First time on the open market in 55 years-and with just 27,000 recorded miles, we are pleased to be able to offer this splendid Hillman Minx Series 3c in that lovely pastel green with oatmeal upholstery, a combination that works so well together.
This one has the full length front bench seat with floor gear change
First sold new in May 1962 it then changed hands again one year later in May 1963 to Mr Rookard who retained the car up until 1990.
The car was then sold as part of his estate by the executors in a sealed bid envelope type of auction, and won by a main dealer garage proprietor. He retained the car but not registering it in his name, it would occasionally be used as a showroom exhibit (not for sale) but spent most of its years tucked up in bed in his own private garage. He did manage to put around 800miles on the clock in the first few years of ownership ‘odd local show etc’ evidence of four old mot cert’s, but after that it was just a case of keeping the car up and running with a little maintenance thrown in when required.
Naturally having the car squirreled away for all this time has played a big part in the lovely unrestored and well preserved condition we find it in today. The doors virtually close shut with your breath, panels all straight with a beautiful fit all round, upholstery is again a testimony to the mileage, and the underside shows no signs of rot or past repairs. Chrome still sparkles well but door handles are a little pitted if one wanted to be really picky.
These curvy Hillmans are very easy on the eye and a real flash back to the 50s, that charming wrap round rear windscreen and the centre instrument panel looks like it was just removed from an aircraft. We have the original owners manual, BP service/ lubrication from Levittown garage in Cambridge, few old mots and the original brown buff log book along with Mr Rs driving licence from 1949. Front seat belts appear to have been installed from day one and the tool kit along with the spare wheel are all concealed in the boot.
