1935 Hillman Twenty-70 Limousine
owned by Mariano Bianchi in Argentina

Mariano says that the car has been in his family since 1941.  He requests information about "Wiring Diagrams, Rear Photos, Engine Information (carburetor cycleurs parameters), electrical spare parts (for example the Startix Automatic Switch), etc."  He would very much like to contact another Hillman Twenty-70 owner, anywhere in the world.

The second picture picture is at the Vintage Maraton.  The sight of mud on such a nice car made me flinch, but Mariano assured me that it wasn't as bad as it looks.
