Riley 12/6 Lincock. (1933)

The Lincock Fixed Head Coupe was one of the rarer bodies fitted to the 12/6 chassis. As with the Trinity and March, it was based on that offered on the Nine, although as it was also available on the 14/6 chassis, it seems to have been more of a success, with 2 or 3 dozen being produced. It was, at the time, a stylish low-slung 2-seater coupe, and with the Riley badge on the front, it's a surprise that it was only offered for a single year, although maybe this should suggest that production figures are towards the lower end of the proposed range!
