A full colour booklet about the new factory in Linwood making the Hillman Imp. The booklet was made for the official opening of 'Linwood' in May 1963. It has 16 pages.
The new Rootes factory at Linwood, Paisley, is a planned industrial undertaking on a vast scale, and the Rootes Group takes pride in bringing the British motor industry back to Scotland.
In the dawn of the motoring age, the town of Paisley created one of the legends of motoring with the long-vanished but honourable name of Arrol-Johnston. Now, backed by Rootes knowledge and experience and embodying all traditional quality and craftmanship, the Hillman Imp emerges from Linwood, designed to achieve new honours and stand among the great names of British motor-cars.
For Scotland, and her engineering genius and her people, the bold and imaginative Rootes development at Linwood represents a leap forward into tomorrow's vigorous expanding economy. As the new cars roll from these assembly lines in growing volume, the Rootes Group salutes Scotland's great industrial past and is proud to join in Scotland's greater future.
