Riley 4 Seventy Two 1967 Rear three quarter view

The final derivative of the mid-sized Riley saloons appeared in 1961 as part of the revised A60/Farina range, the new car was known as the 4/72. The 4/72 inherited the revised, B-Series, 1622cc engine which as before had twin carbs and was shared with the equivalent MG Magnette.

Unlike the rest of the Farina saloons the Riley and MG versions appeared unchanged and carried on with the unique rear wing styling which featured "cut-back" fins. The only body modifications were alterations in the wheelbase and from and rear tracks. Oddly the Riley 4/72 outlived the MG Magnette by a year. Production ended in 1969 after 14,000 cars had been built.
