Hillman Minx Phase 8 (1955) & 8a (1956)

Hillman Minx Phase 8 (1955) & 8a (1956)

This new two-tone colour scheme was referred to as the 'Gay Look'. The chrome strip running the entire length of the car differentiates it from the Phase 8. The brochure describes it thus: 'New side moulding in chrome and bolder number plate plinth for extra smartness!' The Convertible and Californian retained their Phase 8 looks.
