Riley 14/6 Alpine Saloon. (1933-34)

After starting life as the light-six saloon, the Alpine was now into its fifth year of production. For 1933 another new body was offered, however, replacing both the Fabric and Half-panelled bodies. The new model remained a larger version of the (revised) Monaco, with the 12/6 Mentone sharing the same general style.
Despite the last of the original '14L' 14/6 chassis known to have been produced sporting an Alpine body, and registered as later as 1935, it was becoming a little outdated, and the best seller was soon to become the Kestrel model. It survived to the end largely because the Falcon body was never officially offered on the 14/6 chassis, leaving the void of a 'standard 5-seater saloon' to be filled by the Alpine. It was, however, replaced by the 15/6 Falcon!
