Hi unfortunately i have to sell my Riley pathfinder i bought it from a farmer who had it dry stored in a barn and was last on the road in 1987

It is a 2.5 litre twin cam twin carbs engine

It is still in pretty good condition considering and is really solid underneath apart from 2 small panel areas in rear boot corners

The engine had all the core plugs rotted out and brass drain taps stuck open solid on the coolant side
I made sure the engine run ok and then stripped the manifolds off to fit new core plugs to the engine and fit new brass taps also . I then re fitted the manifolds and radiator back in and topped up with coolant thinking i can do the brakes next only to find there is another core plug that requires the gearbox to be removed to replace as all the coolant came out here so this needs to be done and was the final straw for me as i simply dont have the time to do this now unfortunetly so bit gutted to have to sell
The engine does fire up and run and goes into gears ok just needs brakes doning has 5 new tyres too

Ideal for someone to finish off with not to much work to do
Interior could do with a tidy up as can be seen from photos

The reg i have been offer 1000 pounds for from a company called elite registrations so must be worth a least 2k alone but id rather it went with car. Price as stated but i am open to sensible offers

Please call me on the number at the very bottom in the details section as i will not always see a message in an e-mail strait away thankyou
