Footnotes

  • 'The body provides ample accommodation for four persons, whilst a commodious luggage boot is provided at the rear, blending gracefully in the body lines. Assuredly this is the design for the family man, who also appreciates a really sporting performance.' - Pitman's Motorists Library on the Riley Monaco Saloon.
    First registered on 14th September 1936, this charming Riley 9 Monaco is described by the vendor as an honest car in very original condition, benefiting from a sympathetic restoration striking a nice balance between refurbishment and originality. The car has been enjoyed and used locally in the last few years for a variety of activities: Sunday drives, pub runs, etc. The engine is said to start easily and purr nicely. In 2006 some significant mechanical maintenance was undertaken, including fitting new shell bearings to the engine, the total value of which was £2,310. Also, in 2011 a new radiator core was fitted at a cost of £474.

    'CHY 676' is finished in maroon with matching leather interior. The seats are described as original and still in remarkably good condition, with any wear adding to the car's character. Door panels/pockets, etc are original and in similarly good condition, while the carpet has been replaced at some stage and is in very good order. All woodwork is in good condition, the instruments are original and correct, and the doors close beautifully with a very pleasing 'clunk'. Nice features include a sun visor/roller blind, another roller blind in the rear window, and a fully operational sliding sunroof.

    The history file contains some interesting books and paperwork including an original paperback copy of the 'Riley Nine Instruction Book' issued by Riley (Coventry) Limited (cost 2s 6d); an original hardback copy of 'The Riley Manual of Instruction Maintenance' by J A Robson (2nd edition) published by Motor Racing Publications in 1952; and an original hardback copy of 'The Book of the Riley Nine, A Complete Guide for Owner-Drivers and Prospective Purchasers' by D H Warren (2nd edition) published in 1936 by Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons Ltd as part of the Pitman's Motorists Library. Other paperwork includes numerous invoices/receipts, a quantity of old MoT certificates and tax discs, a V5C Registration certificate, and a copy of the Riley Register from October 2006 showing one N Hamer as the owner. The car also comes with spare keys.
