Picture of Minx from Hillman

Hillman Minx.

More information on this Hillman:

My guess is that this is a Hillman Minx of the 1930s or 1940s. I took this photo when visiting an amazing old scrapyard near Sheffield in the mid 1990s. The yard was slowly being cleared with only interesting stuff to be found around the perimeter in the undergrowth. This old car had been there some time but probably got crushed a few months after this picture.

This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Hillman above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Minx would be much appreciated.

All the photos, including this picture of an old Hillman Minx, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the Minx, and similar old Hillmans, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
