1960 Riley 1.5 Saloon

**Awaiting paperwork**

The vendor has supplied the following information:

A car previously sold by Mathewson's and purchased from auction in 2017, this is one of very few Mark 1 versions of the car still known to exist.

Much work has been carried out by the current owner with the original intention of keeping it and slowly bringing it back to superb condition. Now offered for sale due to the purchase of other cars.

Some body repairs and paintwork have been carried out, a change from solid black finish to two-tone green/black, new carpets, other refurbished interior trim areas. The car has a very sweet engine and gearbox with no clonks or rattles from the suspension and no known serious mechanical issues. Much paperwork and original workshop manual are supplied with the car and it would make an ideal first-time classic project for someone to buy and improve.

We highly recommend that you view in person any potential purchase and take time to inspect paperwork and make any relevant enquiries.

**This lot will go through our auction on Saturday 6 February**
