1934 Riley 12/ 4 Lynx Tourer

Registration - JY 3660
Chassis No - 44T2062
M. O. T. - Exempt
Odometer - 16, 899

The Riley 12/ 4 was one of the most popular pre-war Rileys. The range included Falcon, Kestrel and Lynx bodies, and this open-top Lynx was the last to be launched. The vendor reports this 1934 model has a significant history file of paperwork, including photographs of the restoration in the early 2000s. It is finished in Old English White with a red leather interior. The vendor reports that the car started life as a 12/ 6, and was later fitted with the more desirable four-cylinder version of the Riley engine. A very handsome car that’s ready to be used, it includes the fold-flat windscreen and comes complete with side screens and weather equipment. The vendor adds that the condition of the engine, transmission, electrics, bodywork, paintwork and interior are all ‘excellent’.

Riley was founded in Coventry in 1890. Originally focused on bicycles, the founder’s sons diversified into automobiles and launched their first car at the London Motor Show in 1913. The business grew quickly in the 1920s, although by the mid-1930s, it faced challenges, and was acquired by Lord Nuffield in 1938 to become part of Morris Motors Ltd. Distinct Riley models still continued to be developed for the next few decades, although the brand eventually faded and became dormant from 1969.

In summary:

· Classic four-seat tourer in Old English White

· Described as in ‘excellent’ condition throughout

· Comprehensive record of restoration in the early 2000s
