I am selling this lovely Riley Elf for a friend who has gone into a nursing home. It is an early 1965 single carb
As an engineer and enthusiast he has lovingly restored this car with original metal parts (not filler) and   it has just passed its M. O. T and is taxed and insured ready to go. runs sweet as a nut!There is a small tear in one seat but otherewise mint condition.
Up until his illness two years ago he was driving the car daily. it has been stored in his garage since. During the two years it has been serviced at a local garage and prepared for M. O. T. twice but not completed as he could not drive due to his health.
It is garaged at Penmaenmawr North Wales and can be viewed before buying. ring 01492 460 375 Linda.
If you need any more details please message me through EBay or phone and I will find out what you need to know (never sold a car before!)open to sensible offers.

I have finally got the keys to my friends garage and have taken more pictures. I have more if there is anything specific you would like to see.


The mileage is 7950 and it is 4 seats not 5. The engine is 998ccThere is also a cover for the boot contents I presume it is the original . In the boot is a tin of the brown paint I presume is for touching up ???The inside is very clean and apart from the damage to the drivers seat the interior roof walls back seats are all intact and look good.  The bright red floor carpet is beautiful. There is a radio I didnt try it but can do if its important.
UPDATE:-hydraulics pumped up petrol oil etc renewed engine running no problems. Only done 50 miles since last M. O. T. !!!!Just been insured for £104. 00 needs NO road tax. Ready to drive away very cheap motoring 
GRAB A BARGAIN !!!!
