I've read, in the last issue of the french magazine "l'aventure automobile" about the post-war Rileys, that one convertible RM 2 1/2 litre was built by the Australian coachbuilder Head Bros, in 1950 for a Mr. Robert Hood, who designed it himself.
Hello there. My name is Roger, I hate the pseudonyms we are landed with.
I cannot find any reference to this car in any of the books which I have. Would it be possible to send me a copy of the magazine? My partner is French and will be able to translate for me. If I can find out anything about the car, I will let you know.
You can contact me by e-mail; email@example.com and I will send you my address.
