both my wife's and the one in the third picture are considered BRG.... but as you can see they are not the same. I believe the third one is from the 60's.

My father had some cool British cars over the years.

A couple Austin Healey 3000s
Jag Mk VII saloon
Jag 120
Bentley sedan

Gave me my love for the smell of leather and horse hair...
1979 GL1000
2001 DRZ400
1983 CR480
And a few late '60's - early '70's British thumpers

my father has 2 of these.
His first car when he and my mother got married was a brand new one and of all the cars he's owned this was the one he talked about all the time.
He found on locally 20+ years ago and bought it. It needs a lot of tlc.
He then found another one that is complete with a rough body in Alberta. He and my mom drove out and towed it home.
A few years alter he and I went to Niagara Falls and he bought 4 doors, a trunk, a hood, grill and a few other small parts..all NOS from a gentleman that owned a riley repair shop back in the 60's.
That is as far as we've got with them though. :(
