Finished in sand over black complimented with wonderful leather interior, a totally charming example with good panel fit. The subject of a Comprehensive restoration in 2006 now on the button with new tyres, presenting very well, very smart, she keeps abreast of modern traffic. The previous, previous owner of this splendid Monaco acquired it from Riley exponent Jim Dunbar. Once in his workshop, he undertook a ground-up restoration which took four years to complete. Back on the road by 2004 he greatly enjoyed the car until parting company with it in 2009. The restoration consisted of a nut and bolt strip and rebuild, the body coming off and being repaired with new ash as required. All aspects of the car were carefully rebuilt. The engine was fully stripped white metalled and balanced and has proved both reliable and sweet running ever since. A set of Longstone tyres was fitted in 2019 and the car has been a regular competitor in VSCC rallies and Preston and District CC events. It has taken part in the club championship over the last 13 years, winning the Concours in 2019 and the driver s championship three times. These Riley Nines go so well and buzz along at todays road speeds with good brakes, and in the case of this Monaco, a cosy, draught free cabin. There is lots to like about this one.
