Originally envisaged as a Morris Minor replacement, the Riley One‑Point‑Five and Wolseley 1500 range instead emerged as small but stylish sports saloons. They were produced from 1957 to 1965 and utilised the Morris Minor floorpan, suspension and steering but with the larger 1,489cc B‑Series engine and MG Magnette gearbox. It is believed that less than 40 Riley One‑Point‑Fives remain on the road today.

This example was registered in April 1960 and has had nine previous registered keepers from new. The odometer records around 71,000 miles from new.

The vendor tells us that many new parts have been fitted in the last year including a fuel pump, head gasket, track rod ends, universal joints, thermostat, washer motor, rear brake shoes and more. It has also been changed to negative earth.

The extensive history folder and includes the current and past V5Cs, plus a large stack on invoices dating back to the 1990s. These include a new carpet set in 2017 (£222.99) two new tyres in November 2017 and a full respray in April 2018 (£1800). Two sheets of paper have hand‑written notes also list parts fitted over 2016, 2017 and 2021. There's also a print‑out of past information from the DVLA and MoT certificates from 1995, 1997 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. A genuine ring‑bound BMC workshop manual is a very useful inclusion as well.
