The last variants of the (1956 model) Hillman Minx arrived in 1963 and 1965. The '63 Series V had revised styling, front brake discs and the 1592cc engine carried over from the Series IIIC. Sadly the estate and convertible bodies were no longer available to Minx buyers, although they were available in the Super Minx range introduced in 1961.
The 1965 Series VI Minx carried over the Series V styling and now incorporated the Super Minx 1725cc engine and an all synchromesh gearbox. This new engine delivered more power and was more refined thanks to its five crankshaft bearings.
