This belongs to a friend of mine so I accept no responsibility for it whatsoever.

At first glance this might appear to be a stock restoration project, but look a little closer -

Yes, that's right, it's been ever so slightly modified for that sleeper look.

Those Imp officionados who are familiar with the standard product may spot some of the subtle additions such as:

The 6" chopped and couped Austin Westminster roof,


The Morris Minor bonnet hump,


The '46 Chevy grille and bumper,


The Swiss Army penknife style doors,


And not forgetting those barely noticeable '59 Caddy rear wings.


Hopefully Jeff will be driving the Gimp on the public highway later on this year, and it may or not be sporting a full graffiti paint job.
But don't worry about not spotting it amongst the sea of other tidy standard(ish) Hillman Imps out there, as the Stinger exhaust will ensure that you are alerted to it's prescence long before it comes into view.

That would've looked the nuts if he'd stopped at the chop, the roofline reminds me a lot of my old Anglia.

Wow that’s mad. I love it :tup:
I own a couple of Imp’s and I’ve spent years trying to make my small block chevy powered Imp look stock
I think it’s only to the trained eye that you can spot the very subtle changes you’ve made :happy:
