A 'real' Riley from Nuffield, with classic twin-camshaft high-pushrod engine, elegant fabric-topped bodywork, torsion-bar ifs, and hydromech brakes; only early ones have opening screens. 75mph but heavy on the hands at traffic speeds. Special-bodied dropheads and estates can be found. Dark blue badge distinguishes this one from 2 1/2-litre.
