as Old as the Industry, as modern as the Hour
BMC Rileys
With the demise of the Pathfinder model, and so the prewar Big 4 engine in 1957, Riley effectively died as an independently minded car producer. Every model produced thereafter was a BMC badge-engineered special. The 2.6 (like the Pathfinder), 1.5 and Elf were all available as either Riley or Wolesley, while the A- and B-Series Farinas were produced with five or six different badges and corresponding engine/trim differences.
