This nicely aged Riley RME has come to us having had considerable expenditure over the past four years. Our Riley comes with an exceptional history file dating back to the late 1950's. Original BP Energol Lubrications sheets come with the car from 1958 - 1967 recording the mileage from 35674 to 94,340 in 1967. MOT certificates start from 1458 miles in 1972 and record mileages at 1513 in 1975, 3204 in 1992 and steady, consecutive use from 1992 to date with the mileage now recorded at 11,000 miles.
OLV 485 has had considerable work since the early 1990's and invoices to date total well in excess of £10,000. The Riley engine was rebuilt in 1996 and this included a crank re-ground and new bearings. The mileage since the engine rebuild is less than 5,000. The last owner purchased the car in 2005 and has spent over £7000 on some rolling restoration work. The majority of the work has been mechanical and improvements have been made whilst using the car for showing. In the five years ownership, the Riley has covered over 3,000 miles.
The Riley retains its lovely original leather, carpets and dashboard. The upholstery looks beautiful and genuine with a nice patina. Carpets are in very smart condition and the headlining and steering wheel look new. The bodywork is in good order with older paintwork and bright, presentable chrome. Wheels and tyres are in very good order and the car drives well with a strong, responsive engine. The last owner has provided us with an on going report and programme/schedule of all works carried out by an independent specialist and this comes with the car. The Riley has arrived with us on the road tax, tested and driving nicely. The last owner has advised us of some necessary work to the rear axle which will be carried out in our workshop for the new owner.
A great opportunity to acquire a sensibly priced RME.
