Lot 108 - 1966 Humber Super Snipe
|Odometer reading||27,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £2,240|
The 'Super Snipe' first emerged in the late 1930s, successfully becoming a car of discerning choice amongst the respectable management set. Various upgrades and improvements continued and the Series II model, launched in 1959, benefited from a 3.0 litre engine and front disc braking.
Imported into the UK earlier this year from a private middle eastern collection. This left hand drive example was restored in 2002 and presents in very good condition, clearly having had huge amounts of money spent on it throughout its life. The interior and paintwork present very well and show little sign of age and it benefits from recent recommissioning work carried out by renowned classic car and race specialists Alan Mann Racing. The Humber shows circa 27,000 miles on the odometer which is believed to be genuine. Offered with a foreign title and Nova document. Ready to be registered here in the UK and enjoyed by its new owner!
We are advised by the vendor that the Humber has been recommissioned and drives well, however further recommissioning is recommended. The UK taxes have been paid and it comes with its Nova reference number.
