DESCRIPTION
The Hillman Minx was produced from 1931-1970 and, not surprisingly, underwent many changes in this time. The "Audax" Design Minx that is most commonly associated with classic motoring today is perhaps the collection of Series I to Series VI models produced from 1956 to 1967.

It is understood that the Super Minx launched in 1961 alongside these aforementioned models, as a more esteemed and subsequently costlier alternative. The Saloon variant reigned for seven years and across four different marks, the first three of which were powered by a 1, 592cc engine and the last by a 1, 725cc unit. Aimed at the top end of the family car market, the Super Minx was more sizeable than the standard Minx and featured more ornate detailing. A 1962 example tested by Motor found the car to have a top speed of 80mph and a 0-60mph time of 21. 6 seconds.

Amazingly, the Hillman Superminx Convertible offered today has been under single ownership from 1963 until 2017 as a company car by a manager at the internationally renowned Harrods, London. In addition to this, many service documents and MOTs are still present.

The vehicle underwent an extensive bare metal restoration from 2017 to 2018 before being used by the BBC on "Antiques Roadshow", covering over 1, 000 miles in this time. Thousands has been spent in recent years to bring this car to a high standard both mechanically and cosmetically including a motor rebuild, refurbished brakes, carburettor and alternator to ensure years of trouble free motoring.

This car can be viewed from its time in the limelight in January 2020 on Series 20, episodes 11 to 15 if any are in doubt of its roadworthiness! This is simply a rare and charming classic with interesting two owner provenance and the paperwork to support this.
