The Riley One-Point-Five and similar Wolseley 1500 are automobiles which were produced by Riley and Wolseley respectively from 1957 to 1965. They utilised the Morris Minor floorpan, suspension and steering but were fitted with the larger 1,489Â cc (90.9Â cuÂ in) B-Series engine and MG Magnette gearbox. The two models were differentiated by nearly 20Â hp (15Â kW), the Riley having twin SU carburettors giving it the more power at 68Â hp (50Â kW). The Wolseley was released in April 1957 and the Riley was launched in November, directly after the 1957 London Motor Show.
