RILEY 12/6

Mentone saloon, Kestrel saloon, Lincock fixed-head coupé, Ascot drophead coupé, Lynx tourer, Falcon saloon.

Small bore version of the 'six', with a stretched (114ins wheelbase) Nine chassis, so yearly changes are much the same as for the Nine. The Special Series triple carb engine was £60 extra, the preselector 'box (from '34) another £27, but standard cars are a bit gutless. Lincock coupés very rare, and some two-seat March Special bodies may have been fitted to this chassis.
