Hillman - Hillman Husky
The Hillman Husky was a 2 door estate bodied version of the Hillman Minx (Mark 8), available from 1954, which was replaced in 1958 with the Series 1 newer look and 1390 cc overhead valve engine. For 1960 the Husky Series 2 had some body revisions, a little more power and a 4 speed gearbox. The Series 3 introduced in 1963 with the new bodywork that went throughout the Roots range, but the Husky kept the 15" wheels to ensure good ground clearance. Hillman Husky Series 3 production ended in 1965. The next time the name was used was in 1967 with the Hillman Imp with modified bodywork to make into a van.
Hillman Husky tyre sizes were 5.00x15 for the earlier cars (up to 1960) and thereafter 5.60x15. The Blockley raidal tyre 155R15 would be a good radial substitute.
