 Lansdowne (1:43 cars) The Riley 1.5 and its slightly more staid cousin, the Wolseley 1500, appeared in 1957, giving both marques a much-needed presence in the small luxury car market. The 1500 concept had its beginnings in 1951 with a proposed restyle of the Morris Minor. Due to healthy sales of the original Minor design the restyle was shelved but the project continued until the decision was made to use the BMC 'B' series engine, move the car upmarket and provide two separate versions. Although underpinnings had their origins in the Minor, other parts came from the BMC stores and all was clothed with newly designed bodywork. The Riley was intended as a small sports saloon and was a sprightly performer. It was a fairly common sight in saloon car racing over a number of years.
