... When is the new Hillman baby due ?

In Car Mechanics, February 1962, in the "Look Ahead" section:

Expect the Rootes baby car in the spring of next year - this is official. But what isn't official is that the car is a real firecracker and the prototypes went so well, the engines had to be de-tuned ! From whispers received, the baby may well knock the Volkswagen out as far as exports are concerned.
