The Riley has had thousands of pounds spent by a very keen enthusiast a very genuine gentleman he had a anti roll bar professionally fitted even though the Riley came with slightly wider wheels than the Wolseley he had them slightly deeper dished for better road holding.
The car handles excellent with fantastic road holding it certainly does keep up with modern day traffic today its uprated to a 1800cc and the engine has been totally rebuilt the twin car better version which was standard hes had an alternater fitted to up rate the electrics.
Most of these Rileys I have seen today have had the interiors changed to plastic this one here at Craner Classic Cars has its original interior and looks absolutely stunning.
The Riley versions had up rated larger brakes the car dives and stops as it should and takes corners excellent with its anti roll bar fitted there is lots of pictures for you to see on Craner Classic Cars close ups of the engine/ interior/ bodywork etc..
Comes with a huge history file of paper work containing receipts
