1935 Hill­man 20/70 DeLuxe saloon

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

Hill­man’s move into the more lux­u­ri­ous mar­ket was short-lived, the six cylin­der 2.8-litre 20/70 be­ing in pro­duc­tion for a year be­fore the com­pany de­cided it should con­cen­trate on its more pop­u­lar mod­els. DVCA’s car has been in Dorset all its life, and it still has the Dorch­ester dealer plaque on its dash­board. It’s equipped with sun­roof, open­ing wind­screen, rear blind, foot rests and a ci­gar lighter in the back. Thought to have spent the war years and through the 1950s work­ing as a taxi, it has had a sym­pa­thetic restora­tion, while the orig­i­nal in­te­rior has been re­tained, rather than be­ing sac­ri­ficed to a trim­mer. A crack­ing car in so many re­spects.
