The Hillman Light Utility Truck (better known as Hillman Tilly) is actually the military
version of the Hillman Minx 10 HP saloon. The chassis is the same size and it uses
a "platform" construction that is the result of welding a pressed-steel floor to
a frame, which results in great diagonal stiffness.
About 20.000 vehicles were build. At this moment about 33 ´survivors` (from wreck
to excellent) are registered at the Tilly Register.
Beside the Hillman Tilly were three other makes, the made light utility trucks: Morris,
Austin en Standard. More information about all makes can be found at the site of
the Tilly Register.
