1959 Hillman Minx Series IIIA 1.5 4 cylinder petrol OHV from Australia and New Zealand

Summary:

Roomy, nippy, easy to drive and classic not plastic

Faults:

Only things wrong with the car are the fact that it doesn't have an engine number because it was built before 1960, so if you buy one that's unregistered, the authorities try screw you around when you re register it in your own name.

Some spare parts can be hard to come across.

General Comments:

Roomy inside.

Handles good for its age once you put modern tyres on it (and/or polyurethane bushes).

At the moment you can pick good ones up for low low prices.

Slips through traffic easily, narrower than most modern cars.

You never lose one in a car park.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
