Hello all, first time here so go easy on me!
After wanting a classic since I began driving, I've finally bought myself my first classic car. It's a 1965 Hillman Super Minx, 1.6 Saloon.
Mechanically the car is sound - engine idles nicely and the drive is comfortable. Just needs a bit of work doing on the handbrake and rear service brakes. The bodywork is where the issue is however - although there's no surface rust visible on the body, the rear sills need replacing to pass an MOT as well as the front arches. There is also some rot in the drivers footwell on the floor where a small hole is beginning to form.
I can't do any of the welding so will take it to a local restorer, however I can do the brakes and look at the small oil leak coming from somewhere under the engine. Luckily parts seems fairly easy to get hold of for these so I believe I can do, but I was hoping for a few bits of advice beore I got started.
- Where is the best point to jack the car up?
- How easy is it to remove the fornt wings?
- Any other general bits of advice
Hope somebody could help - I want to see the store back to original condition and although I know it'll take time, I have the help and steady funds
to get me going.
