1950 Riley RMD - Left Hand Drive - Amazing Example For Sale

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a genuine Riley Factory made car (this is confirmed by the stamping on the chassis of the original car number which correctly starts with 60D).
Only 503 4 seater Riley Dropheads were made from 1949-1951 & it is reported that only approx 50 still exist.

Following its return to the UK, this car has been expertly restored by a Riley enthusiast (my father) who had already restored a RME and a RMD RHD. The restoration was completed in 2006 and along with a matching Riley RMD Right Hand Drive, these cars were primarily used for Weddings & Proms etc.

It retains the original engine, gearbox & rear axle & of course its chassis, brakes & front suspension.
It is fitted with the 2443cc twin cam inline 4-cyclinder engine, twin SU carburettors giving 100bhp at 4400rpm, 4-speed manual transmission, torsion bar front suspension, live rear axle & 4-wheel drum brakes. The internal seats & hood have all been expertly restored.

It had a new MOT in May 2022 - to confirm it's road worthiness and is fit for immediate use. It's only been driven a few miles since the MOT - just to ensure its maintained, being in garage storage the rest of the time. Having previously been used as a wedding car, it has a few additions to make it safer & more comfortable. These can be easily removed by the new owner, if required.

We also have loads of Riley spare parts to be included in the sale of our RMD, if the right price is achieved. Reasonable offers are invited.
An independent report about this car is also able to view on request.
Video’s & more photos of the Riley can be sent by WhatsApp.
