1930 Riley 9 'Brooklands Evocation' built by Allen Clear

The sporting potential of the Riley Nine became evident shortly after its launch, the development of a ‘Speed Model’ was undertaken with initial work by Reid Railton and Parry Thomas. A new much modified chassis was to be used, this being shorter than the standard item and dropped behind the front axle and underslung at the rear.

Numerous successes were achieved with these ‘Brooklands’ models, one of the most notable being the 1932 TT win.

In recent years a number of ‘replicas’ of the Brooklands model have been created and the car offered here, which was built by marque guru Allen Clear in 2003, is amongst the very best and most authentic.

Bearing chassis number 609960, this car was created from the ground up, using original, restored and newly sourced parts. The objective was to create a replica of a Riley Works Team car, suitable for road and mild competition use, with potential for further development.

In 2014 the car took part in the Riley cavalcade at Le Mans celebrating Riley's winning the Rudge Whitworth Cup and the car was driven there and back from Surrey without a hitch.

The basis was a new ‘Speed Model’ chassis, which was boxed and drilled with strengthening plates, primed and painted then fitted with a full length heavy duty under tray for additional stiffening.

The following components were used during the build:

Original wheels - rebuilt and shod with Dunlop B5 tyres. Kleber tubes and rim tapes.
Road springs were re-tempered and fitted with additional leaves.
Oversized Hartford shock absorbers.
Refurbished original axles, steering box and steering wheel.
New wheel bearings & seals. Shackle mounts and all brakes new.
Original brake drums, radially drilled. Handbrake crafted from rare ‘Brooklands’ castings.
5.25:1 crown wheel & pinion, remote gear change, close ratio ‘Brooklands’ gear set.
Light alloy long-range fuel tank (copper lines run inside chassis rails) ‘Brooklands filler cap - machined from solid.

Head and block skimmed, new studs/nuts. Mains line bored. Standard liners. ‘Brooklands alloy sump with all new baffling & pipework, lengthened studs etc.
Bronze oil pump parts. Large journal crank (Merlin type) - balanced. Omega pistons, flywheel lightened 9lbs. Newman cams. Polished con rods. 4 branch exhaust manifold 1.1/8th SU carbs. Electric cooling fan. Bosch distributor. Radiator re-cored, Nickel surround. All new electrics etc.

Presented in virtually concours condition, the car has been sparingly used in dry weather with only road use. This car is ideal for road use, hill climbs or sprints and offers excellent potential for further development should one wish.

Photographs and a video will be updated shortly
