1930 Riley 9 Brooklands Special For Sale

For sale is my 1930 Riley Nine Brooklands Special

This machine was constructed from the chassis up by marque expert Alan Clear in 2003 to the absolute highest level. This Riley should not be confused with lesser cars that simply do not stand up to the closest scrutiny regarding attention to detail. That to me, is the most important aspect of a Pre War machine. Unfortunately there are cars out there which have been simply thrown together by amateurs who have no idea as to what they’re doing and worse, choose to deliberately cut corners.

The build quality in this car’s case can only be described as utterly peerless.

No stone was left unturned in building this stunning car. All components were either fully refurbished or new. The car has covered just 3500 miles and runs beautifully. It has a close ratio Brooklands gear set with remote change, long range alloy tank with racing filler, radially drilled drums, rebuilt axles/prop with new bearings/new diff etc, oversized Hartford friction dampers working in tandem with re-rated springs, Jaeger racing clocks and much much more.

The motor was fully rebuilt and has a large journal crank, twin SU’s, Omega pistons, Newman cams, lightened flywheel, Bosch distributor/coil and a 4 branch manifold with rear exit exhaust. It is not a cammy race engine but pleasingly tractable which idles fine/pulls well at speed. It holds strong oil pressure and the temp is stable. There is an electric fan fitted for when one might encounter traffic.

The bodywork remains in superb condition and now carries just the right amount of very light patina which looks sensational when parked up. A tonneau is stored in the boot area to protect the cockpit.

With the car comes a thoroughly comprehensive history file setting out all work done in building the car. This also includes the original buff log book which shows the car as being a Riley 9 open two seater. Whilst this car naturally would lend itself to competition I have enjoyed it solely on the road. I have a VSCC document which certifies that the car is eligible to compete in VSCC events such as hill climbs and track work.

Dare to be different!!

The car can be viewed by appointment please London W11 or Fairlop East London.
