This Hillman Imp coupé was delivered to us in a partially stripped and shot blasted state. There was evidence of a side impact at some point in its life, we decided it would be prudent to take it for a full paint strip to accurately assess the damage. The plan was to turn into a Tarmac rally car, with period modifications and a weld in MSA roll cage.
After the car returned from the paint strippers it was discovered it had substantial side impact damage and all over corrosion. Unfortunately there was not a suitable budget in place to continue with the work. It was sadly returned to its owner.
There are further Hillman Imp projects in the pipeline.
