HILLMAN MINX PHASE I

Saloon, drophead coupè, estate car.

First unitary Minx and first with alligator bonnet; in production in early war years for services and essential occupations. Semi-elliptic springs, floor change, and Bendix brakes - will do 65mph but handling poor. Nasty 'twin-trim' upholstery, but sliding roofs on saloons. Estate cars van-derived, and Commer-badged.
