Riley takes to the Discovery Live Stage for 'Built to Last' project
The talented and entrusted Practical Classics team take to the Discovery Live Stage at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, once again to accept a brand new restoration challenge this November. In tune and on topic with the show's theme this year of 'Built to Last', watch as these experts bring a 1951 Riley RMA back to life!
The car, known as 'CFB' is itself a survivor having been put into storage decades ago by previous owner and Practical Classics reader Rob Jones. The team will be leading the restoration of this quintessential British Classic over the three days at the show, aiming to have the car up and running for the first time in over 40 years.
Danny Hopkins, editor of Practical Classics explained: “I first spoke to Ron in the summer of 2015. He sounded like a decent sort and certainly had decent taste in cars. Ron had a 1951 RMA, a car he’d owned since 1972 and it needed a new home. Ron’s late father (an ex Rolls Royce engineer) bought the car as a potential father/son project, but unfortunately he passed away before the project could get under way.”
