sales brochure

The year's most outstanding luxury buy, just loaded with extra value features.

Graceful styling, superb craftsmanship, sparkling performance, reliability and economy, plus a new concept in luxury, make the Australian Hillman De Luxe Saloon the most-value-for-money car available to Australian motorists today.
Distinctive side-flashes, chromed headlight cowlings, wrap-round bumpers and overriders are features of the advanced styling, and the ultra-modern rear design, including a chromed number plate surround, gives added elegance to the smooth, flowing contours of the car.  There is a choice of attractive single and two-tone colour schemes in scratch-resisting baked enamel to harmonise with the interior upholstery.

The spacious luggage compartment has a spring-assisted lid which opens with finger-tip ease and shuts securely with a slam-type lock.  The spare wheel is conveniently placed in the luggage compartment for easy removal, and a washable luggage compartment floor mat is a practical amenity.  An efficient suspension system ensures an even, smooth ride and outstanding roadholding.  Safety is further assured by fade-free, swift-acting, large diameter drum brakes and the all-round protection of sturdy, all-steel unitary construction.  A 10-gallon petrol tank is fitted, giving an extensive cruising range.

Within the roomy, richly appointed interior, you can enjoy the pleasure of modern travel in luxury comfort.  The walnut facia door cappings, the deeply sprung, contoured comfort seating, and soft, tough-wearing carpeting front and rear, give an immediate impression of luxury.  Maximum use has been made of every inch of interior space to provide ample headroom and legroom for all occupants.  The steering wheel is angled to give perfect driving ease and the instruments are compactly grouped for easy reading.  Beneath the facia is a parcels tray and a spacious, lockable glove-box.  Armrests are fitted to the rear doors and an interior courtesy light is door-operated.  Through the large area windscreen, you have a commanding view of the road, with slender pillars and wide side and rear windows for clear, all-round vision.  Standard fittings include a built-in heater and ventilation system, windscreen washers, twin sun visors with vanity mirror on the passenger side, door pulls, front and rear ashtrays, and washable headlining.  The upholstery is easy to clean and extremely durable in service.  Here is everything you could desire for gracious travel and complete motoring pleasure.

A product of precision engineering and skill, the highly efficient Hillman 1,592 c.c., O.H.V. engine of modern short-stroke design is specially designed to give livelier performance with reliability and economy.  Developing 56.5 b.h.p. at 4,100 r.p.m., the "1600" engine gives vivid acceleration and a high touring speed.  Larger valves, new pistons and larger crankshaft provide smooth running and ensure a longer engine life.  The new "1600" engine is cushion mounted to absorb noise and vibration and combines with the improved synchromesh gearbox to give effortless motoring at all speeds.
