Riley introduced the RM series car after the war and built the RMD series from 1949 until 1951. In 1949 production moved to MG, so some might call this car an MG. This rare DHC model is listed on eBay. Restoration began in the 1970’s and was never completed. It was repainted and should look nice under all the dust. The wood body frame is in good condition and there is no rust. This will be a beautiful and unique car when it’s completed.
The seats and door panels have been recovered in leather. There is still a lot of work to be done in here.
This should be the 2.5 litre engine. The cylinders were filled with oil. It looks mostly complete. Hopefully with a little work it can be made to run again.
The top bows will need to be replaced but it has a new top that was never installed. Lots of parts are included but some are sure to me missing. This car will be amazing when it is completed. What do you think this Riley could be worth if it could be reassembled as it is, replacing only the roof bows? Average values are about $25,000. What do you think someone will be willing to pay for it? This will certainly not be a quick flip.
