Robin Lawton Vintage & Classic Cars are proud to Offer for Sale: Ex-Works Competition Department 1935 Riley TT Sprite AVC 19 - Chassis Number 22T1750 (one of 7 Works-built models) prepared to Original Specification. FIA, FIVA, HTP, VSCC We are proud and excited to bring to the market one of the most original Riley Team Cars AVC 19 which has just been the subject of a fastidious and long awaited restoration to original specification. The car now looks just at it did in 1935 when it made its race debut at the 1935 Tourist Trophy driven by Von der Becke and finishing a creditable 9th against some extremely formidable competition. The complete rebuild of this car, which was finished just over a week ago, was only possible because Robin Lawton Vintage & Classic Cars - were able to assist with securing the acquisition of numerous original components both body and mechanical which had hitherto been unavailable for at least the past 40 years! This Riley has a distinguished race history which includes: 1935 Tourist Trophy, 1936 French Grand Prix (finishing 3rd in the under 2 litre class), 1936 Tourist Trophy, 1937 Le Mans 24 Hours, 1937 French Grand Prix, 1937 Montlhery, 1945 Paris Benoist Cup and following an earlier restoration which was completed in 2009 the car was campaigned at Prescott and several other VSCC Events by Riley guru, Allen Clear. Significant historic competition cars always great create interest, but it is rare to find a car with such comprehensive and fully documented provenance dating back over 80 years. Many Evocations of the delectable TT Sprite have been created over the years but this is a true original with a virtually unrivalled pedigree in its class. Background on the car has been extensively researched and it is believed that this car, chassis 22T1750 was constructed in the Riley Works Competition Department using the chassis from the 6 cylinder Works MPH Racer - KV9478. The evidence for this is the fact that the nearside dumb iron shows evidence of the reuse of the chassis: 22T1750 is stamped on the side with evidence of 44T2128 stamped on the top of the dumb iron. There is also evidence that appears to show where the MPH chassis had its brackets for the front axle radius arms removed showing that AVC 19 was built up from KV9478 using parts available at the time. The aforementioned MPH had competed in the 1934 Le Mans before being dismantled by the works in the summer of 1935 with AVC 19 (chassis number 22T1750 being registered by the Riley Works in May 1936). There is the most substantial and fully documented history of the car, which is available, under separate cover, for interested parties. We also have photograph albums, historic notes and invoices which can be inspected at The Garage. Robin Lawton Vintage & Classic Cars is delighted to have been involved and able to work closely with the restorer and owners who led the project.

1951 Lea-Francis 2.5 litre Sports - Rare & Desirable Another famous Coventry manufacturer with its origins in the cycle industry, Lea Francis was founded in 1895. Car production commenced in 1903 with motorcycles being manufactured from 1911. Originally the cars were built under licence for Singer but by 1919 they were to produce their own cars using proprietary components. Midway through the 1920s the sporting character of the marque was gaining strength with models such as the Ace of Spades and Hyper proving excellent and highly capable. The Hyper was the first supercharged British production car, powered by a 1.5 litre Meadows engine and in 1928 one such model was to win the Ulster TT. By 1937 the company was to be re-formed, with George Leek as chairman. Joining the new team were several ex Riley men, including Hugh Rose, who had designed the Riley 12/4 power unit. Two new cars of 12 and 14hp were introduced in 1937 and were to continue until 1939, when the works was to concentrate on manufacture for the war effort. Post war production began in 1946 and by 1950 the 18hp Saloon and a more powerful Sports model with the 2.5 litre engine appeared. A fine, well equipped car, in fact just 77 examples were built by the time production ceased in 1953. Offered here is a 1951 model that has come to us on behalf of its owner in Ireland. It has been in the current ownership for the past 15 years and has been the subject of extensive restoration with much of the work being carried out by Barrie Price of Lea Francis Cars. There are a number of photographs of the car in various stages of restoration plus much history and invoices etc. Full weather equipment includes a tonneau cover. A rare and desirable thoroughbred sports car, it is certainly attracts considerable interest whenever it is seen. The car is being offered for sale as the owner is reducing his collection. Rarely does this model become available. More photographs will follow - awaiting preparation. For initial enquiries please call on 01420-474919 or 07710-364945 Viewing by prior appointment please - with the lighter evenings we can be flexible around timings.

1959 Austin-Healey 100/6 (fitted with 3000 engine) The replacement for the original Austin-Healey 100, the new six cylinder 100/6 was to make its debut in 1956. Featuring a longer wheelbase than the previous model together with a more powerful engine this being a tuned version of the C Series unit as used in the Austin Westminster. In 1957 production was transferred from Longbridge to the MG plant at Abingdon and in total some 14,436 100/6 were produced before production ended in 1959 with the introduction of the 3000. This example was originally exported to North America and was manufactured in January 1959. It left the Works on the 24thof that month destined for Los Angeles according to the Heritage Certificate supplied. The car returned to the UK some 30 years ago and underwent extensive restoration including conversion to RHD. It has an engine from a later Austin-Healey 3000, which would appear to be fitted whilst the car was in the USA. Of good, smart appearance and driving very well, finished in Old English White and Red with red interior trim, this represents an opportunity to acquire one of these charismatic cars for a modest sum. There is a large file of paperwork together with an original workshop manual. Additional photographs will follow shortly. Here are just a few photos in the rain and a quick video!

1928 Austin 16/6 Five Seat Tourer The larger Austin motor cars of the 1920s were noted for their reliability and rugged qualities and it was these features that made them popular in the Antipodes, where often the roads were poor and conditions very demanding. Delivered new to Austin Distributors in Melbourne in chassis form, this 1928 Austin 16/6 was bodied by Holden with touring coachwork and purchased by its first owner in November of that year. Clearly he was very happy with his car as he was to retain it for the next 49 years, before the car was to pass to its second owner, Douglas Gore of Terang who acquired it in March 1977. During the 1980s an extensive restoration was undertaken by Mr Gore, which included the car being painted in its original livery of Austin Kingfisher Blue. All running gear, mechanicals and chassis were rebuilt and the car returned to the road in its former glory. In 2005 the Austin was to return to the UK and was to pass into the hands of the current owner. Known as Matilda the car is in good, sound order and pleasantly aged since the restoration. The 2 1/4 litre six cylinder engine runs smoothly and on the road the Austin gets into her stride well, making light work of hills. The hood and side screens are in good order and there is a large amount of paperwork and photos accompanying this characterful Vintage Austin, which has had very few owners in her 91 years.

1931 Riley Alpine 14/6 Fabric Saloon The six cylinder Riley models first appeared in 1929, with the engine being essentially a Nine with two additional cylinders . Initially the models catalogued included the Deauville, Stelvio and Alpine - the latter being available in both tourer and saloon versions, with the earlier saloons having fabric coachwork. The new models attracted much attention, with Sir Malcolm Campbell being highly impressed by the performance which he considered the equal to many cars of 20hp. We are pleased to offer here a splendid example of the Alpine saloon with fabric coachwork, this car having been the subject of restoration to a very high standard which was completed around 8 years ago. This included a full re-trim in light blue/grey hide, whilst the engine was rebuilt by marque expert Keith Pointing. 6000 miles have been covered since completion and this Alpine is a true joy to drive, with that feeling of power in reserve and a smooth 6 cylinder exhaust note. The original London registration number remains on the car and all fittings and interior furnishings are correct. Only a small number of this model are recorded with The Riley Register so it will certainly appeal to those seeking a rare and distinctive sporting saloon from this era. With its elegant shape and twin rear windows - a popular Riley styling feature at this period, this is a motor car with considerable character. There is a large file of bills and information are included. For initial enquiries and to arrange an appointment to view, please call us on 01420-474919 or 07710-364945

The MG P-Type was the replacement for the successful J2 Midget. Making its debut in 1934, the P-Type featured an improved engine with a 3 bearing crankshaft. The chassis was strengthened and was slightly longer than its predecessor. Two and Four seat models were available and also a streamlined 'Airline' Coupe model was featured in the catalogue. The 1930s was to see a rise in popularity of streamlined bodies as they were the pinnacle of modernity and fashion. These Airline bodies were designed and marketed by H W Allingham but were in fact built by both Whittingham & Mitchel and Carbodies. It is believed around 50 MGs were fitted with this Airline style coachwork, including a handful of the six-cylinder NA models. This delightful example, chassis number PA0837, was supplied new by T. Hawkins & Sons (Epsom) Limited and registered on the 13thDecember 1934. The car retains its original Surrey registration number. In the current ownership for the past 27 years, this MG has been the subject a major restoration from the bare chassis which has included a completely new ash body frame with many photographs on file showing the work in progress. The restoration was completed recently and the car is still to be run-in with little more than 100 miles being covered so far. With its charming cathedral style roof lights in the sliding head, this Airline Coupe bristles with period features and represents a very rare opportunity to acquire one of these highly sought-after MGs. The car is finished in its original livery of Oxford and Cambridge Blue, whilst the interior is trimmed in blue leather with leather bound matching carpets. A spreadsheet on file shows some £47,000 to have been spent on the restoration. The Original Instruction Manual is supplied along with a number of useful instructions and notes which should prove invaluable for the new owner to assist in the ongoing maintenance of the car and various bills dating back to the early 1970s.

1961 Jensen 541S - Very low mileage 1 of 20 Manual/Overdrive The ultimate development of the sleek and exclusive Jensen 541, the 'S' model featured a wider track which allowed for a considerably roomier cockpit and improved road holding. The revised frontal styling was given a more conventional slanting radiator grille and the specification included a Salisbury limited slip differential. Powered by a modified version of the 4 litre Austin DS5 straight six engine fitted with triple SU carburettors the 541S was amongst the highest performance GT cars of its era. This model was also notable for being the first British car to boast seatbelts as a standard fitment and another 'first' was the use of Dunlop disc brakes all round. A Motorola radio was also a standard fitment. Between 1960 and 1963 just 127 examples of the 541S were built and only 20 were fitted with manual transmission with overdrive - this car being one such. Finished in metallic red with its original deep red leather upholstery and with just 52,800 miles to its credit, this excellent and rare Jensen has had just three previous owners. It was off the road in storage between 1985 to 2016 and was then carefully recommissioned and a high quality repaint carried out. The overdrive unit has recently been reconditioned. A very rare opportunity to acquire a Jensen 541S with known history from new and such low recorded mileage. First registered in Surrey in May 1961, the car retains its original registration number and is offered with a large file of documentation plus the original and extremely rare instruction manual. Also included are several early service bills dating back to 1964. For more detailed photographs and a video please see our website.
