As a Riley enthusiast of 15 years’ standing who has owned ten of these “great little cars,” may I give a few additional aids to recognition.
First there was the introduction of the remote control gear-lever, with close-ratio box and the slightly sloping radiator, in 1933.
Secondly there was the. introduction of the fully coachbuilt body in 1934. The increase in weight to 19 3/4 cwt. was counteracted (to some extent) by dropping the back-axle ratio from 5.25 to 5.5-to-1. Another unique Riley Nine feature (1931-1934) was the choke, which was operated by pulling up the horn mounting in the centre of the steering wheel.
