Hillman Californian gives up some secrets

The return of the 1967 Hillman Californian and by its own motive power was a good day for me, the fact that it still drove was a bonus in itself but what would I find wrong with the car?

For sure it had been messed about with, trims damaged or removed, the back bumper was bent and had a split in it but on the good side was a newish water pump and tyres, not sure where they are from, China?


A good power wash with solid clean water soon showed some changes made but why is there a large space at the top of the road spring on the drivers side?

They have fitted a new (?) shock absorber and its about 35mm too long!
