Humber
HUMBER SUPER SNIPE

Saloon, sports saloon, drophead coupé.

Take the 114ins wheelbase chassis of the 1939 compacts, with the latest reinforced frame and hydraulic anchors - plus Rimbellishers to hide those unsightly wheels - and drop in the big 100bhp engine. There's still over 11/2 tons to haul, so don't expect Ford V8 performance. However, with 85mph and 0-50 in 11.6secs, you might just about see off a Buick Special. Projecting boots on '40s, though these are normally only seen in military form with austere trim and oversize footwear.
