1961-1967 HILLMAN Super Minx specifications

1961-1967 HILLMAN Super Minx specifications Classic and Performance Car

What had been planned to be the new Minx eventually appeared in 1961 as the Hillman Super Minx. As it was bigger, heavier and (therefore) more expensive, Rootes had decided to release it as a separate model, with ‘Super’ added to highlight its improvements over the standard Minx. The bodyshell kept the family resemblance, underneath the mechanicals were mainly Minx. As well as the saloon and estate, there was a rather becoming four-seater convertible from 1962 (now worth double saloon prices).
