Hello there everyone! I'm looking for help please - I have an elderly friend who likes to reminisce (passionately!) about his very first car. It seems he bought a brand new Riley RMC in 1949 when he'd just turned 17... very lucky young man I'd say! I think the colour was called something like "Clipper Blue" but I'm not absolutely sure about that. Anyway, he's always regretted not keeping a photo of his prized possession - he went into the army for about 3 years, left the car with his mum & came home to find she'd sold it! I would really love to put a smile on his face by finding an accurate photo in the right colour to have printed off for him. If there's anyone out there who can help I'd be really grateful. Thank you.
I know of two people who own RMC's which are, I think, a close approximation to Clipper Blue. One is very, very, good, the other is very good. Unfortunately neither is a member of this club and so will not see your posting. If you can send me an e-mail address, I will see if I can find a way to assist.
