1929 Ex-MacLachlan Riley 9 Brooklands Special For Sale

• Riley 9 Brooklands models have long been amongst the most sought after of Riley's racing sportscars and one of the better known exponents of these cars on the Irish racing scene was D.C.MacLachlan. MacLachlan lived on a farm in Crosshaven, Country Cork but raced Rileys to great effect at venues such Ards, Phoenix Park and Cork amongst others. Being involved in the running of at least two garages in the area, his cars were always well prepared and incredibly effective too!

Over the ensuing years he is believed to have built and prepared various sports and racing Rileys and this appears to be just such an example. It was rescued from the MacLachlan farm residence sometime after his death in need of restoration. Although little more of it's early history is know at present it features the classic Brooklands Swan neck style chassis with underslung rear end and correct axles.

Since being repatriated to England the car has undergone a comprehensive rebuild. The chassis was stripped blasted, primed and painted and new bushes and bearing fitted where ever neccessary. Bodywork has been attended to by coachwork specialist Ian Pitney with a new ash frame and remodelled tail.

Over £6,000 has been spent on the engine alone ensuring that it now goes as well as it looks. To finish the looks an attractive and effective external Brooklands style exhaust was designed and fitted by Dave Tyler.

The car sits purposefully on its 19 inch centre lock wire wheels shod with new Longstone tyres, ready to burst into action at the push of the button. Importantly it has been successfully and correctly registered with the DVLA and positive enquiries have been made with the VSCC about the allocation of an elligibility form allowing to run, once again in the plethora of Vintage events avaiable to any enthusiastic owner once things return to some sort of normal.

In short this is an attractive and effective Riley 9 Brooklands Special with an intriguing history which is ready to use and only reluctantly being sold to fund another project.
