1937 Riley Big 4 Supercharged ‘Blue Streak’ Special ***Prewar 2.5 Litre SC Engine***


Coming soon to Oldtimer Australia – 1937 Riley Big 4 Supercharged ‘Blue Streak’ Special.

This magnificent  Riley Special was built from an original Riley Kestrel that was delivered to New Zealand. The current owner purchased the car, which was in a very poor state, in New Zealand in 2004 and imported it into Australia. He engaged the services of highly regarded vintage car specialists Historic and Vintage Restorations (HVR) in Melbourne to build the car.

The project was a labour of love and the end result is ‘something special’ and a credit to all involved. Powered by the rare and desirable prewar two and half litre Riley engine fitted with a modern supercharger, this car is frighteningly fast. The hand craft aluminium body is a work of art, so much so the owner decided to leave the car unpainted which creates a very unique look.

This is not a small car and it has an incredible presence.

More information and photos to follow soon.

Price $299,950.
