1964 Riley Elf


1964 Riley Elf.

The Doherty Collection

One of Six vehicles which we have asked to find new homes for from the same collection.

These will be offered at approximately 1:30pm ~ 2:00pm with any provisional bids gaining answers as soon as possible.

This Riley was owned by the first keeper for 20 years. It's then understood the Riley was left in a garage as an abandoned restoration project for the next 23 years.

The car was then purchased by the second keeper in 2005 who set about a full refurbishment of the bodywork and interior, he also decided to update the mechanics of the Riley with later mini running gear. The list of upgrades completed at the time is listed below.

  • Uprated brake servo
  • Modern A+ 998cc Engine
  • New interior
  • New electrics
  • Modern dashboard
  • 12' Alloy Minilte style wheels
  • Big bore exhaust
  • Modern stereo system

    The Riley comes with a collection of invoices, original handbook, a selection of MOT test certificates from the 1980's, and a photographic record of the restoration work completed.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles. 

So, if you have a vehicle which you would like us to re-home.... just make the call. 01751 474455
