1934 Riley Nine Special

Discovered several years ago as a ‘trials special’ in poor condition, this motor car apparently commenced life as a 1934 Riley 9 Kestrel Saloon. There are photographs of the car ‘as found’.

More recently it has been reconstructed as a most attractive special with the work being carried out to an exceptional standard by the owner who was understood to be a respected restorer.

The stylish aluminium body has been constructed over a new ash frame and the chassis boxed for added strength and shortened to give an 8 feet 4-inch wheel base. The engine has been fully rebuilt and fitted with reprofiled camshafts, twin SU carburettors and a four-branch exhaust manifold.

The new 18-inch wheels are shod with Excelsior Comp H tyres.

Great attention to detail is evident and the car presents with superb paint and brightwork.

There is a double duck tonneau cover and since the rebuild she has covered less than 200 miles.

In summary a most appealing special which should prove ideal for VSCC sprints or hill climbs. It is fully road legal and has an excellent exhaust note.

For initial enquiries and to arrange an appointment to view from 2nd December when we open (please do not travel to us from Tier 3), please call us on the details below or the details below.
