Oldest Roadworthy Hillman Imp

Post by Madjad »

Image

Bought by me in 1993 from a number plate dealer!
I bought the plate, and he threw in the car!

Totally rebuilt with one off autojumble finds over 15 years of searching.

A few stray photos in there, ill edit it later

I had to get it finished, so i could rebuild my 912

My first ever car when I was 17 in exactly that colour. I sold it for £10 years later and bought another Imp.

Great job. Car looks fabulous.

Regards
Mike
