1969 Riley Elf Mk. Iii, Like Original Mini, Rhd, Very Rare In The Usa on 2040-cars

Year:1969 Mileage:69239

Falls Church, Virginia, United States

Falls Church, Virginia, United States

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.

Road & Track names its 2013 Performance Car of the Year

Thu, 14 Nov 2013 19:13:00 EST

Road & Track recently staged its first annual Performance Car of the Year test, pitting 13 new and updated performance cars against each other on track, then graduating the top six to a road test before picking a winner. Additionally, the magazine staff picked the best automobiles of the year in eight categories.
But first, let's cover the PCotY segment. Here's the list of cars brought to the comparison test: Audi R8 V10 Plus; BMW 435i; BMW M6 Competition Package; Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51; Ferrari F12 Berlinetta; Ford Fiesta ST; Jaguar F-Type V8 S; Jaguar XFR-S; Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model Wagon; Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series; Mini John Cooper Works GP; Nissan GT-R Track Edition; and Porsche Cayman S.
To find out the results of the comparison, head over to Road & Track's website or check the press release below, where you'll also find the magazine's top-rated vehicles in eight categories. Want more? Head over to the 2013 PCotY hub. But before you do that, take a stab at guessing the winner of PCotY (we'll give you one hint: it isn't a Porsche).

2013 Mini John Cooper Works

Back in February, Mini invited me to come try out its brand-new Paceman coupe-crossover-hatchback thing in Puerto Rico, and not long after, I spit out a Quick Spin detailing my impressions of the little-big two-door. But here's what I didn't tell you: Mini also let me loose on those fine, curvaceous, tropical roads in its hottest hatch, the John Cooper Works GP. And while that behind-the-wheel gigglefest would have no doubt made for a story laden with positive notes and warm regards, the truth is, I only drove it for 15 minutes, so I couldn't in good conscience offer much of a story to you. (European Editor Matt Davis also got a short stint behind the wheel of the GP late last year.)
So for the sake of due diligence, I buckled down and spent a full eight days with the JCW GP back home in Detroit, just as springtime was starting to stick here in southeast Michigan. But after my time with the Mini, I was wishing that I could have just been left with my GP memories from Puerto Rico, where I was pushing the little hotbox hard around smooth corners and flexing every one of its muscles to eke out the full JCW GP experience in only a short timeframe.

2014 Mini Cooper goes to the dogs

Tue, 17 Dec 2013 16:58:00 EST

We wouldn't buy a car to make a dog happy, but Mini's latest commercial, Bullheaded, would have you believe that dogs like the new 2014 Cooper as much as humans. Regardless of the commercial's target audience (Spike The Bulldog, or his owner?), it does show a couple new tidbits about the car, such as the new center dial touchscreen, ambient lighting and the nifty tinted pop-up display on top of the dashboard that reminds us of the head-up display on the new Mazda3.
Head below to watch Spike and his owner drive the Mini in Downtown Los Angeles (and the back lots of Paramount), and to get a behind-the-scenes look at how the commercial was made.
