Hillman Imp Californian circa 1967

Progress has moved to a trial fit of the cars new interior. The trim uses the same panel layouts and black vinyl that the Rootes Car Co, Scotland used.

Click on the pictures to enlarge them.

The door cards and padded top door caps have since been fitted.

The interior was re made by one of the best trim shops we have.

The engine was running when this shot was taken, note the 50 pounds oil pressure, the amp meter is not connected.

This is the original engine block, all numbers match, the block still runs the original pistons, crank and all bearings, we fitted new piston rings some time back.

The interior will next be removed pending the completion of some parts the the new paint works.
