1966-1977 HILLMAN Minx/Hunter specifications

1966-1977 HILLMAN Minx/Hunter specifications Classic and Performance Car

Hillman turned its back on the past with the Hunter. The angular looks were penned with the help of noted stylist William Towns and were neat but hardly stirred the blood. The 1725cc engine was the only real link with Rootes history and, with MacPherson strut front suspension, front disc brakes and overdrive, the Hunter gave a good account of itself. The Minx variant was more downmarket, with a 1496cc engine, but the old name disappeared in 1970. The Hunter soldiered on, largely unloved, with the 88bhp GT and 93bhp GLSs its most exhilarating versions.
