1965 Hillman Super Minx Estate - NO RESERVE

The car is a rock solid example of a very rare wagon, it starts, runs, drives and stops and would take little to certify mechanically. Being a Hillman the mechanical parts are easy to come by as they are, for the most part, common to the Sunbeam Alpine.The Super Minx was made at the same time they made the Hillman Husky and the Sunbeam Alpines and Tigers. This car originally came out of the Washington D.C area. It still has a Dealer Sticker from Bethesda Maryland on the tailgate.

The engine is in excellent condition and runs well. It’s recently had a full tune-up including plugs, points, condenser, distributor cap and wires. The fuel tank has been removed, cleaned, relined and repainted. With the fresh tank came all new fuel lines and a carburetor rebuild. The brakes were fully serviced with new wheel cylinders and new shoes in the back and new rotors and calipers in the front. The brake master cylinder was rebuilt. The tires were replaced and the wheels were repainted. The drive shaft was recently refurbished with new universal joints, transmission end-stock seal and yoke and rear end seal. The hydraulic clutch system was rebuilt with a new clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder. It needs an emergency brake handle and some electrics need sorting but the headlights, etc, all work. Generator doesn’t and tail lights still need sorting out. Probably bulbs like the front. The interior dome light works when the door is opened!

The interior is completely original and in remarkable condition. There is a cut in the driver’s seat. The pictures show the interior faults quite well. The seats will need re-padding and it needs a very good cleaning. The roof lining is quite serviceable. There are lots of pictures in the link.

Mostly, the car needs paint and a bit of bodywork, the paint is original. Clear coat it and give it the ‘rat’ look if you like. There’s virtually no rust underneath and no holes in the floors. The rockers had been replaced when I got it. Most of what needs to be done is bodywork on the right rear passenger door which looks to have been hit along the front edge and the dog leg at that door still needs work. The right front fender has some minor body damage from a bump. One of the hinges on the bottom tail-gate, right side, needs a weld repair.

The exhaust leaks badly but you’ll see a picture of a complete NOS exhaust system which comes with the car. I also have spare glass for both rear side windows and the rear tail-gate window. The existing windows are fine, it just came with spares! All the rest of the glass is good and the windows all work. The widow rubber is passable, excepting the windshield but a new one is included. Any apparently missing or damaged side trim has been replaced and comes with the car.

The car is located in Brampton Ontario Canada, a one hour drive to Niagara Falls NY or Buffalo, I have a valid Ontario title, importation into the US is not an issue with cars this old, talk to your US customs people or visit the website for confirmation.

Here’s a link to about 75 pictures:

I’ll include a service manual and a variety of parts including the new rubber gasket for the windshield. If you find that it's missing something and I have in my stock, you can have it, no charge, if you just pay for the shipping. Beyond that, I'm here for advice, if you need it.
