Description 1965 Hillman Super Minx Estate - Station Wagon

1965
Hillman Super Minx Estate

I
sold this car in the spring to a fellow who was recently diagnosed with a
serious illness.  As a favor, I purchased
the car back from him.  He did some work
on the car and I’ve continued to putter on it but it’s obvious I can’t work on
cars anymore. That’s why I sold it in the first place!  So, here it is again.  It’s a cool old car and about as rare as it
gets.  If you’re good with wood, make it
a woodie, that’s what I would have done.

The car is a rock solid example of a very
rare wagon, it starts, runs, drives and stops and would take little to certify
mechanically. Being a Hillman the mechanical parts are easy to come by as they
are for the most part common to the Sunbeam Alpine of that year and are
available at Sunbeam suppliers in the US. Other parts are common
with other British cars or available from UK suppliers.  The Super Minx was made at the same time they
made the Hillman Husky and the Sunbeam Alpines and Tigers.  I’ve collected Hillman for many years and
this Super Minx Estate is one of the rarest models I’ve found.

This car originally came out of the
Washington D.C area.  It still has a
Dealer Sticker from Bethesda Maryland on the tailgate and one of the Stars and
Stripes on the side window.  The owner
must have been a real traveler because there are stickers on the tailgate from
places as far apart as North Carolina and South Dakota!  That probably explains the rear axle having
been exchanged for one from a later Sunbeam Alpine which probably gave it
higher speeds and better economy.  

The engine is in excellent condition and runs
well.  It’s recently had a full tune-up
including plugs, points, condenser, distributor cap and wires.  The fuel tank has been removed, cleaned,
relined and repainted. With the fresh tank I installed all new fuel lines and
had the carburetor rebuilt.  The brakes
were fully serviced with new wheel cylinders, new shoes in the back and new
rotors and calipers in the front.  The
brake master cylinder was also rebuilt. 
The tires were replaced and the wheels were all repainted.  The drive shaft was recently refurbished with
new universal joints(MGB), end stock seal and yoke(Alpine). The hydraulic
clutch system was rebuilt with a new clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder.
It needs an emergency brake handle and some electrics need sorting but the
headlights, etc, all work.  Even the
interior dome light works when the door is opened!

The interior is completely original and in
remarkable condition. There is a cut in the driver’s seat.  The pictures show the interior faults quite
well.  The seats will need re-padding and
it needs a very good cleaning.  The roof
lining is quite serviceable as a driver. 
There are lots of pictures in the link.

Mostly, the car needs paint and a bit of bodywork,
the paint is original from the plant. 
Clear coat it and give it the ‘rat’ look if you like.  There’s virtually no rust underneath and no
holes in the floors. The rockers had been replaced when I got it. Most of what
needs to be done is bodywork on the right rear passenger door which looks to
have been hit along the front edge. The right front fender has some minor body
damage from a bump. One of the hinges on the bottom tail-gate needs a weld
repair.

The exhaust leaks badly, which you’ll hear in
the video.  You’ll also see a picture of
a complete NOS exhaust system which comes with the car.  I also have spare glass for both rear side
windows and the rear tail-gate window. 
The existing windows are fine, it just came with spares!  All the rest of the glass is good and the
windows all work. Any missing or damaged side trim has been replaced and comes
with the car.

The car is located in Brampton Ontario,
Canada a one hour drive to Niagara Falls NY, I have a valid Ontario title,
importation into the US will not be an issue, talk to your US customs
people.

I’ll include a service manual and a variety
of parts including a new rubber gasket for the windshield. If it's missing something that I have in my stock, you can have it, no charge, if you just pay for the shipping.  Beyond that, I'm here for advice, if you need it.
