1953 Riley RME 1.5 Litre
Despite becoming part of the Nuffield Organisation in 1938, the Riley models that followed immediately after the Second World War were to remain true to the Riley ethos. Designated 'RM' Series, the new cars were available in 1.5 and 2.5 litre forms, both being class leaders and offering an exceptional level of roadholding with their rack and pinion steering and independent front suspension. They were also particularly elegant, with sleek up to the minute styling and a high level of equipment.
Dating from 1953, having been first registered on 1st May that year, this 'RME' model is in extremely sound condition having been restored during the 1980s and carefully looked after since. It retains the original maroon interior trim and has recently undergone a full brake overhaul, cylinder head work and carburettor rebuild and reinstatement of the heater.
Driving very well, with a particularly quiet engine, this Riley is offered with extensive paperwork including various Riley publications , green RF60 logbook dating back to 1963 and much additional information. A genuine and correct example, it retains its original registration number and has both flashing indicators and operational Trafficators fitted with flashing bulbs for added safety.
