Riley 12/6 Mentone. (1933-34)

The Riley 12/6 Mentone was effectively a scaled down Alpine body fitted to the new chassis. It could equally be viewed as a scaled-up Monaco. By this stage, the bodys were all metal, and much more standardised than previously, nevertheless, the Mentone was never a great seller and was phased out before the end of the 12/6 range.
