Riley 1.5 For Sale
I am not using the car as much as I would like so thinking of selling, to good home.
The car reg is DNL 344B it is in white and blue. It is a ‘turn key’ car the mechanical side is pretty good I would happy to drive anywhere in it. It has had service items changed and new hoses rear shoes seals and tyres.
The interior is in green ( not sure if that is correct) but it in good condition with newish carpets. The paint is ok from 30′ away but is a bit flat, but the body is pretty solid a bit of rust poking through on front wings by door which is quite usual, as you will know. The chrome is in excellent condition especially the grille surround. I have done some recent wax oiling but it was always protected (heavy use of red oxide underneath).
Overall this car could be used every day as is or bought with the intention of improving the paint in due course. I would never have changed the paint condition myself as I like it as it is.
It will come with a years MOT from next week. I do have a NOS clutch for it and a few other spares, plus quite a bit of history. The car was bought from Simon Percival Motors (Kent).
I am looking for £4500 ono, as you know these are pretty rare now, and it is difficult to find a car that is complete, if I do not sell it then I will keep it and try and use it more as that swhat it needs.
As I said before I would prefer to pass it on to a Riley fan rather than someone who may want to sell it on or similar.
Thanks for your help,
Car is located near Heathrow
Quite a large quantity of RMA Spares. Too many in fact to list here. There are over 70 items in total, which range from a complete engine & gearbox, plus parts, through to instruments off the dashboard. If anyone has a spare chassis, I think there may just be enough parts to complete the job!
Should you wish to make contact, just ring Chris
I have a Riley 4/72 which is in a very poor state, but would yield many good spares-I can break it or sell the whole as is.Car registration is at PH1 3EE. Tony Allen
