Car of the Week 6

The Riley Royale

The following text and images have been kindly supplied by the Manor Park Classics Auction House.

A beautiful and unique hand built 1954 Riley Royale Coupe.

Fitted with a 2.5 litre Riley engine, this car left the factory as a Riley RME 4 door saloon with a 1.5 litre engine. The body of the Riley was badly corroded and beyond economic restoration. The chassis however was in excellent useable condition and a perfect candidate for a replacement body.

This striking 2 door coupe body was styled, designed and built by John Barlow.
