Humber 1972

Sceptre Mk III (R4 cyl, 1725 cc, 88 bhp)

Great Britain

Sole bearer of an illustrious name this Humber gains extra torque and flexibility from revised valve timing. It now has a Rapier-type close-ratio gearbox with finger-tip controlled overdrive on third and top. Wheel rims are wider and radial ply tyres are standard. New steering wheel with padded centre and new seat trim with woven nylon panels complete the improvements for 1973 on a prestige car at a moderate price.
