Riley Pathfinder, 1956
Riley Pathfinder, year 1956. Chassis number 42XX, engine number DP25R24XXX. Colour two-tone blue metallic divided by a red pin-stripe on the sides. Interior pale grey leather seats and blue carpet. This remarkable and rare Riley Pathfinder was sold new in the Netherlands. The automobile comes from the third owner. All previous owners and the history are known. From 1953 until 1957 only 5152 cars of this type were built. The Pathfinder is fitted with the splendid ‘twin-cam’ Riley four cylinder engine. Remarkable is the left hand position of the ‘shift-stick’ in this left hand drive car! The interior is well clad with wood panels and ample space is available for 5 adults. This Riley is in good to very good condition throughout. It is not likely to encounter another of these rare cars at classic car events or even offered for sale.
