Hillman really didn’t bother with the front number plate on the Imp, did they? The plate always look completely out of place wherever you put them, a complete afterthought.

A bit like Peugeot in the 1980s.

An UMM... haven't seen one of these for years! Apparently very capable, albeit with a face not even its mother could love.

Bloody lovely- who was the shiter of yesteryear who had one of these? That was a brilliant project thread. 

Edit: it was @skattrd and here's the thread. One of the may great things about holidays in portugal is seeing these dotted about all over the place.

There’s been a couple - @skattrd was probably the one you’re thinking of, and I’m very sad to see he’s not visited here since last summer.  Thread: 

 

Breadvan had one too, sold fairly recently. I had a go of that one: it was great fun in a Tonka sort of way but as agricultural as you’d expect.

It's depressing how far Arrow prices have gone up in the last few years.  Seems like only yesterday a scruffy Hunter like that would have been a 500 quid car.  I like them but I'm not paying those prices for one...

There's a Hunter GLS on C&C at the moment for 25 grand. Bonkers.

Have we had this? 657cc 3 cyl automatic, 36k miles, £1250

I think it's way too expensive, but can definitely recommend them as a total hoot. I paid €150 for mine with 12 months test!

I'm pretty sure the UK market Altos (Alti?) of that generation were 800cc rather than the Kei-spec engine.

That’s been relisted every single day for about the last five months, it’s always near the top of one of my ‘newly listed’ saved searches. Goodness knows what’s going on there.

Well you know how to stop that happening, don't you?  Grand Thrift Auto is severely lacking in 1980s Japanese automatic hatchbacks with non-pop-up headlights.

(Although if I was selling a car as "mint", I'd probably go to the trouble of getting a rattle can of matt black from Poundland and tidying up the wiper arms.  And making them park parallel.)

Still remember the first time I drove one of these, thought I was Terry Ten Bollocks.  It was a 4 banger so a bit slow, but sounded great and made you feel like king of the road after a Transit.  Obvs that badge lets it down a lot mind.

I think the days of the Council Estate Elvis are pretty much over now and they've been usurped by the local VAG licker.

I'm with you there Billy!  My first day on a new job I had to take one of these from Southport to Preston, at 3am, with nobody else in the yard.  That was fun...  G150DKC was a six-banger 130, which I think should be about 5.9 litres?  It could go some, certainly!  I often used it for a delivery round in Blackpool, and coming back to Preston it would fly.  I have, naturally, a Corgi Royal Mail Cargo painted up to match... ;)

ETA: I also have a front grille off this model which I was planning to use as a wall ornament in my back yard.  Free if a Shiter can collect...
