1936 Riley Kestrel 6 light BRO397

Chassis number: 26/K/4397
Registration number: BRO397

The body is a rare six light with fastback styling making for a very rakish car. It is powered by the marques jewel-like 1494cc twin cam four cylinder engine allied to a four speed pre-selector semi manual transmission; a great improvement over the then prevailing crash 'boxes.

The 12/4 had 50% more capacity then the Riley 9 which significantly improves performance. In its day it was the fastest car in its class with a performance equal to cars two or three times its engine size according to contemporary reports. It is a relatively light car as unlike its steel competitors. the Riley was still a coachbuilt car with aluminium panels mounted onto an ash frame.

The car boasts a really large sunroof for semi al-fresco summer motoring. It also sports a wealth of delightful period detail items wherever one looks on the car from the Riley radiator at the front to the rear mounted spare cover.

The car comes with some very large bills from Blue Diamond services detailing comprehensive renovation to the area needing attention. but pleasingly retaining as much originality as possible. The red interior leather is mostly original & in a delightfully patinated condition. Attention has been given to the ash frame replacing old wood where required.

It comes to us in excellent running order & is a pleasure to drive.
