Mariano says that the car has been in his family since 1941.
He requests information about "Wiring Diagrams, Rear Photos, Engine Information (carburetor cycleurs parameters), electrical spare parts (for example the
Startix Automatic Switch), etc." He would very much like to contact another Hillman Twenty-70 owner, anywhere in the world.
You can e-mail him at email@example.com

The second picture picture is at the Vintage Maraton. The sight of mud on such a nice car made me flinch, but Mariano assured me that it wasn't as bad as it looks.
Another angle of this model can be seen in David Watson's 1935 Hillman catalog (secondary window).
From Mariano in late October 2003 :

Villa General Belgrano is a small town characterised by its Central European style, reflected in the architecture, customs, cuisine and festivities. This European influence dates back to 1932 when two people of German descent bought the place, originally called "El Sauce" (The Willow), with a view to founding a settlement for their compatriots.
The second stage of the Rally began at 10 am on Saturday morning, crossing the following cities Santa Rosa,
Embalse Rio Tercero, San Agustin, and the owners made a stop to have lunch in the Air Flying Club of Alta Gracia City.
After lunch the rally continued until the locality of Mina Clavero crossing the zone of the Mountains of the Comechingones, with the cars arrive until 7800 feet (2400 metres) of height.
