1967 Riley Elf

1967 Riley Elf

Riley was a British motorcar and bicycle manufacturer from 1890. Riley became part of the Nuffield Organisation in 1938 and was merged into the British Leyland Motor Corporation in 1968. ln July 1969 British Leyland announced the immediate end of Riley production, although 1969 was a difficult year for the UK auto industry and cars from Riley’s inventory may have been first registered in 1970.The early 1960s saw the introduction of the Mini-based Riley Elf a Wolseley model (the Hornet) was introduced simultaneously. This time, the Riley and Wolseley versions were differentiated visually by their grilles but identical mechanically. The Riley was always considered to be better finished and a superior car than the Wolseley depending on which camp you were in.

This car is a lovely original unmolested example which is very hard to find these days. Originality with a little patina is something that our clients are now searching for. This is a car that must be seen to be appreciated. Believed to be original 70,000 Miles.
