What the heck?! (Mini Raleigh 3 speed)

My neighbor (the proverbial sweet little old lady) is looking to sell this. She was hoping I would buy it since I "like bikes." It is way too small for me. The seat to ground height is only 33 inches with a full pedal extension of only 30 inches. 26 inch wheel size. Serial number stamped on the seat lug. No model designation on it any where that I can find. No date or information on the hub either.

What is it? What is it worth? Is it two Raleighs stuck together? It looks like the fenders and chain guard were stuck on afterward and someone tried to paint the head tube to make it match better.

Looks original and not pieced together to me.
It's a Raleigh Colt.

Thanks! Once I knew what name to search for, research got a lot easier.
