Vintage Special

We do restore/rebuild any Pre-War car asked to do.  Here We will show some of our Projects.

Vintage Riley Nine Special.  1930 Oily Rag Special.

We have a derelict Mk.IV Vintage Riley that we have decided to build up as an “Oily Rag Special”.

The Running gear and engine all came as a rolling chassis, long forgotten and as last used in the 50’s.

There was no vestige of body or wings. No record or knowledge of what body type was fitted originally.

Will be mechanically sound, but hopefully with the patina kept intact. The chassis is to be left at standard length.  A twin staggered seat body is in the mind’s eye to be left in aluminium and patinated with old used leather seats.

The body is planed not to be too low, as so many folk make specials that may look good as a static item but when the driver sits in they look like Noddy, stuck out wearing the body “like a skirt”

If this car appeals to your inner lusts, please contact to arrange a visit and by paying a deposit you can become the designer of your own destiny.

Body now being and fitted by

Brooklands Bodycraft of Oxford.

Will be taking to September Beaulieu on the Brooklands Bodycarft stand.
