1931 Riley 12/4 Sports SpecialReg. no. OV 1121Chassis no. 6012740Engine no. CE318154The Riley 12/4 has always proved to be an excellent basis for sporting specials, the 1500cc engine giving a good turn of speed when required. This example has been the subject of a £40,000+ restoration, between 1992 and 2016, work that included a fully rebuilt engine, completely new coachwork, an entire re-wire and a new interior. This has certainly been a labour of love for its current owner, the new custodian will now reap the rewards of this expensive restoration. It is offered here with an old-style logbook and some bills.Estimate: £12,000 – 15,000To be auctioned along with a fantastic selection of other vehicles on March 5th at our Showell Farm site, SN15 2NU.
