Description Riley Elf Mk3 1969

Fun little Riley Elf Mk 3, one of only 112 registered in 1968. It originally belonged to my grandmother's neighbour, a sweet old lady who only used it for shopping. She sold it to us, and it then went to a Mini Cooper enthusiast uncle who added alloy wheels and flared wheel arches. Sadly he passed away and it's been stored in a barn ever since; the barn is no longer available hence we have to sell the car... 
It needs some work but is fundamentally sound - the hydrolastic suspension needs pumping up; the bodywork has the odd bit of rust, but nothing serious, the chrome is getting a bit spotty, and I daresay the battery and some hoses etc need replacing - nothing an enthusiast couldn't manage on successive weekends. As it is SORN it will need to be taken away on a trailer - the partially-deflated suspension means one side is a bit low, the battery is flat and a rear brake has seized. Otherwise, as far as I know, it's in reasonable mechanical order given its lack of use.
The engine is the original 1l A-series with twin carbs - not massively sporty, but adequate for the car.

I'll try to answer any questions as best I can, although I'm selling this on behalf of my aunt and haven't driven the car since I took it to the Mini 30th anniversary celebrations at Silverstone in 1989!

Cash on collection please.
