Hout Bay Harbour and a 1967 Hillman Imp Californian

The harbour and the HBYC marina and the boats on it really make for a fine back drop for this now hard to find Hillman Californian.

Click on the image to enlarge and see full size.

The car was part of the family for a decade and a half, then sold to make space, then bought back to set about the cars restoration I had never really done.

A 1971 Hillman Imp Deluxe was being restored, so this coupe had to wait its turn, the job is mainly done but still not complete.

Some nice rostyle steel wheel rims are at the engineers right now, will they be ready this year and for the annual December close I wonder?

This picture was taken about fifteen years back, check the rostyle wheel rims, they do look a lot nicer?
