Hello

can you provide a bit more information please?

a link to the ad might be helpful?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I saw the car on Motirbase where it is said to be a Brooklands Riley (9hp).
The year would be 1930 but the mileage would not be available after this length of time! There is a second pic of this same car on the same website.
I realise that my enquiry is not the usual kind so do please say if this is not one for you and that maybe .I should seek specialist advice.

Thanks Matt. Helpful info but I just wanted some idea of whether I could afford it. Not to worry.

If its a genuine article with racing history then I'd imagine well into £100K as a replica of this model is up for £70K here
