Reputed to have been named after the RAF’s Gloster Gamecock fighter plane, this sporting two seater Riley made its debut at the 1931 Olympia Motor Show as part of the new range of models for the 1932 season.
The Gamecock attracted considerable interest, with its low slung styling while the body featured a long tail offering good luggage capacity.
The sporting theme was continued with a fold flat windscreen and a rakish, purposeful appearance.
The example presented here has benefited from much work in recent times, including an engine rebuild by a well known specialist, using a stronger Merlin crank, lightened flywheel, Omega pistons and Kent cams. Additional work has included overhaul of the gearbox, rear axle and steering box.
The wheels have been rebuilt and much electrical work carried out. The tyres have also been very recently renewed and a Bosch 009 distributor with automatic advance has been installed.
According to the documentation file, the car spent some years in Florida and was subsequently restored upon its return to the UK.
A really well – sorted sporting Riley, it is a pleasure to drive, feeling taut, lively and precise on the road.
