The first Hillman Imp

Having sent a picture of a Hillman Imp in a museum to a friend, his comment was that its nice to see that the car has been recognised.

It gets better than that really as the first car made to the Hillman Imp design is still in existance and also in a museum.

Above  is a later Hillman Imp deluxe

The original Mk1 and first Imp built in the Glasgow Motor Museum. I am assuming we are discounting pre production cars? many of which were damaged in testing and often by the Rootes Car Co, apprentices!

The original car, I read last year that the man who spray painted this car was still alive, given that the car was fifty years old last year I would like to think he still is with us now?
