The Humber Super Snipe 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". Engine size was now raised to
4. 86cc 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 drophead coupé has clearly seen better days
but represents a fantastic opportunity to bring this majestic
drophead back to its former glory. Finished in two-tone blue. it
was purchased by the vendor in 1983 from a Mr Sparrowhawk of
Banstead. The car was not in a roadworthy condition when purchased;
the idea was to restore the car but has been stored ever since.
Supplied with its original wire wheels and various trim items. this
rare Humber three position drophead coupé is a significant motor
car and will make a fantastic restoration project. Offered at no
reserve.
