1961 Riley 1.5 in exceptional condition. Fitted with a 1.8 MGB engine (a popular swap), 5-speed box, power steering and subtly wider steel wheels. Wheels and gear stick aside, the car looks externally and internally stock and is in lovely condition and proves a great drive. Very practical classic and ideal show car, it has a good history file.

The Riley has a fat file of invoices and information attesting to a restoration in the 2010s, including installation of the MGB engine, Ford gearbox and Vauxhall power steering, brake servo, plus lots of MoTs in recent years (last one expired just a few months ago and no longer required of course), an original “Riley One-Point-Five Operation Manual” and a V5 with the correct replacement engine size and colour scheme. The engine bay is very good and the interior is lovely, complementing the exterior and the leather and wood make this a great place to be. To our minds this is an ideal compromise between a wholly original classic and a car you could use pretty much every day if you wished or else take to shows. It is much admired and genuinely interested parties won't be disappointed.

We have approx 50 decent detailed photos of the Riley which we can make available to any genuine enquirer.
