Hillman Imp Californian (1967-1970)
This is one of many illustrated classic car guides I've created for the community. I hope you enjoy it. If you wish to find out more about the classic Rootes car art featured in this guide please click here.
The Imp Californian was a smart, lowered-roof, fastback coupe version of the Hillman Imp, still with two doors and the same single-carburettor engine. For the Californian, the rear window was fixed, not hinged, and there was less head-room in the rear seats. This was an interesting little niche model, which sold well. A much more powerful version of it, the Sunbeam Stiletto, would be announced later in the year.
