1934 Riley 9 Monaco Saloon

A delightful post-vintage saloon, this Monaco has had much expenditure lavished upon it in recent years - running and driving beautifully this would be a perfect introduction to Riley ownership.First registered as JG 4867 on 18th August 1934, confirmed by the Birkenhead Council-stamped buff continuation logbook, this handsome Riley 9 was briefly resident in Manchester, Huntingdon, Yeovil and Essex before heading back north to Coventry again thereafter. The Monaco entered its previous ownership in January 2005 and has undergone much improvement at vast expense over the past sixteen years. This included the replacement of the ash body frame (to the scuttle) during August-October 2010 and a full respray of the bodywork by marque specialists Ashridge Automobiles during 2017-2018 at a cost of circa £13,000. It is also fitted with the all helical gearbox, which our vendor describes as a delight to use. MOT Certificates on file suggest that this delightful pre-war saloon has covered less than 10,000 miles since 1978 (the current odometer reading is c.31,500). Finished in gleaming Maroon complemented by the car's original Bottle Green leather upholstery, the patina throughout is wonderful, with that heady and intoxicating old car aura of ancient leather and seasoned timber. It's offered for sale with a large and comprehensive history file, factory instruction book and lots of invoices, receipts and other related maintenance/service paperwork. An ideal VSCC starter car with the added benefit of having one of the oldest and best-respected badges on the radiator grille.JG 4867 was purchased at auction in May 2021 and during this enthusiast ownership the Monaco was fully serviced and fitted with a new clutch. Offered with the aforementioned history file, this delightful post vintage saloon is ready to enjoy.
