A red paint day for the Hillman Imp Californian

Early days but progress!

This car is a pleasure to restore.............


Friday, 16 January 2015

Project Hillman Imp Californian by the Rootes Car Co, Scotland 1967.

This one has been with the family over two decades, then sold and bought back six months ago in mid July 2014.

The car is dated 3rd February 1967, a rare export model, it was found with Mozambique plates on it some many years back.

It was originally white, then sprayed red and right now its in an automotive twin pack grey primer and almost ready for some red paints.

Soon to be red again.

The car is licenced and even has its original engine so the numbers match, not only that but the crank still has its original bearings (they are perfect) and the pistons are the originals also!

Barry's Proteus 106 build

Barry took delivery of his Proteus 106 kit last May, he has made great progress since then.

The fact he has a suitable covered space is a bonus, he has reached the stage where the cabin roof will be constructed.

He also fabricated his own forward cross beam, it looks good to me.
