The one which became the Hillman Imp engine
, the FWMA, Feather Weight Marine Automobile. NOT a damned fire pump, whatever drivvle you may read about them. So, as odds and sods progress, I will post pics and chat about them. BTW, the aforementioned Mike Parkes was the engine
er responsible for helping Hillman make the FWMA into the Hillman Imp engine
as well as being a very decent racing driver!
Martin - One of our local race drivers in the 70's Reuben Israel tried stuffing a Lotus Cortina
motor into a Hillman Imp - nearly frightened himself to death in it - cornered worse than a Sunbeam Tiger / Triumph Spitfire. Spitfire tried chasing my FJ engine
d MG Midget - watched his lights revolving in the RV mirror in a 40 degree corner . Somersaulted well - lucky he had a roll bar fitted . The fellow Mike Parkes you were talking about - was it he that had a very succesful racing career with the Imp or someone else?
