1935 Riley 12/4 Special 2+2 sports tourer SOLD

First registered (V5C) 25 March 1935.

A Riley 12/4 Special built on a shortened by 9”, narrow track 22T chassis (22T1359); red with Black trim.

Our car has the very desirable and potent 1466 cc high twin cam engine known as the 12/4 (F6827) with twin SU carburettors, standard Armstrong Siddeley pre-selector gearbox, knock on wire wheels (4.75 – 5.00 x 18 inch), and a full tonneau.

The front seats are adjustable and very comfortable.

It was rebuilt by the Secretary of Riley Register from a derelict 1935 12/4 Riley Kestrel 22T, over a period of 28 years from 1978, when the mileage was recorded as 32282 miles.

It has done a trouble free 4500 miles since then and runs very well.

The steering, braking (Girling rod operated) and rear axle have received a thorough overhaul over the last 3 years with the previous owner

They also fitted a new battery and had the radiator re-cored

We have had the wheels painted black and new Blockley Tyres fitted all-round.

BXA 740 was built as much as possible in the “Riley Spirit” and retains a majority of original Riley fittings. it shows a lovely patina throughout the entire car

The car has a classic and desirable low line and sporty shape with full and attractive dashboard instrumentation, and comes with the benefit of not only two small rear seats (suitable for children or luggage) but also some luggage space in the rear.

For more competitive activities it would benefit and look very nice with the addition of 2 aero screens.

There is an old Buff Log Book (1959), some invoices of work done, and some MOT`s from 2006.

The history file includes a picture of the original derelict vehicle and some pictures taken during restoration.

Offered with 12 Months MOT
