My stunning 1968 Riley Elf Mk3. Getting rarer by the year. The upmarket Mini variant. I believe I am the 3rd owner. the 2nd being a friends mum for 30 odd years. I rescued the little gem from ruin and went for a full restoration. The Elf has featured in Mini Magazine a few years back and was one of the finalists for Mini of The Year. Full body restoration 3 years ago so there is no rust . Resprayed in the old Jaguar colour. opalescant silver sand (close to champagne gold) and I believe it is the only one in this stunning colour. Now fitted with a 1275cc engine rebored to 1298cc. Twin carbs. duplex timing chain. big bore exhaust. Sits on 10" Cooper S Yokohamas. and silver minilites with Cooper S front disc brakes. Runs like a dream and makes a wonderful sound. All chrome trim is original and is in good condition for its age. The rear bumper is missing its overiders and is slightly pitted as are the rear tail lights. Also fitted with front and rear fog lamps and bullet wing mirrors. Nearly all of the seals have been replaced but the fabric seals for the doors wind down windows will need replacing at some point. Interior: All seats are original oxblood leather. Small tear on top of drivers seat and the stitching has come slightly undone on the top middle of the rear seat. otherwise great condition. Easily fixed. The walnut dash is also original. the carpets. roof lining. and sun visors are new. The speedo is now a Cooper S 130mph with roughly 6000 on the clock since restoration. Additional rev counter ( i still have the right walnut glove box door should you wish to put back). Astrali steering wheel (one part of stitching slightly undone) Cooper S accelerator pedal. and lowered steering column bracket plus Ipod stereo He is a real head turner is this dynamic colour giving him a real upmarket racey look. A little more spent on him and you have a real beauty on your hands. All paperwork is up todate.
