HILLMAN VORTIC

Saloon, sports saloon.

Last ohv Hillman for nearly a quarter of a century and a bid to sell off their stock of straight-eight engines. This time they used a Humber chassis, body and four-speed silent third 'box with central change, though the Dewandre servo brakes are retained. Spot this one by the vertical-barred radiator (flat, not curved as o the later Wizard), while sports saloons are semi-panelled rather than of full-fabric type.
