Description:

Humber Imperial – 1966 – 3 litre Automatic – straight six

This is 1 car of 14 cars entered into the auction from a private collector.

This car was purchased by the current owner for his extensive collection and is in great condition, the original green metallic paintwork is excellent, with matching green leather and picnic tables. It has the 2965cc straight six OHV engine which gives out 135hp and a Borg Warner type 35 three speed automatic box. Although the mileage of 83,759 can’t be verified, it is felt that considering the condition of the whole vehicle, it could be correct.  In 1964 the Rootes Group revived the Humber Imperial name for a top-of-the-line Humber Super Snipe, distinguished by a slightly lower different shaped coupe and vinyl-clad roof. Automatic transmission was standard and there was a more luxuriously appointed interior. It has fully reclining front seats and hydrosteer power steering which was standard on this model. Also electrically adjustable rear shock absorber settings and a separately controlled rear passenger heater. The Imperial, a name given to this luxury model, is quite rare these days due to the limited numbers built and even fewer surviving in this condition.  This particular car built in November 1966 would be one of the last of this model made, as the Rootes Group withdrew the range of large Humbers including the Imperial in 1967. The car drives very well and is extremely comfortable, sitting in the deep leather armchair seats that are typical of this highly sort after model.
