Riley 14/6 Winchester. (1933)

The Winchester was available as either a Saloon, or Limosuine. It was initially, briefly, known as the Family Saloon. Unfortunately, for our purposes, it shared the 88E chassis designation with the Edinburgh model, and in the available pictures, there appear to be few differences between the two models. None are known to survive, but all but one of those 88E's that have been identified from old records are Winchester, rather than Edinburgh models. As with the Edinburgh, the Limosuine model, which was dropped after less than a year, had a glass divider and more luxurious rear seats.
The Winchester seems to have struggled on, though, with a single Winchester 15/6 having been identified, suggesting a handful were produced with the larger engine. Due to the chassis numbers being taken in sequence with the 14x series, it is now difficult to suggest how many were built, but it was probably only a couple of dozen.
