1957 Riley One-Point-Five Pre-Production model SOLD by Auction

1957 Riley One-Point-Five Pre-Production model
Reg. no. MMR 334
Chassis no. R/HRS1-639
Engine no. 15R-U-H-639
Introduced in 1957 together with its similar but slightly less powerful Wolseley 1500 sibling, the Riley One-Point-Five made use of well-proven Morris Minor underpinnings, but with B-Series engine fitted, displacing, as the name indicates, 1.5 litres. The extra power from this engine, thanks also to twin SU carburettors, gave it a noticeable performance advantage over the Minor, as befitted Riley’s sporting image. The brakes were also improved. The general impression given by the model was that of a luxury car in miniature; the famous Riley grille adorned the front, while inside there was leather upholstery, a wooden dashboard and a full complement of gauges. In an eight year production run, just under 40,000 One-Point-Fives were made, compared to over 100,000 for the slightly lower-spec Wolseley. The first 150 cars were built at the MG car factory at Abingdon, later production cars were built at Longbridge. The first car number was R/HS1-501 so this is the 138th car built. It has not been used for many years and requires total restoration, but luckily it appears very complete. There is no paperwork or registration documents with the car, but as this car was first registered in Wiltshire, details should be available from the Wiltshire records office in Trowbridge.

This and 90 other classic cars will be offered for auction on June 17th at Allington, near Chippenham, Wiltshire SN14 6LJ
