  • 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 an 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.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months
