Introduced in 1945 the Riley RM series was 1 of the 1st all-new post war designs. featuring innovations such as independent suspension and rack and pinion steering. Although very modern in many ways the RM followed the Riley tradition of a strong chassis supporting an ash framework clad with steel and aluminium panels. The roof is plywood. possibly to keep the centre of gravity low or possibly because of the post-war shortage of steel. The vinyl roof ensures waterproofing. unlike the purely decorative vinyl roofs offered by Ford etc in the 60s. The RMA used the legendary Riley twin camshaft engine. Riley advertised the RMA as a Gentelman's sporting saloon' - they certainly offer outstanding handling. Riley described the RMA as 'Offering a high standard of performance. perfect riding comfort and exceptional luggage space. ' Well-known owners included Enid Blyton. Clark Gable. Sir Anthony Eden and Lord Louis Mountbatten. A total of 10. 04 RMAs were produced. with some 470 surviving in roadworthy condition today.

The vendor states that little is known of the early history of 849 UXD. until she was bought in the 80s by an enthusiast who undertook a thorough restoration. including the excellent respray. He sold her in 2007 to an owner who put her in dry storage for 2 years before selling her through Bonhams. Since then extensive maintenance has been completed. including; valves replaced. stainless steel exhaust fitted. instruments overhauled. petrol pump replaced with more reliable electric unit. steering overhauled and radiator recorded. The car has been carefully maintained. She has provided totally reliable service for local journeys as well as longer trips in the UK and France. She is admired wherever she goes.
