HUMBER 16-60/SNIPE (1934-35)

Tourer, 4-light saloon, 6-light saloon, sports saloon, drophead coupé, limousine de ville.

Vee grilles and bonnet doors instead of louvres are the obvious recognition features, but synchromesh has arrived, and so have the period gimmicks - built-in jacks, Startix, free wheel, automatic choke and (optional for 1935) de Normanville semi-automatic transmission (caution!). Handsome if heavy cars: no tourers in '35, and sports saloon and limousine de ville on Snipe chassis only.
