Models of Yesteryear Y-3/3; 1934 Riley MPH

Models of Yesteryear

This extremely good looking car with its flared mudwings and convex tail which held little more than a spare wheel is a particular favourite amongst Riley enthusiasts. The car with its 6 cylinder 1500cc engine which Riley introduced in 1933 could reach a genuine 85mph plus and handled beautifully into the bargain.

The 1934 Riley MPH Y-3/3 was produced from 1974 to 1979 in 1:35 scale. It is seen in both dark purple and shades of red from light to rich ruby red. There is also a blue version. Most of them are very common and fetch no premium, however if you have a dark purple one with black seats and grille or a ruby red one also with black seats and grille you have a rare and expensive one. Also look out for 12 spoke wheels.
