HISTORY OF THE MOTOR CAR

Illustrated by Kenneth Rush

Described by Peter Hull

1927 RILEY NINE MONACO SALOON 1.1 LITRES (GB)

The Riley firm of Coventry originally made weaving machinery,
but Percy Riley (1883-1941), who built his first car shortly
after leaving King Henry VIII Grammar School was responsible
for the design of the 4 cylinder Riley 9 in 1926 with his
brother Stanley (1884-1952). The outstanding light car of
its day, the Riley 9 was remarkable for Percy Riley's
cylinder head with hemispherical combustion chambers, and
overhead valves , operated via pushrods by two high set
camshafts. The fabric body being light and rattle free was
popular in the late 1920's. A racing version of the Nine
called the Brooklands was developed by Parry Thomas and Reid
Railton.

HISTORY OF THE MOTOR CAR

1934 E.R.A. SUPERCHARGED 1.5 LITRES (G.B.)

E.R.A. Stood for English Racing Automobiles. 
Although Austin and M.G. built some
fine 750 c.c. racing cars in the 1930's,
the E.R.A.s scored the major British
victories at home and abroad in the 1.5 litre
 voiturette class in which their main rivals
were the Italian Maseratis.  The designer of
the E.R.A. was Peter Berthon (b. 1906),
who used a racing adaptation of the 6
cylinder Riley engine with a pre-selector
gearbox in a chassis which received
developement by Reid Railton.  Racing drivers
Raymond Mays and Humphrey Cook were
behind the E.R.A. project and Mays and Berthon
went on to build the B.R.M. after the war.

1930 Riley (Great Britain)


In the 1930's the small sporting saloon was a British preserve,
pioneered by the Riley Monaco Nine announced in 1928. An advanced
1,000cc 4-cylinder overhead-valve engine, a 4 speed gearbox,
and cable operated 4-wheel brakes were features; the body typified
the period with high waistline, fabric covering and pneumatic
upholstery.
For £298, buyers got a respectable 65mph, while
competition versions did very well, victories including the
1932 TT. No wonder over 25,000 Nines had been made by 1934. The model
was still being made four years later.

Riley Two Litre Racing Model.

Racing Rileys had many successes on road and track in 1935, to
which both the factory team and the redoubtable Freddie Dixon , with
his independently prepared cars, contributed.
Three of the two litre models, headed by Dixon were first, second and third in the
B.R.D.C. Empire Trophy Race, while in the 500 Mile Race in October one of the
official cars with the new racing body (as illustrated) was second. It lapped
Brooklands consistently at more than 120 m.p.h. The unsupercharged, six cylinder
engine is of 6.35mm bore, 104.5mm stroke and 1,986 c.c. capacity.
The 1 1/2 litre racer (this model won the 1935 Ulster T.T. Race) has a four cylinder
engine of 69mm bore, 100mm stroke and 1,496 c.c. capacity.

RILEY.
Since the days of motor cars there has always been
a Riley Car, which explains the manufactures' slogan
"As Old as the Industry."
The Eleven Riley deservedly occupies a high place
among British light cars by reason of its road
performance, economy, comfort and appearance. In
the Scottish Six Days 1,000 Miles Trials (the most important
in this country since the War) the Eleven Riley gained high
marks and a gold medal.
