Lot 1964

Description:

1956 Hillman Minx Series 1
Reg. no. 433 KHX
Chassis no. t.b.a.
Engine no. t.b.a.
The Series 1 Minx was announced in May 1956 and it then went though a succession of facelifts each being given a series number, replacing the mark number used on previous Minxes. This two tone lilac grey over storm grey car was first registered in Middlesex in late 1956 and supplied new to a Mr Phipps. Ownership passed to his son in 1980, following which some restoration was carried out, including a lower half respray and some new brightwork. The car did not return to the road until this year, and it has a genuine 45,000 miles recorded. Recent recommissioning work includes a brake overhaul, a new radiator and hoses, a new water pump, a reconditioned dynamo and a new voltage regulator. The interior is in very good condition and a new set of carpets are fitted. Overall this is a nice and largely unrestored example and our vendor states that there is no sign of rust. Examples of an early Minx in this condition are extremely hard to find, and a workshop manual and a factory parts catalogue are included in the file, as is a V5c.
