Such a departure from Humber tradition. This was the beginning of the end.

It would make a great historic race car, as seen from other A95 Westminsters raced at Goodwood Revival.

It's doomed.

It was the end of the end, really, I suppose. Had it appeared as the originally intended Sunbeam it's difficult to see Humber lasting another decade without these to sell. I think it was a bit of a stroke of genius on Rootes Group's part, appealing to the sporty young exec. in the same manner as the P6 Rover. Such a nicer car than the 2000E too. Anyway, that's enough waffle - there is shit on Ebay still to be laughing at.

Nice though they are, the ludicrous wheel size upset the delicate balance. Combined with plain Smiths instruments and that copy of a Chevrolet engine you know Humber was miles ahead. And cheaper to buy today.

I tried to buy a mint one of those years ago, but couldn't get the bank loan. Bloody lovely things.
