Riley Two Point Six

Well here is real rarity I have been in and around the classic car trade for over 35 years and I have only seen 3 Riley Two Point Sixes in my time and this is one of them. The first was 20 years ago and was a project car the 2cnd was 2 years ago at a small museum and this one which I couldn’t resist owning ! This stunning example has been the subject of a quality restoration over a number of years and has been treated to a bare metal re-spray in its original colour scheme of Charcoal Grey over Firlford Grey. This beautiful example comes with a large history file, heritage certificate, workshop manual and original sales brochure. First registered 17 March 1958, supplied by Guy Salmon Motors, Surbiton Surrey at a cost of £1568. This is one of a production run totalling 2000 cars of which a portion were sent for export hence making this Riley model extremely rare today. The first owner kept the car for 21 years covering 31,500 miles, the car has now covered 57,700 miles believed correct. Paint and panel fit are superb as is the underside and chrome work, all the wood has been refurbished, new quality carpets have been fitted along with a new West of England wooden head lining, the seats and door cards are original so keeping that all important patina and character that is so often lost with over restored cars. Mechanically on the button with good oil pressure, smooth gear changes from the automatic box, make this Riley a delight to drive. This Riley would not only grace any show ground but could easily be an award winner if thats your thing. Finding one is very difficult, finding one in this condition could take you 35 years, I know it took me as long to find this one ! It’s going to be a real wrench selling this car !
