The Hillman Imp, a rebuild of a 1971 model

The car was taken apart, then as many of those parts were re painted or in many cases either electro galavanised and in some cases chrome plated as an up grade over the standard black painted finish.


The picture shows the cars original transaxle (gear box) refitted, the clutch slave cylinder and clutch release pad are new, as are the output drive shaft rubber couplers, out of sight are the two forward rubber transaxle mounts, new and imported from the UK suppliers.


The rear engine mount rubber was of course replaced with a Rootes parts number marked new one.

The car will be uprated when we can do so, rust preventer will be injected in all the places rust is known to happen, a new car? not really but this car will exist for decades to follow.

Nice!

I know of possibly two more Hillman Imp based cars we can rebuild, let me know if your wanting one?
