RILEY - 15/6 PRODUCTION FIGURESas Old as the Industry, as modern as the Hour
Total Riley 15/6 ProductionRiley 15/6's were built from 1935 until 1938, although towards the end production was a mere trickle! Below are the number of Riley 15/6 Chassis that left the Factory each year, regardless of bodywork.

1935 figuresUnfortunately, the changeover to the 15/6 chassis was not a clean break in the 44T numbers, with some overlap between the 12/6 and 15/6 models, and even a few late 14/6 procuded too. The earliest 15/6 recorded is a Falcon, 44T2244 and the last of the smaller engined cars recorded is 44T2278, a 14/6 MPH (indeed most of the known cars in this block are MPHs, which could have had a variety of engines since first leaving the factory). Between them, 14 cars have been identified, split roughly a third to each engine, although biased slightly more to the 12/6 than the 14/6.
On the flip side, there are believed to have been around 30 15/6 Stelvios produced, using the 15S prefix and earlier chassis number range, as well as a handful of 15/6 Winchesters which used the 88E prefix and the same numbers (the single identified example being 88E1017).
Model by ModelAlthough no precise records remain, it is still possible to collate details of known cars, and so suggest total production figures for each 15/6 model.
Below is a list of how many of each body were probably built on the Riley 15/6 Chassis.
