- Drophead Coupe conversion, body converted and restored in 2015 - Engine overhaul in May 2016 - Lovely open tourer ready to be enjoyed The RM Series cars were the last 'proper' Rileys - the swansong of the marque before it was subsumed into the mighty British Motor Corporation. The model range was manufactured in Coventry until 1949, when production moved to the MG factory at Abingdon. The RMA/RME were large Saloons powered by 1.5-litre four-cylinder engines, while the 7-inches longer RMB/RMF models featured twin-cam 2.5-litre units. The RMC and RMD were limited edition soft-tops. While the latter was a conventional two-door Drophead Coupe, the RMC was a two-door Roadster version of the RMB. The 2.5 litre four-cylinder powerplant produced some 100bhp and was also unusual in having twin pushrod-operated camshafts placed high in the cylinder block. The chassis number of the car offered today appears to denote it started life as an RMB saloon. The vendor advises JLV 906 was converted to drophead coupe coachwork in 2015, a new interior fitted, whilst a comprehensive engine overhaul was carried out in May 2016. Now resplendent in Bronze with Magnolia interior, this most handsome Riley
- 1 of just 52 or so Nine Gamecocks known to have survived - Current family ownership since 1965 - Offered with a collection of invoices, green log book and old MOT's It was the Riley 9 models produced with a wide choice of body styles between 1926 and 1938 that really put the company on the map, which with its unique 42bhp 1,087cc twin-camshaft engine soon found success in competition, further boosting the order book. During 1931, the Gamecock variant became the range's prime two-seat Tourer. It was an immediate success, with the underslung chassis producing a sleek, low body design quite unlike anything else available at the time. 'TF 7539' is one of c.52 Gamecocks known to remain in existence. Within the same family ownership since c.1965 it is currently part dismantled and in need of restoration, but believed to be complete. A replacement engine was installed in 1965 and another unit and gearbox are available by separate negotiation. Finished in White and trimmed in Red, the Riley comes complete with green log book and selection of invoices and old MOTs. A unique opportunity.
A very sound and striking example of the popular RM series. Comprehensively restored in 1979. Mechanically excellent, having been well maintained since. Chassis and body excellent. Re-wired. Interior excellent having been re-trimmed a few years ago. Ash frame sound. Interior wood excellent. Paint bright, but could do with re-spray. This car does drive well.
