HILLMAN MINX PHASE VIII/VIIIA

Saloon, convertible, Californian coupè, estate car.

Ohv at last, though not for Specials and estates till '56. Suspension revisions plus 15ins wheels; the latest square-dimensioned engine pushes top speed well into the 70s, though it's a trifle thirsty. Phase VIIIA 'Gay Look' (1956 de luxe line) with two-toning and more side chrome. Estate cars made well into 1957; saloons deleted mid-'56.
