This Riley Nine Merlin . ith the Aero Sport body design is a bit special . Not only does it look superb with its Aero back end . t is also very rare now . n excellent condition and ready for many more shows . Also the history is amazing with so few owners and a lovely story to be passed on . With titled ownership etc . The lady owner from new in 1936 drove the car until 1960 and recorded in a journal every trip she ever too and every bit of work done etc . Upon her death it went to her daughter Lady Hermione Colwyn. Who had the car fully restored to take to shows and Rallies where it won many awards . The car then spent some time in a collection in Scotland where it was very well maintained . The interior carpets and headlining having been replaced and still look supeb. The sliding roof all works as it should Mechanics have also been kept on top of and the car runs lovely with no known issues . The head has been decoked and new gaskets . The cental chassis lubication system which never worked very well has been replaced with good old fashioned greese nipples . real good update. The car has had a recent service and oils and filters changed and all greese areas done . This Riley is a pleasure to drive and looks great . ith its fantastic provenance includin original buff logbook and handbooks etc this is a real find . There are also prize winning cards from previous Riley events. Lovely rare car to take to shows or drive on the country lanes of the UK . Would suit any collector or someone looking for a pre war car that ticks nearly all the boxes .
The engine is running like the preverbial watch . aving been maintained to a high standard . The gearbox is functioning exactly as it should and the brakes are all good. The upgrade to Grease points is a bonus and make it very easy to maintain . Both the hand throtle and the advance levers are functioning correctly . All electrics are working fine . ncluding the original samaphore indicators. There is an original battery cut off in the boot . The car start 1st time every time and soon warms up and runs great.
The original knock on wire wheels are in fine fettle having been restored .
The Black and Blue coachwork is superb . The colour combo is just right . With the Aero Sport styling and the original wire wheels the car has real presence. The original front wind out safari windscreen functions correctly .
The interior is very good indeed . The original seats have just the right amount of patina . The headlining is superb as are the carpets . The condition of all wood veneer is A1 . The sliding roof all works correctly and all gauges appear to be functioning spot on .
