1937 Humber Snipe

This wonderfully rare Humber has been up in the North of Scotland for the past four years. During this time, an astonoshing £9,000 has been spent on a full engine rebuild, including a new block sourced through the Humber Owner's club. The engine runs perfectly and is still running in having only covered 70 miles since the work was complete. The Humber makes an ideal wedding car with it's beautiful body styling and proves very easy to drive and handle.
