Hillman - Hillman Minx

The Hillman Minx name first appeared in 1932. From 1956 onwards the Hillman Minx models, as part of the Rootes Group, looked very like both the Singer Gazelle and Sunbeam Rapier.

- Hillman Minx made prewar (1932 to 1934) tyre size was 450x18. Blockley makes the perfect 450/500x18 tyre to suit.
