Scottish Cars photographs
This is a picture of a Hillman Imp Motor car. Now regarded as a classic car it was launched by the Rootes group in 1963. The rear engined Hillman Imp were all built in a brand new factory built in Glasgow with government grants.
Power for these small saloons came from a an all-alloy engine developed from a Coventry-Climax unit. Despite only having 875cc the Imp engine provided plenty of power and was matched to an equally good gearbox. Despite some early teething problems the Imp range remained in production until 1976.
This picture was taken at the National Museum of Scotland.
