How long does a Hillman Imp restoration take?


That will depend an any amount of factors, the state of the car will of course be the deciding factor.


This 1967 Hillman Imp Californian has just been restored, a period of over two years was taken.


The car is thought to have been parked outside in the elements for a period of four years, South Africa has a very harsh climate for such treatment.



The interior was trashed by the UV from the African sun.



The Sport specification engine was all there but the car had been rammed from behind, many parts were smashed, that included the two forward transaxle mounts which we found had been welded back on to the transaxle casing.


The car when it was in the early stages of re construction and about two and a half years ago.
