    Neat car. Again, nice to see something a bit different here on DT. I didn't see anything about it in the Hemmings listing for this car, but I don't recall any Sceptres ever being sold here in the US. We got the Hawk and the Super Snipe, if I have my info right.

    Covello's book states that production didn't begin until 1964, which is counter to what's listed on Wikipedia and this car's supposed production date. I've never driven or been in a Humber and I'm sure it's not a particularly exciting experience, but it's still an interesting vehicle. I wouldn't mind driving a Pullman around for a bit.

    Two thoughts about this cool looking little car:
    1) Is that a Dymo labeller hanging on the left side of the firewall ?
    2) Rootes……Sunbeam Tiger….. Sceptre + 289 Ford/4 speed….just sayin…

      1) Guessing that's the wiper motor, with some kind of cable-drive to the linkage.

      2) Think a little Windsor would be a very tight fit in there, however a 2.9 Cologne V6, a Zetec four, or something like – to stick with the later Rootes/Mopar lineage – something like a Neon SRT4 motor…
