BMC Riley Kestrel

This is a British Motor Cars Riley Kestrel as seen at a Florida car show in March 2013.

According to the information on the car, it has a hydrolastic suspension, the engine went in sideways to provide more passenger room (5 people) and it’s easily maneuverable.  It also has front wheel drive, twin carbs and disc brakes.  The interior was made of polished walnut, the contoured seats were made with real leather.

I don’t have a year on the vehicle I am guessing probably somewhere in the mid 60’s like 1965 or 1966.  According to Wikipedia the model was produced from 1965 t0 1969.
