THE CCW VIEW

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING - RICHARD DREDGE CON­TRIB­U­TOR

Some cars never get a look in, over­shad­owed in­stead by more glam­orous – or just bet­ter sup­ported – mar­ques such as Tri­umph, Jaguar or MG. The Hill­man Minx is just such a car. There isn’t much glamour to be found in the Minx range (with the ex­cep­tion of the un­usual con­vert­ibles), but there is a great de­gree of de­pend­abil­ity, af­ford­abil­ity and prac­ti­cal­ity on of­fer – es­pe­cially where the ul­tra-rare es­tates are con­cerned. Low val­ues and a dowdy im­age mean that there aren’t many of these cars left – they cost too much to re­store rel­a­tive to what they’re worth. De­spite this, the Minx will fit the bill per­fectly if you’re look­ing for a re­li­able and prac­ti­cal fam­ily-friendly clas­sic.
