The original Humber Snipe was a four door luxury saloon introduced by the British car manufacturer Humber in 1930. Shortly afterwards the company joined the Rootes Group who continued manufacture of the Snipe between 1931 and 1940 and then from 1945 to 1948. During the war years, production of the Snipe for civilian use ceased but the Snipe was used extensively as a military staff car through many areas of conflict. Our newly tooled four-door open Tourer version of the Snipe was produced in 1941 and used in Italy in 1942 by General Montgomery, who had his own personal chauffeur to transport him during his Command of the British Eighth Army in North Africa, Sicily and Italy. Familiarly known as ‘Old Faithful’ the car featured a 3498 cc six cylinder engine and with a top speed of between 65 and 72 mph. The coachwork had been the work of Thrupp & Maberly. The model appears with its green beige hood down, decorated in a pale cream and olive green drab camouflage with light green beige seats. The RAF roundel is printed on the top of the bonnet and the bumper is particular to this release. A final detail sees military lettering printed on both sides of the bonnet . This little vehicle is worthy of a place in your World War II military collection. And, you can see the real thing in the Imperial War Museum in London.
