Husky - ost.rok; powstało 56.000 szt. Łącznie od 1954 roku około 118.000 szt.
Hillman Minx Series VI ma ten sam silnik co S. V, ale o pojemności powiększonej do 1725cm³, o mocy 65 KM. Angielski 'The Autocar' napisał że wnętrze projektował ktoś znający potrzeby kierowcy. Na tablicy rozdzielczej wykorzystano wiele elementów z nowego Imp-a. Samochód jest o około 20 funtów droższy od Series V; kosztuje 660 funtów.


Super Imp from 1965 gets better sound insulation, improved trim, additional instruments, standard fresh air heater, chrome strips, and small imitation front grille.
The '63 Hillman Minx Series V has revised styling, front brake discs and the 1592cc engine carried over from the Series IIIC. The estate and convertible bodies are no longer available to Minx buyers, although they are available in the Super Minx range introduced in 1961.
The 1965 Minx Series VI carry over the Series V styling and now incorporates the Super Minx 1725cc engine and an all synchromesh gearbox. This new engine deliveres more power and is more refined thanks to its five crankshaft bearings.
The Super Minx Series IV has a more powerful 1725cc engine and "six light" styling.
From Rootes Competition Derartment came Rallye Imp with lowered and stiffened suspension, a special instrument panel and extra slatting in the rear engine cover to keep the compartment cool. The engine is enlarged to 998 cc giving 60 bhp in a standard version and up to 110 bhp if highly tuned-up.

Probably to combat competition from the Ford Cortina and Corsair GT models, Rootes have a new version of the Super Minx for Switzerland which they call the GT or Special 84, fitted with the Rapier-Sceptre engine.
