Welcome to Andys Hillman Imps Web site!

You may have noticed we now have a an SSL Certificate (see the padlock) so even though we dont sell anything or take any information or Cookies from visitors we are now deemed secure.

This site is all about Hillman Imps and their IMP engined derivatives, these include the Singer Chamois, the Californian, the Sunbeam Stiletto, the Sunbeam Imp Sport, the Hillman Husky and the Commer Imp Van.

Also including the new BMW 'K' series moter bike engined cars, this is a relatively cheap conversion that requires no bodywork modifications and as such any installation is completely reversable.

This site started off as a record of just my own Hillman Imps but has turned into a pictorial record of as many Imps as I can find, currently we have pictures of over 880 imps and Imp engined vehicles, including the BMW engine Imps. Since the site started many people have sent in their pictures which I have gratefully included. I am NOT a web designer, as I am sure you can tell, so dont expect fancy stuff, I just do what I can.   If you notice any thing that does not work like it ought to or if you have any pictures that you would let me include please
