Riley 11.9 Saloon Landaulette (1925-27)

The Laundaulette was another body type which found favour in the 1920s, but soon went out of fashion. It was a fully enclosed saloon except for the section of roof over the rear seat, which was canvas and could be folded down for open air motoring. Again, it seems that this model was aimed at the chauffer driven market.
