SCROLL DOWN FOR PREVIOUSLY UNOBTAINABLE AUSTRALIAN HILLMAN HUNTER PARTS:
The almost forgotton / best kept secret in bargain classic motoring ... Hunters! :)
BUT... CLASSIC HUNTERS ARE now starting to MAKE A COMEBACK IN POPULARITY!
For years since getting into these funky little cars, we found it almost impossible to find what we needed in any correct parts (and even more so performance upgrades) and to know the best way to go with repairs and mods, so we decided to help fellow enthusiasts not have to go through what we did, by creating this handy webpage and parts service where we've already done the hardest time consuming work and research for you! And... WE PERSONALLY TEST OUR PRODUCTS ON OUR OWN DAILY DRIVE HUNTERS AT 80,000 KLMS PER YEAR!! If they pass the performance & reliability tests on our own cars we sell them. (You won't find that reassurance anywhere else!)

(P.O.A. for most of these parts) # PLEASE NOTE THAT MANY OF THESE BRAND NEW HILLMAN HUNTER PARTS NEED TO BE CUSTOM MADE TO ORDER NOWADAYS AND SOURCED FROM OUR VARIOUS SPECIALISED SUPPLIERS AND MANUFACTURERS WITHIN AUSTRALIA AND WORLD-WIDE SO EXACT PRICES MAY VARY DEPENDING ON EXCHANGE RATES AND SUPPLIER STOCK AT THE TIME, BUT WE WILL CONFIRM CURRENT PRICES UPON YOUR ORDER. FULL PAYMENT IS REQUIRED UPON ORDERING THESE EXTREMELY HARD TO SOURCE PARTS THAT NEED TO BE ORDERED IN.
Being very slow turnover, low volume, high quality, custom made parts, most are not cheap to make these days and we also have to pay exchange rate differences and fees, import, customs and freight costs on top of our purchasing costs etc. However these are all well worth it, as ... We have done all of the many years of hard work, research and testing and resourcing worldwide to finally bring fellow Chrysler/Hillman Hunter owners these awesome/best parts for your classic car and we run most of these same parts in our own Hunters which has lead us to list these for others to enjoy too as it's amazing ... the awesome difference they make!
Apart from the factory included items mentioned above, our 1970 660 Royal sports sedan also left the factory with 'Valiant VG Sports 770 style' black luxury Buffalo grain interior with high back bucket seats and nice 770/VIP grain style vinyl roof, a short floor console, VG Pacer steering wheel and collapsible boss and many other Valiant parts lifted straight from the CAL Valiant parts draws (In March 1968 Chrysler Australia released a news bulletin introducing the exciting new Hunter by Chrysler, and confirmed that the Australian content of the Hunters would be progressively lifted to 95 percent) The 660s also included a stunning real polished wood dash with full sports instrumentation, 1725cc GT Hi-Performance engine with large valve Alloy head and factory 2 piece sports exhaust header system, twin Stromberg CD150 side draft carbs (similar to LC XU1 Toranas ) Power assisted front Disc brakes and the Australian made ROH version 'rostyle' sports wheels.
This car also has the optional Laycock overdrive transmission which enables a 5 or 6 speed manual that transforms it into a much smoother and quieter beast on the freeway!
An interesting point also that most people aren't aware of is that the 660's sometimes had sporty black painted lower sill sections like this car had and not just the more common grey. (I actually have an original CAL press photo of a 660 and it has the black, not the grey which confirms this)
The Hottest factory Hunters to come out were Holbay enhanced and included twin side draft 2 Barrel DCOE Webers, similar to Aussie 265 cid Hemi RT Valiant Chargers, but of course instead of a Six Pack they were a 'Four Pack' (4 Barrels) Click on these following videos to see them in action!
