Lot 073: Riley Sprite Recreation

Classic Car, Motorcycle & Automobilia, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (24 June 2009)

From the Ivor Halbert Collection. This car was built by Ivor as a copy of his genuine Sprite, BOM 956, using what we believe to be a new chassis and a 1.5-litre Riley engine. Although this car is believed to be in excellent running order it has never been used on the road and, for safety's sake, will need a thorough inspection and shake-down before being pressed into use.
