identical rebuilt one at a cost in excess of £6000. The vendor carried out the running in procedure as recommended by Riley cars in the 50’s then took it to France for a 1500 mile holiday during which time it ran perfectly without trouble. The vendor has made a few sensible changes including electronic ignition and thermostatic radiator fan with manual over ride (all changes are reversible in case you are a purist!).
Good history file plus all tools (as supplied when new) are present with a workshop manual included. Was driven to the auction 110 miles from Devon with no issues.
