The DAILY EXPRESS reports on the demise of Riley.
Mr George Turnbull managing director of the Austin -Morris division, said: “We are not contemplating taking action with any other marques in the foreseeable future… The decision to drop the Riley marque has not been taken lightly and is based on sound economic and business considerations.
Very few Riley cars are exported and the substitution of export marques will help our overall effort, and assist us to achieve maximum effectiveness as a car-producer.”
