1954 Riley RMA 1500cc twin cam. Buyer will not be disapointed. It was professionally fully restored about 12yrs ago.  Tax exempt and MOT exempt. Full comp. insurance costs me £100.  It has a petrol filler on either side which is very handy.   This car is more than a head turner as people often take photo's when you drive by too.   Always garaged and we only take it out on dry days. Has a nice old 5 character number plate too.   During its last MOT. they were very impressed with the chassis saying that it's in better condition than some modern cars.   It starts the instant you push the button and drives very well.   A professional car sprayer told me that the paintwork is better than he could achieve.   We showed it at the Caple Manor vintage car show two years ago where it got lots of attention. and the previous owner used it for his daughter's wedding. The tyres are all good with plenty of tread and easily found as they are the same as a London Taxi uses. It still has the original jack and starting handle clipped inside the boot.   Everything on the car works but the petrol gauge does tell lies. nbsp;I use the odometer! and the clock thinks it's twenty past six for ever.  

Paperwork history included:  V5. old MOT's. workshop manual. Riley parts catalogue. drivers hand book (amusing read). a bundle of Riley owners club magazines. newspaper cuttings. and a 1947 Look After Your Car Book.  

New spares  included: distributor cap. rotor arm. condenser. spark plugs. starter brushes. brake hose. all three brake cylinders. exhaust gaskets. 2 rocker cover gaskets. big end shell. full set of valves & springs. 2 oil filters. speedo cable. assortment of hoses. various trim/piping. fuel pump service kit. fuel cap. Riley tax disc holder.

Used spares included: dynamo. 4 hub caps. steering wheel. brake drum. 2 wiper arms with blades. dash switch. 2 headlamps. rear view mirror. timing chain. 4 door handles. boot hinge. ash tray. span >  various chrome fittings plus other brackets/bolts etc.

We've owned it for 4 years and if we had the room we'd never sell it. but unfortunately my Alfa's soft top is starting to suffer from the wet so I want the garage space.   We've got agreed valuation of £7900 from Adrian Flux Insurance Co.
