This is a pretty rare car. In fact it’s the only one still in existence to the best of our knowledge (If you know otherwise please let us know by commenting below!). The Hillman ‘Ten’ estate is based on a Hillman Minx saloon with the rear body built by the Pressed Steel Company.
After a chance conversation with a visitor to the Beaulieu International Autojumble last year, a regular customer of ours who already owns the saloon and drophead coupé versions purchased then transported this car back to his home workshop. It had sat in the previous owner’s garage for over ten years and was in need of some serious restoration work.
Since then the car has been stripped down and fully resprayed and we have started a full electrical rebuild including fabricating a custom rear-section wiring harness sympathetic to the factory-fitted original.
The project continues and regular updates will be posted here.
