Little Red NotVette: 1962 Hillman Husky Series II

This next car isn’t something that’ll break records at the Nürburgring…in fact, it probably wouldn’t make a complete lap without stopping for a repair or two, but that shouldn’t stop you from owning one of the coolest cars to ever come out of the Rootes Group factory in England. The seller of this car doesn’t include many pictures or specs, but the Husky is powered by a 1.4 liter inline-4 that will propel this little wagon from zero to 60mph in just under 27 seconds on the way to a blistering top speed of 73.4 mph. Eat your heart out McLaren. Find this 1962 Hillman Husky Series II offered for $5000 in Rochester, NY via eBay.
