Independent Tyre Test - The Results
In the world of modern tyres it is common place to come across a tyre test. However in the world of classic tyres the investment never seems to be there to do a proper modern tyre test. However a German magazine in July 2016 conducted this modern tyre test using classic tyres. This classic tyre test has been translated from German to English. What is remarkable in this tyre test is quite how well the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 classic tyre performed in the table at the end. The scores in this table are not scored in relationship to the other tyres in the test, so when a score of 1 is recorded, then that is a perfect score for a classic tyre or a modern tyre. It is wonderful to see that these classic PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 tyres can give such exemplary results.
History of the Hillman Hunter
Amongst the last Rootes only design before its take over by Chrysler, the Hillman Hunter was one of several badge engineered brands produced from 1966-1979. Facing cash-problems following poor sales of the Hillman Imp the first Arrow model Was launched, the Hillman Hunter, which was presented as a replacement for the Hillman Super Minx.
The Hunter was lighter than its predecessor the Hillman Super Minx and the wheel-base of the new car was actually 2 1⁄2 inches (6.4 cm) shorter than that of the old, but the length of the passenger cabin was nonetheless improved by moving the engine and the toe-board forwards.
