Hillman Super Minx Series II

In 1961 Hillman introduced a new deluxe variant of its popular Minx model, the Super Minx. The Super Minx was based around the same mechanical items as the standard car, this meant a 1592cc four cylinder engine coupled with a four speed manual gearbox.

The main difference between the Minx and Super Minx was the bodywork. The new car had a much larger and more modern body design which had a distinctive full width grille and headlamps "capped" by unusual semi-circular side/indicator lamps. The Super Minx had lots of chrome trim and featured a spacious, more luxurious interior. In 1962 a Series II arrived introducing front disc brakes and automatic transmission as an option.  Practical Classics Spring 1994 - Featuring Buyers Guide Family Soft-Tops.  Click Here to view in our shop.  Also: Practical Classics June 2010 - Featuring Buyers Guide Hillman Super Minx (1961-1967).  Click Here to view in our shop.
