Chassis Numbers

Many of the specifications pages refer to Chassis Numbers for certain elements of the information. As a result I have felt it necessary to include a page to help decipher the Chassis Number of your car. In many cases, this will also allow you to identify the original engine and bodystyle that the car carried.
The 14/6 engine was the second major launch of the late 1920's. Essentially a 'nine' with an extra two cylinders, it provided Riley with a fresh range topping model. A range of coachbuilt bodies were offered initially, dominated by the Alpine Saloon (roughly a large Monaco). However, by the early 1930's, the range was looking more familiar, headed by the Kestrel and Lynx, alongside the Alpine.
