Mr Old spotted this Hillman parked in a street, took an instant liking to the model, left a note under the wiper blade for the owner to contact him and the next day, it was his. That spur of the moment decision some fifty years ago eventually became a canny purchase as the Series I Minx is a rare and desirable model in the twenty-first century. We are informed that it is generally in good, original order; there is some deterioration to the chromework and a little minor bubbling to a couple of panels. The tyres are in good condition and the original upholstery is very good; the parcel shelf could be improved and stitching needs attention on the right hand side rear seat, but really, we are being too critical because this Minx has survived exceptionally well and has clearly been maintained to a high standard by its professional owner.

The V5C registration certificate is supplied, together with other paperwork.
