HILLMAN Minx Series I-IIIc
Hillman’s new generation of family cars had smart and nicely-rounded styling, inspired by contemporary American trends. Sunbeam Rapiers and Singer Gazelles also used the same basic shell and body, but it was the Minx for the masses that was the big seller of course. With better performance and handling, plus more space inside, the Series cars were a significant step forward. Rootes fiddled with the formula almost every year; major changes included the 1390cc overhead valve engine rising to 1494cc with the Series III of 1958.
