SOLD 1966 Riley Elf. MK2. 998cc. Florentine blue. White roof. Matching numbers. Lots of charm and ready to go.


We are very pleased to offer a fantastic and very rare 1966 Riley Elf MK2. This matching numbers example is finished in Florentine blue with a contrasting Old English white roof, and has been well preserved and cherished all its life and it has a character and charm that instantly grows on you, This is a MK2 Elf so it has many of the Mk1 Mini attributes such as sliding windows and external door hinges. Riley Elf’s are a fantastic proposition as a Mini variant as they offer the fun driving experience with a Baby Rolls Royce appeal and have classy looks. This Elf received a body refurb in 2013 and has been garaged and cared for since.

On the road this Elf drives very well. The original 998 engine has fantastic oil pressure and performs well, the gearbox is taught and precise and of course has the original magic wand gearstick. The Elf feels nice and taught and feels ready to be driven anywhere. The hydrolastic suspension offers a softer more comfortable ride but still retains the Minis handling characteristics. Driving this beautiful car is a real pleasure and it certainly gets lots of attention which is well deserved.

The interior is beautifully presented and has a very luxurious feel. The leather seats were retrimmed 8 years ago to a high standard and have settled well and a matching carpet set really set the interior off. The Walnut dash was also restored and it houses the centre speedo with oil pressure and water temp gauges, it also has its original steering wheel and dim dip switch on the floor. The boot is also fitted with its original boot board and the boot floor is body coloured and well presented.

As you would expect, this Elf has a very solid shell with gleaming paintwork and well presented chrome work and could easily sit proudly on display at any show or be the envy of all your friends and family. This is an Elf that is in good all round condition and is ready to be driven and enjoyed.

The Elf is fully serviced and has a long MOT and is also MOT and tax exempt. It has always been serviced and had regular MOTs.
