HUMBER 16/SNIPE

Saloon, sports saloon, drophead coupé.

1938's technical, badge-engineering and semantic reshuffle, and these flush-boot saloons with mechanical brakes, steel-spoke wheels, and cheap and nasty facias - both body and wheelbase are shared with the Hillman 14 - are reskinned 1937 Hillman sixes. Transverse-leaf ifs, of course, while '39s have X-braced frames and hydraulic brakes, and '40s come with the '46-style projecting boot. Dropheads 1939 only.
