Description

You are bidding on a 1969 Riley Elf Mark III.
I bought the car to restore, but have something else coming in that I am more interested in, and am going to put my efforts towards that.
The car ran and drove last year. Currently does not run, I pulled the gas tank out for cleaning, and was going to do the floor pans, but now I need the space.
The car has rust in many spots- fenders, rockers, floor pans, doors, trunk. The car is not so rusty that it can't be restored. It comes with new floor pans, and just a few other odds and ends (no other major sheet metal or anything)
Has a clear Maryland Title listing the car as a 1969 Austin 2 Door. There are a TON of maintenance records from the previous US owner, who obviously had the car on the road as a regular driver, and paid $7,000+ in maintenance, engine rebuild, new clutch/brake cylinders, etc etc. Those receipts are mostly from the early 2000s.
Really, mechanically I think the car wouldn't need much. If I were keeping it, I'd probably be more focused on the floor pan replacement/ rust repair that this car needs. Mechanically, I don't think it needs too terribly much, just needs to be gone through, probably a battery, a carb re-build, cooling system flush, maybe replacing a couple dried-our rubber parts, etc.. to get it where it could be a decent little weekend driver.
Car may be viewed/ picked-up by winning bidder in Falls Church, VA.
