Engineer here, that was highly appreciated. Where did you find this awesome image? Doesn't seem like the sort of thing that goes in your average press kit.

Yeah but if you rejuvenate the plastic then the chrome will start to show its age. Then you fix that and the milky windshield edges will look bad. It's a rabbit hole, my friend. We should just call...

Unfortunately it was spotted by a friend. I already asked if she could go back and take a closer look, no dice.

But 1954 Riley RME certainly seems like it! Thanks a ton!
