A bit of inside info on how Rootes dealt with their partner George Hartwell Ltd., their so-called 'main dealer'.
Thank you for your letter received in this Department 1st April, concerning the above.
Your letter has been passed to our main dealers George Hartwell Ltd. 35-41 Oldhamhurst Road, Bournemouth, Hampshire who specialise in tuning the Hillman Imp, and you doubtless be hearing from them within the next few days with the information you require.
