Engine guys like the Riley with its crankcase mounted twin camshafts operating inclined overhead valves in hemispherical combustion chambers through short pushrods and rocker arms. "Yes, it's a 'Hemi'," but in classic British coachwork with a 3-position Drophead coupe top, independent front suspension and hydraulic front/mechanical rear brakes. This charming example was restored some years ago by a professional Jaguar restorer for his wife's personal use. After she passed away he sold it to the immediately previous owners, a Jaguar-collecting couple, who have continued to use and enjoy it but found they had "too many cars". The hydraulic brakes have just been rebuilt. Finished in Burgundy with Black fenders, the interior is upholstered in Tan leather complemented by a Black cloth top. It is equipped with semaphore turn indicators, tribar headlights, Lucas fog lights and a badge bar with three Riley club badges. Years of caring, informed ownership show in the attractive preservation of its cosmetics and its strong mechanical condition. It is a rare, attractive and very usable piece of postwar British motorcar history.
