1953 RILEY RME 1.5 - BEAUTIFUL ALL ROUND, NEW PANELS. For Sale

HERE is my beautiful 1953 Riley RME, the model that replaced the earlier RMA. Only a few thousand were built. She is a stunning example in light grey and dark cherry red. As pretty as a picture and one hell of an eyeful of a car. New panels in recent years have been all four wings and running boards. She looks just as impressive underneath. Her last MoT (obviously she does not require one legally) expired in April of this year and there were no advisories and so there's a great deal of peace of mind in that department. Twenty-five years ago, she had covered 70,000 miles and now the speedo reads just 72,000. So a couple of thousand miles covered in a quarter of a century! Within in the past year she has had new leaf springs and shackles, her carburettor stripped and fully rebuilt by Just Historic Cars (extremely reputable classic car specialists), a complete new stainless steel exhaust system and a new Everflex vinyl roof. Interior-wise, she is lovely too. Her dark brown leather needs nothing doing to it at all and all woodwork in top class. The head lining looks to be new as well. When it comes to being behind that super large steering wheel, She is a total delight on the road. All my classic cars are treated as the equivalent of motoring antiques. This one, for example, is 66-years-old. They cannot be compared to the wife's six-month-old Chelsea tractor and they are bound to come with imperfections, quirks and bits and pieces that will need attention even if it is some time in the future. They do however come with oodles of charm, appeal and are there to be loved like a family pet. If you are new to the classic car scene, then please bear all this in mind. Most examples have clearly had work over the decades and I cannot predict how much or how little they will need in the future. That, I am afraid, is the nature of the beast in the world of classic cars. Motoring antiques is what they are. I love my Georgian dining table, but I can see all the scars and signs of previous woodworm. Had I wanted a brand new table, I would have gone to Oak Furniture Land. Well perhaps. Demand is outstripping supply these days and they don't make the old girls any more. So, make some allowances and drive away with a smile on your face. It goes with the territory, and therefore must be accepted, that they are always going to need on-going care, attention and repair. Don't tell me some way down the line that the full beam doesn't work or that you have discovered something I knew nothing about. They are bloody old. It happens. They come in and they go out. It seems as though I have become a "re-homer" of classic cars. I accept all major debit cards and a ten per cent deposit is required at the point of sale with the balance due within three days. I can also assist with delivery and so please ask for a quote. Thanks for reading, Martin. (07595-020282).
