1967 Hillman Minx 1500

The tarpaulin didn't do much to hide the fact it was one of the Rootes Arrow cars, but I was surprised to find it was as old as 1967. The front registration plate was visible and it carried a Suffolk F-registration, DVLA saying it was last taxed in 1992! So, 25yrs on the road and almost the same amount since.

 

Even in the early '90s it would have been rare to see things like this on the road and I don't recall it myself. Would be interesting to know more about it.
