The Humber Super Snipe is a car which was produced
from 1938 to 1967 by the British-based car manufacturer and
part of the Rootes Group. The 1930s car came with a
3498cc straight six cylinder overhead inlet side exhaust
valve engine and a claimed power output of 80hp. The classic
limousine style body featured rear hinged doors and in some
respects resembled the Humber Snipe 80 with which it shared its
engine. Humber. the manufacturer. lost its independence in 1931
when the Rootes Group acquired a majority share holding.
A re-bodied Pullman with two-piece 'V' windscreen appeared in 1936
sharing the wheelbase of its predecessor but with the overall
length of the car increased to 196 inches. Engine size was now
raised to 4086cc while power output was claimed to be 100hp. The
power increase was also evident from the top speed which now edged
up to 75mph. In 1939. the Pullman was joined by the Humber Imperial
or Snipe Imperial which shared the engine with the Pullman. the car
nevertheless remained spacious and was favoured for use by British
government ministers during the 1940s.

This stunning Humber Imperial drophead coupé has clearly been
much loved and cherished although sadly little history is
available. The red and cream coachwork is complemented by white
wall tyres and a tan trim. The pre-selector gearbox functions well
with no adverse noises or delays and the engine starts immediately
when requested. running smoothly and quietly. Supplied with a V5
registration document together with an MoT test certificate valid
until 1st February. 2014 this three position drophead coupé is a
rare Humber and a significant potential investment.
