The Riley Elf is based on the Mini but fitted with a larger boot to give it a more traditional look. It was also fitted with leather seats and walnut dash to make the interior more luxurious than a standard Mini and was aimed at the middle class professional who wanted to stand out from the crowd.
This example is a Mklll model with the concealed door hinges and it represents excellent value for money at £3350.
The car has an MOT until March 2018 and the 12 months Free Historic Road Tax can be arranged for the new owner if required. The recorded mileage is 13692 but this will not be correct.
It is remarkably solid underneath and is smart enough for everyday use but there is room for improvement of the bodywork and the seats.
If you want own and drive an inflation proof car that brings a smile to you and all who see her then this is an ideal good value classic car. Historic Road Tax is free and the cost of Classic Car Insurance is very low.
