HUMBER SNIPE IMPERIAL

4-light saloon, 6-light saloon, sports saloon, drophead coupé.

Effectively, the name is the only thing that is not the same, for this is the 1936-37 Snipe with steel-spoke wheels and a new and more attractive razor-edge style for sports saloons. (Similar bodies were listed in 1938/39 compact Humber sixes, too.) 1940s (were there any?) with hydraulic brakes. A tough and roomy old workhorse, but resign yourselves to 15mpg.
