Humber Super Snipe I

A revised Hawk and Super Snipe range arrived in 1958 introducing unitary construction to Humber models for the first time. As with previous Humber model line-ups the new range started with the four cylinder Hawk, however it now shared the same basic bodyshell as the larger six cylinder Super Snipe.

The new body had an almost American appearance with a full width grille and substantial chrome bumpers. Inside the Super Snipe was well appointed, body styles included saloon, estate and a "Touring Limousine" version. The 'Snipe with its 2655cc Six was slightly underpowered so a revised 2965cc Super Snipe II, complete with front disc brakes, came in 1959.
