Description 1958 Humber Super Snipe Series 1 Tax and Mot exempt

Relisted due to buyer thinking it was an Imperial align="center">Ok here we have my 1958 Humber Super Snipe Series 1. It's tax and mot exempt. I've owned it for nearly 2 years now and have carried out lots of work to keep her going and made some improvements along the way. Halogen head lights, air ride rear shocks, electronic ignition, alternator and converted to negative earth, fuel pump overhaul, new plugs, leads, cap, rotor arm, old looking cd player with usb and memory card reader, tow bar with electrics, general service work etc. It also had a new servo prior to me getting it.
The general condition of the car is good but the body does need some work mainly the door bottoms and wheel arches, normal places for a car of this age (basically the lower green bits!) The upper grey part is pretty good apart from a couple of bits on the top of the wings.
The interior is clean and tidy, the rear seat is original but the front is from a Hawk. I did paint the lower part green but the paint match was way off so I never did the back rest. Carpets are Ok in the front but the rears have seen better days. Door cards are Ok but not perfect.
It runs and drives very well pulling from about 20 mph in top gear, the 2.6 straight 6 has lots or torque and its a 3 on a tree column shift. The engine is fine how ever one of the core plugs is starting to leak and the water pump is showing signs of wear. It's still usable but they'll need doing at some stage.
The brakes are servo drums all round but stops fine.
The wheels are ARE daisy mags with very good tyres.
Generly this is a good usable classic car that you can drive away. It will tow a caravan with 4 passengers and a boot full of luggage no problem.
Remember this is a 56 year old car that does need some work so don't expect a concourse example.
I'll give you some spares I've got that includes chrome trim items, cylinder head, rear diff from a later 3lt Snipe with a better final drive ratio, and an original hand book and workshop manual.

Car is in Dover Kent and you can drive it home.
