Humber Super Snipe

Humber revealed further improvements to its 'Snipe range in 1960 with the launch of the Super Snipe III. The new 'Snipe had a new four headlamp front (the first time for a British car) and many detail improvements. Underneath the substantial bonnet sat a 2965cc six cylinder engine which produced a top speed of around 100mph.

Once again the Super Snipe was available in four door saloon, touring limousine and estate car versions. All types featured sumptuous wood and leather interiors and were well built.
