Work has started in earnest:

All the bodywork has now been removed, Front Axle and Steering removed, Springs removed, all Chromed parts removed (to be replaced with painted items).  Let the work begin!

We are pleased to announce that this historic Riley TT Sprite, one of the original Works Team Cars, is to undergo a substantial rebuild this year- returning the car to its original 1935 appearance.   This is possible due to us having obtained many additional original and authentic components and instrumentation, which were previously unavailable.

 

Robin Lawton Vintage & Classic Cars is delighted to be able to work closely with the restorer and owners who are leading the project.  We will be updating our Website and Business Facebook page, at key stages, to show the project evolving. 

 

When the rebuild of AVC 19 is complete, Robin Lawton Vintage & Classic Cars will be managing the sale of what will be one of the most authentic, fully documented and historic Riley TT Sprites in existence.
