A new Hillman Imp made from an old one has a new owner

The car was first licenced on the 1st of January 1973, so we assumed it was a 1971 built car but we had a records search done on the car and found it dated to 1971.

The car is always rebuilt from the floor pan and upwards, seems to be a logical way to start.

The original paint shade has been returned to the engine bay which in this case is in the back of the car.

The front suspension has been dry fitted to test all the correct Rootes Car Co bolts are correct.

The original metal fluid pipes were acid cleaned and electroplated again.

The steering rack was cleaned, all metal parts re plated and with a new output shaft seal set will be good to go again once Shells gear oil has been added.
