My 1967 Sunbeam Stiletto, My 1969 Hillman Husky. Southern California The Stiletto is one of three known in the US and Canada. They are rare around the world and even rarer here in North America. The Stiletto is the fastback or coupe version of the Hillman Imp. My car is done in the factory team racing colors, but they never raced the Stiletto in these colors. It sports four wheel disc brakes, upgraded brake lines and hoses, and the motor is a BMW K1200RS motorcycle motor. This is the very first steel bodied Imp based car to be converted to the BMW motorcycle motor, which makes it not only a hoot to drive with 130hp instead of the 50-ish it had from factory, but also it is the first converted car. The Stiletto/Imp/Husky are the only rear engined production British cars which were produced in Linwood, Scotland from 1963 to 1976. My second car is my 1969 Hillman Husky which is the Imp based estate car of the Hillman Imp. This car has the motor in the rear with the original Coventry Climax derived 45 hp motor. The Husky was produced in many variants, most of the ones in the US and Canada are the versions of the Minx based cars, my Husky is the last variant based on the Imp. It has a fold down rear seat for more storage and opening vent windows on the sides. Rear hatch opens upward to give great access. Even has a "frunk" or a front trunk that gives some storage too. This is one of about 6 or so in the US and Canada.
