Humber Super Snipe 1938 Red and Black

£69.99
This is an detailed accurate scale model of the 1938 Humber Super Snipe
 
The Super Snipe was introduced in October 1938, derived by combining the four-litre inline six-cylinder engine from the larger Humber Pullman with the chassis and body of the Humber Snipe, normally powered by a three-litre engine. The result was a car of enhanced performance and a top speed of 79 mph (127 km/h) —fast for its day.
 
The Super Snipe was marketed to upper-middle-class managers, professional people and government officials. It was relatively low-priced for its large size and performance, and was similar to American cars in appearance and concept, and in providing value for money.
 
Within a year of introduction, World War II broke out in Europe but the car continued in production as a British military staff car, while the same chassis was used for an armoured reconnaissance vehicle, the Humber Light Reconnaissance Car.
 
This model is brand new in its original packaging - never opened.
 
Comes on a base with description in plastic packaging.
 
An exquisite piece of motoring memorabilia.
 
A must have for collectors and would make a perfect gift.
