1936 Riley 12/4 Lynx - Now Sold
One of the most desirable and sought after of all pre war Rileys is the 12/4 Lynx. A comfortable and well equipped sporting tourer, with the advantage of four doors, the Lynx has attractive lines and good performance. Available from the 1935 season, the Lynx was produced in relatively small numbers up until the Nuffield takeover in 1938.
The famous 12/4 engine was to appear late in 1934 and was to enjoy a long and illustrious career, powering a host of different models and achieving numerous successes in competition. With the twin high camshaft layout first used on the Riley Nine engine in 1926, the 12/4 power unit was of truly classic design and was still in use when the final RM series model ceased production in 1955.
Presented here is a 1936 model which has been in the present ownership for the last 20 years. Some 5 years ago an extensive and meticulous restoration was commenced, this being finished earlier this year and culminating in an award at the Riley Register’s Coventry Rally.
Since completion, the car has covered less than 400 miles and the engine is still running in. A list of work carried out is available on file. A correct 'matching numbers' car, it retains the original distinctive Berkshire registration number.
Rarely do such good examples of the 12/4 Lynx come onto the open market, so this represents a special opportunity to acquire one of these fine cars.
