1963 HILLMAN SUPER MINX mk2 EASY PROJECT,PLEASE READ For Sale
This car is now starting,running and moving under it,s own steam on it,s own fuel from the tank and has clutch and brakes and to save a storage issue i taxed and insured it claiming mot exemption,road legal lol,
This wonderfully original triple green car is still wearing most of it,s factory applied paint and excellent original interior.I say triple green as the interior is the original 2 tone in the correct Rootes leather grain material which i don,t think is re produced.Specified new with 4 speed floor change and 2 front seats not a bench.
I think Originally sold new in Peterborough where it stayed until 2006,then was registered in Epping for 5 months and lastly in Ongar, Essex .
It is a low owner/miles car used often until 2015 when the fuel pump failed and the owner who bought a new one and was sadly taken ill and passed on before he could fit it and the car has sat since.I have no doubt it needs little to be running and driving again,rolls freely and has a brake and clutch pedal still.if i get time i will fit the pump and give it a try.
As projects go this is the way to find them,A pair of outer sills and a small sheet of steel is all you will have to buy.There is no filled repairs whatsoever.
The car is remarkable in all the right places only requiring a few small repairs to the original panels.The very expensive and hard to find wings are very good mostly,front panel is perfect as are inner wings and scuttle/bulkhead.Doors are very good,one has a dent but no bubbling to skins,might be a couple of little spots on frame bottoms when cleaned off but not enough for the welder.Rear panel and boot floor perfect as are boot and bonnet and rear scuttle.
All the trim is with the car and the bumpers are perfectly straight.The car is watertight,been sat outside but dry inside.
The outer sills have been patched for mot [last in 2014] and it requires repairs to the very edge of floor to sill join,a couple of places on o/s and all along on the n/s where Essex lane Muck collects,inner sills look and feel strong.4 patches of wheel tub,1 on each corner right on the sweet spot where stones etc hit need new metal and thats about it.All welding required is in and around the sill area and panel repairs on the arches and very bottom of wing and rear quarter so all basically the same level and area of the car.
