A very tidy well cared for Hillman Superminx with some history from previous owner inc stamped original owners service book, old MOT certificates, some back to 1988 (miles 9732). Current mileage showing 18,415 (please make your own enquiries)

We purchased this car to supply as part of our contract for classic car hire to the BBC for Antiques Road Trip. The car was used during filming between August and October 2018. The episodes 1-5 of series 18 were first shown from January 7th to January 13th 2019. You can also see them on iPlayer atBBC One - Antiques Road Trip, Series 18, Episode 1

Drives very well and happy to cruise at 60+, is very reliable with no apparent problems. Bodywork and exterior trim all very tidy, a previous owner prior to 2011 must have had bodywork restored as it was very good when we bought the car, we had a few minor blemishes removed and blended in on lower half prior to filming.

Underside clean with no obvious problems. Interior all very good with an excellent headlining. Front screen seal hard with slight leak. New seal included in spares. The car has had a non standard 6 gallon fuel tank fitted by previous owner, the old fuel tank is included. This is a very attractive and useable classic car that has averaged around 500 miles for last 8 years. Everything works as it should. Ready to go, as you would expect after being prepared for film work. Although not requiring an MOT the car is MOT'd until 16/7/20.
