1968 Riley Elf - RHD, But Nice

Last week I posted a left-hand drive Riley Elf. I posted it only because it was LHD. Other than that it wasn't really a great car.

This is a very nice Riley Elf. It's RHD, but it's in nice shape, has Minilites on it and the correct wooden dash.

I don't like back end of the Elf (with the trunk) as much as the back end of a Mini, but I think the more formal nose looks great.

I would never encourage anyone to take apart two old classic cars that are in good condition, but the idea of finding a Mini that needs a nose and an Elf that's been hit in the rear and putting the two together is intriguing...

This car is located in Piqua, OH. Click here to see the Craigslist ad.

A big thanks to Jon for sending me the link to this car.

I had no idea what an Elf was until I saw one last month at Laguna Seca (scroll down):
