Riley Ascot . .A 2-seater drophead coupe with dickey seat..
The Riley Ascot was fully launched in late 1931 sold as a 2-seater drophead coupe using the nine engine with dickey seat. (From an elderly user of dickey seats. . . . . useful for things from market if tied down and slowed down on all corners but not so good if a child in north Lancs moors as you had to find something to hang on to most corners or you were thrown out. Apparently their grandma drove like a hooligan with cup hooks on the doors upper cills and a strap to hold doors closed or the body flexed and they opened.)
Early sales used the nine chassis, and later on the wider less agile 6-cylinder chassis. Another of Riley's many many models at this time with smaller sales compared to the later Riley Lynx and Riley Gamecock Also available as the ‘Plus Ultra’ with a dropped chassis frame that enabled occupants to be seated within the wheelbase, with the benefit of a smoother ride, comfort and handling, while increasing interior space and improving access.
