1934 Hillman aero minx tourer, restored 2019 For Sale

1934 hillman aero minx tourer, thought to be one of about 30 tourers surviving world wide, not all of these are on the road. I and professionals restored this car as a project from 2018 to july 2019 when it was returned to the road. In my research i believe this is the only newly restored tourer that has come up for sale, consequently there is no history of values, only for cars in need of restoration. Described as "the forgotten sports car" in a 1983 magazine article was one of the first "soft" sports cars and was a rival of singer, mg, wolseley etc. Aero tourers featured in period motor sport and were adopted by some police forces. 1934 aero's have steel wings, front and rear panels and the tub and doors are hardwood clad in aluminium. The bonnets are aluminium. The engine is a 1185cc side valve mated to a 4 speed "crash" gearbox. Steering is marles and the brakes are bendix cable operated. In size about the same as my mg tc but shorter wheel base and higher in the scuttle. The car was stripped for restoration and repainted in brooklands green by a bodyshop ready for re assembly. A brief summary of the work included specialist welding repairs made to the aluminium bonnets and to re attach a hinge strip, fill holes and cracks. The petrol tank was stripped internally and externally and welding repairs were made then painted inside and out and fitted with new sender. The screen frame needed the central wiper motor bracket making as well as new stainless top corner pieces for the hood attachment, then rechromed and new glass fitted. The engine did not need work and i was advised by the previous owner it had been recently rebuilt. A new belt and fan, leads, coil, rotor, condenser were fitted and all hoses replaced. A bespoke stainless exhaust system was made by specialist. The gearbox rear bracket was absent so one was fabricated, a speedometer bush to gearbox was machined, new cable fitted and the speedometer recalibrated. The gearbox went off to a specialist for inspection and new bearings new clutch fitted. The accelerator and clutch pedals were rebushed. All bright work was repaired and replated or replaced with new, the radiator shell is made of steel on these cars and needed the bottom one third completely remaking as had rotted through, a new grille was fitted. The aero and minx badges were bespoke made from brass and plated. Wheels were stripped and one needed extensive welding to the inside rim, then all were powder coated and fitted with new tubes and tyres. The interior was retrimmed, new carpets, front seat belts fitted. A new loom was installed with a new battery and leads.
