Riley - Riley Elf

The Riley Elf was the BMC Riley which was the "upmarket" better appointed version of the Mini, the Elf being introduced in 1961. The Elf body had a large boot at the rear which doubled the available boot space. Between 1961 and 1963 the engine was 848cc capacity, while for 1963 the Elf Mk2 was supplied with the 998 engine which was a detuned 998cc Cooper engine (giving 39 bhp compared to the Mini Coopers 56bhp). For 1966, the Elf Mk 3 stayed much the same but was refined further with wind up windows. These later cars can be spotted by having the hinges as part of the body, rather than stuck on the outside. Production of the Riley Elf finished in 1969.

Tyre size for a Riley Elf built between 1961 and 1969 was originally the cross ply 5.20x10 tyre size, the radial equivalent of which is the 145R10 size. Blockley produces the best 145R10 tyre with a period correct tread pattern and a high quality steel belted construction resulting in outstanding handling, which we sell at a very attractive price - see full details of this 145R10 tyre below:
