Hillman Minx Phase 6
The Phase 6 was introduced in 1953. The grille was now oval-shaped. This was the 21st anniversary of the Hillman Minx.
Below: "The rear lights are neatly faired into a stream-lined housing, and at night indicate the full width of the car".
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.

The new "Series" Minxes were completely re-designed for the 1957 model year. The car was designed by Raymond Loewy studios.
The Series II had a new grille. The Jubilee was a double: 50 years of Hillman and 25 years of Minxes
Hillman Husky II
The Husky was a short wheel-base station wagon, based on the Minx.
