A magnificent new car for new luxury travel
Once again, Humber has raised the Standard of high-performance, luxury motoring. The New Humber Super Snipe now embodies new developments in car design that combine to give even finer styling, more comfort, increased driving pleasure and greater safety. Advanced new features include new front end styling, with twin headlights for better road illumination and night safety, re-designed seats with more headroom in the front and more legroom in the rear, a perfected system of road-holding and suspension, and a more efficient ventilation system. There are also many agreeable refinements such as centre armrests for optional individual front seats. The New Humber Super Snipe is certainly the most progressive car in itsits class today.
Available with Fully-Automatic Transmission, and Power-assisted Steering.
