DESCRIPTION

In 1938, Riley became part of the Morris-MG-Wolseley Nuffield Organization. However, the RM, announced in 1945, preserved Riley character with a technically advanced chassis and with coach-built body choices of definite sporting flair. Carried over was Riley's own engine, featuring hemispherical combustion chambers and twin camshafts operating inclined valves through short pushrods. Riley RM-series cars, often called “the last of the real Riley's,” were among the first new British designs after WWII. The successful pre-war engine design was carried over a featured hemispherical combustion chambers, dual overhead camshafts and dual SU carburetors. Mated to a 4-speed manual transmission the Riley was capable of over 100 mph and examples are highly sought after today by both collectors and enthusiasts.
