1937 Riley Monaco - rare overdrive gearbox SOLD

1937 Riley Monaco - rare overdrive gearbox

The redoubtable Monaco was beginning to show its age by 1935 as its shape had changed little since 1927. An entirely redesigned model was to be introduced during the latter part of the following year, taking its styling cue from the larger ‘Adelphi’ model, the 1937 series Monaco was very much in keeping with modern trends, with a sleeker look and sloping boot. There was a choice of Preselector transmission, or a Borg-Warner 3 speed gearbox with dual overdrive. The original Monaco price tag of £298 was retained, making the new car a most attractive proposition for the motorist who required a quality car of this size.

Offered here is a very smart example of this now rare model, attractively finished in two tone green with dark green upholstery. The car retains the original Surrey registration number.

Almost all of this model were fitted with the pre-selector gearbox however, it is believed that only around 20 were fitted with a three speed overdrive gearbox. The gearbox has also recently been rebuilt.

The car has been the subject of considerable expenditure in the last few years and drives very well, representing an opportunity to acquire a stylish and practical Riley at modest sum.

More detailed photographs of the car are available on our website.
