Restoration of a Hillman Imp Californian car

The 1967 Hillman Imp Californian took some 24 months to restore,


The car is now close to complete, the fitting of new disc brakes on the front may be the next job to do, the discs are in stock, so an easy job to fit.


This is how the front disc sets look when fitted to the Imp car, this one has extra length studs to accept Supalite alloy rims, which were fitted on a race imp in 2012.

The calipers are Ford and suit the Imp when it has the 13" rims fitted.


With the Imp Sport engine conversion this 875cc engine gives a good acceleration over the standard Imps engine.
