All mechanical aspects of our 1929 Hillman Fourteen recommissioning project are now complete. All levels have been monitored. Before we can let her back out on the roads we’ve called upon our friends at Vintage Tyres for a new set of front tyres.
Graeme will soon be here from We Fit Any Tyres to fit them up and after one final test drive we can give her the all clear.
Here is our 1929 Hillman standing outside our new Woodbridge workshops in the sunshine waiting for the new tyres to arrive.
Work as begun on the re-commissioning of our 1928 Hillman Fourteen.
She has been very well looked after over the years but as she has been standing for some time without a lot of use the owner has agreed for us to have her in the workshops for a full health check ready for the summer.
The Hillman Fourteen is a medium-sized 4-cylinder car announced by Hillman’s managing director Spencer Wilks, a son-in-law of William Hillman, at the end of September 1925. This new Fourteen substantially increased Hillman’s market share and remained on sale into 1931. During this time it was the main product of the company.
Tucked away, not too far away from our Ipswich workshops, is our gorgeous 1928 Hillman 14. As you can, the car is very well looked after but unfortunately, to the owner’s own admittance, she is not used half as much as she should be but it may be time to find a new home.
In with us for a general check over and re-commission, the car will go through a series of checks to ensure the engine is running right and all levels are accurate. Replacement seals and gaskets will be fitted all round. The braking system will be assessed fully, stripped, cleaned and replaced where necessary.
