Oxford Diecast Riley Elf MkIII Arianca Beige/pale Ivory

Product Code: 76RE001
19 reviews |
£8.45

The Riley Elf Mk I was launched in 1961 and was seen as an alternative to the Mini, which had been on the British motoring scene since 1959. Classed as a small car, it came with front wheel drive and a 4-cylinder in-line, 850 cc engine and a top speed of 70 mph. It was upgraded in 1963 to the Mk.II, when the engine size was increased to 988 cc and a top speed of 75 mph. Our Oxford model, a replica of the Mk.III Elf, was the same mechanically as the Mk I and II but came with some refinements  with inside door hinges (as did the Mk II)  and an improved suspension. A plus over the Mini was the Elf had a separate boot.

 Riley had been on the automotive scene since 1890 when, as a family business, they were successfully manufacturing bicycles before developing into motorcycles and then cars. The company was acquired by Morris Motors in 1938 under whose umbrella the Riley marque thrived until near the end of the 1960s when merged into British Leyland Motors in 1968. A year later, British Leyland announced the end of Riley production and the name disappeared sadly into the annals of motor history. 

Our model is a replica of the two door, four seater Riley Elf Mk III which was launched in 1966 and its registration plate KYD 29D is from that first year of production. It was quite stylish for its day with mushroom beige paintwork and a contrasting cream roof.  The interior dash is black but the seats are a lively bright red.  Exterior chrome work enhances the detailed radiator which carries the famous diamond shaped Riley badge in vibrant blue and silver. Additional silver trim has been applied to bumpers, door handles, light surrounds and wheels. To round off the model, the boot also incorporates the Riley badge above the rear number plate.

    Riley Elf

    I purchased this model because I used to drive an Elf which I bought because it was different from the regular mini. The detail is good. I don’t recall this colour. I am waiting for the next edition which I believe will be blue with a cream roof. It’s good that Oxford model cars that were different and not exactly main stream.

    Great little 60s car

    Will be ideal for my late 1960s era model railway layout, which I am building at the moment. Similar to the Wolseley Hornet which my dad used to own.

    Riley Elf

    A lovely model with good detail. However there are 3 x Elfs in the catalogue and no Wolseley Hornet which is what I have in real life and would like a model of it.

    Mini with a boot at last!

    Great. Very good swift service. So pleased to have a super little model of this (any chance of a Wolsey Hornet at 1:43 scale?). A lovely memento as I remember a trip as a boy round the banked curve at the Transport and Road Research Laboratory in one of these in the 60s or early 70s: it seemed very fast squashed in the back of a little Elf especially when I didn’t know to expect the banking!
