Lot 030: 1903 HUMBER HUMBERETTE 2/3S

Van Dijk Collection, H&H Sales Limited (3 October 2005)

Part of the collection since the mid 1990s, this particular example is finished in cream over brown. Known to have belonged to a William Hackwell of Milford-on-Sea, Hampshire in 1960, it was still in the same county some twenty-seven years later when acquired by Adrian Whitelegge of Finstock, Oxford. Purchased by the previous owner in 1995, it has had just three registered keepers since 1982. Used to participate in (and complete) the famous London-Brighton run on several occasions, its Veteran Car Club of Great Britain 'Certificate of Date' (No.1544) was issued in December 1981. Riding on wire wheels, its scuttle-mounted Schmitt acetylene lamps are complemented by a Lucas No.43 King of the Road rear lamp. 4
