1939 Pre-War Hillman Minx Saloon The 1938 model was not the final
iteration before the outbreak of war, however, as the 1939 model
was considerably different mechanically, with virtually the entire
drive-train improved to the extent that few parts are
interchangeable with the 1938 model. This includes gearbox,
differential, half shafts, steering box, and a great many other
mechanical and cosmetic changes. Even the front grille, which to
the casual eye looks almost identical to the 1938 model, became a
pressed alloy component rather than a composite. Rootes was the
first company to enter the Government's Shadow Factory Scheme for
the volume manufacture of aeroplanes and aero engines. By the time
the sirens were sounding, Rootes factories were turning out
aircraft as well as vehicles for the R.A.F. and other services. In
1942, as a result of the raising of Coventry and other prodigious
war work, William became Sir William Rootes, Knight Commander of
the British Empire. -Vehicle is on consignment and at our clients
