Hillman Imp Californian

24/5/2012. Haynes Motor Museum Sparkford Somerset.

KDG 119E 1967 Hillman Imp Californian.

Rootes new baby car was introduced in 1963 made at the Linwood factory in Scotland.
Rear mounted, inclined, 875cc engine with 4 speed all syncro gearbox.
But it wasn't very reliable. Mainly the electrics and the cooling system - it could not compete with the Mini.
When the problems were sorted the Californian was introduced - less headroom, less luggage space, no rear hatch but it had a bit more panache!!!
