1953 Riley 2½ litre RMF Saloon
 
Although the ‘RM’ Series were products of the Nuffield Organisation, they remained true to the Riley ethos of old, being of high quality with sporting handling, appealing to the enthusiastic motorists of the time.  
 
The 2½ litre RMF developed 100bhp which made for an impressive performance and, given the right road conditions, a maximum speed close to the then magic 'ton' could be achieved.
 
Restored professionally during the mid ‘80’s the car has been carefully maintained and has had much subsequent work carried out on her by a highly regarded Riley specialist (documentation and invoices support this).  The car spent some years in Norway and has won a ‘Best in Show’ at a classic car event in Sweden.
 
The engine underwent a full overhaul in 1989 and details are supplied in the substantial file supplied. Considerable expenditure has been lavished upon this fine Riley ensuring it remains in excellent order. Registered on 29th September 1953, this car is one of the last RMF models before the introduction of the Pathfinder that same year.
 
Whilst in the care of its current enthusiast owner, the car has been carefully maintained and has had much work carried out on her by a highly regarded Riley specialist (documentation and invoices support this).
 
This 1953 Riley RMF is a late model being one of the last before the introduction of the Pathfinder.
  
Today, these Rileys benefit from excellent Club backup, with a very good spare parts supply and their popularity endures.
