Humber Super Snipe MkIII Saloon (1952)

Humber launched its Super Snipe II in 1948, a much welcome improvement after the last Snipe model. The new car had smoother styling with faired headlamps in the front wings, although it still retained a familiar pre-war feel. The gearchange was operated by a column shift and independent front suspension was of a similar design to the previous model.

Although most Super Snipes had four door saloon bodies some limousine variants were also produced. More specialist coachwork was also available including a Tickford convertible and an estate version which featured all-steel panels (instead of the "Woody" construction popular in this period). In 1950 more changes and improvements were introduced on the Super Snipe III.
