On offer is this superb Hillman Super Minx finished in period Fern Green with an Alpine White roof and green trim. The car has covered an incredibly low 28,800 miles from new supported by extensive history and old MoT certificates.

It was supplied new by Reading Garages and apart from a brief period in Cheltenham, has always been a local car and in the ownership of two sisters who clearly garaged and cherished it.

We have carried out some light recommissioning including a brake refresh, a service and some new tyres to replace the original 'John Bull' crossplies - these come with the car if you want them!

For sale on behalf of the owner.

Bodywork

The bodywork is in super order with no visible rust, appears to be mostly original, and offers a very British take on period transatlantic styling with a wrap around rear window and the merest hint of fins at the rear.

Mechanical

Having covered such a low mileage, as you can imagine the car drives extremely well with no rattles or other untoward noises, the engine is quiet, gearchanges smooth and the reassurance of disc brakes up front. Refreshed with new coolant hoses and a flush, the car feels unhurried and maintains a normal temperature.

Exterior

The overall impression is that of a two year old car rather than that of a 55 year old. There are the odd marks here and there but certainly nothing that detracts from its appearance. The chrome is generally very good as are all of the lenses and other trim.

Interior

Wonderfully original, these Hillmans were always slightly more upmarket than many of the contemporary Fords and Vauxhalls of the same era. The seats remain supportive and the vinyl is free from damage or fading as the car was garaged for most of its life. The carpets are original and unworn but have faded somewhat but it would seem a shame to change them.

 

Apart from our accurate and reliable description of this car we believe you will not find a better bunch of chaps to deal with; we know our MGs inside out, we won’t flannel you with sales speak and we aim to provide you with a car that you will be bringing back in a year’s time when the next service and MOT is due, no sooner! However, if you do have a problem we will stand by our car and help you in every way possible. We like to think that 38 years in this business counts for something.

 We are in the quiet Berkshire countryside but close to the M4 and Mortimer Railway Station. Our local pub, the Elm Tree is just a few minutes’ walk away and serves fantastic food and proper beers. Call us to arrange a viewing and a test-drive and come and make a day of it.
