Sir,

I am a Hillman-owning member of the V.S.C.C., having had a ’28 14-h.p. saloon and now a ’29 tourer. I advertised a few weeks ago for knowledge of all Vintage or pre-1930 Hillmans and so far have six replies, including a ’27 chassis I towed up from Exeter. I am forming a register (or trying to) for purposes of registration, preservation and mutual help, and perhaps forming a team to support meetings. All pre-1930 owners are welcome to contact me and come and see me if they so wish. I have some spares but badly require a ’29 bodyshell to complete a rebuild (even bolted up to the chassis). I hope to arrange a meeting in town in the spring.

If you would be so kind as to publish this for me we might succeed in preserving some more of the very good, if cheap, Hillman 14s and perhaps in locating a few more 10.4 and 9.6-h.p. cars. Owning a ’29 Rolls-Royce 20 h.p., I find a quite astonishing number of similarities in design, excluding those which Hillmans made under licence. The front brakes, Royce patent, are better than the Rolls’, being rod operated. The oil gauge is carefully tilted for easy viewing and is not placed directly behind the oil filter! The clutch is superb, and so on.

MICHAEL BURN.
