Riley car insurance
Riley began as a British automobile and bicycle manufacturer in 1890. Riley became part of the Nuffield Organisation in 1938 and then later merged into British Leyland. BMW owns the trademark today.
The first new model, the 17/30, was introduced at the London Motor show in 1913. Riley grew rapidly through the 1920s and 1930s. In February, 1938, Riley (Coventry) went bankrupt and was sold to Nuffield’s Morris Motor Company for £1. Numerous engines and cars were developed and built such as new Riley 4/Sixty-Eight saloon in 1959. Riley production was ended with the 1960s, and the marque was allowed to go dormant. BMW retains the rights to Triumph and Riley.
