Known today for their sporty and innovative pre-war cars, the Riley Company originated at the end of the 1800s. In the middle of the automotive world’s industrial revolution, Riley made a reputation for itself as the manufacturer of stunning cars with impressive performance capabilities which culminated in 1934 with 2nd and 3rd place finishes at Le Mans. This reputation may have originated long ago but it still holds true today with the very few surviving examples. This is specifically true with the 1934 Riley MPH Sports Two Seater. It is estimated that just over 16 of these stunning pre-war cars were made, making them a rare sight for the day and even rarer for today.
This 1934 Riley MPH Roadster that is currently listed for sale on Bonhams is a prime example of what the Riley Company cars were all about. Under the car of Willem van Huystee of Lancaster, PA, the car was last shown at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance where it won Best In Class-Sports and GT Cars Pre-War. Prior to its current ownership, it was family-owned for 65-years. A comprehensive restoration has been performed by DL George and Leydon Restorations.
