  1. You are correct, "Sporting" model, I'll need to check for those storage compartments tomorrow when I'm at the museum, and if things go as planned you need to come visit for a ride this season. thanks, Bill
  2. Thank you, All; Just ordering new tires to get our Sport Touring on the road for the summer; we hope to be driving museum visitors around the neighborhood off and on this season. Come see us! www.sealcoveautomuseum.org Bill
  3. Does anyone have a source to find the weight of the above vehicle? Your help would be appreciated. Bill, www.Sealcoveautomuseum.org
  4. Thanks for the response; any large 60's Humber would be pretty similar to mine except, possibly, for the quad headlights and some trim and mechanical differences. I'm guessing that we've met, or at least that I've met your wife. I'd appreciate any contact information relative to any 60's Humbers. Please feel free to respond to my e-mail at the museum. bill@sealcoveautomuseum.org. Best wishes, Bill
  5. Nope, Mine was sold by Rootes Motors, Park Avenue, NY; it's left hand drive, ,Borg Warner T-35 Automatic, power steering, Power Brakes, 3000 cc Hemi, Same family as Hillman and Sunbeam, and was about $4600.00 FOB, NY in 1964. A real Anglophile car, the company started with bikes, motorcycles, etc. in the late 1800's and lasted through the late 1970's. Pretty much the only parts in mine that aren't original are tires, hoses, belts, radio, brake shoes and pads, and other service items; I even had the original calipers and brake servo rebuilt. When I finally get the carburation straightened out it will be visiting the local shows and the auto museum I work at during the season. (www.sealcoveautomuseum.org) Bill
  6. Anyone out there with a Humber? I'm working on a 1964 Humber Super Snipe that I acquired form the original buyer about 18 months ago; its in amazing original condition with less than 59,000 miles on the clock. Hemi, auto, PS,PB and a 20 year old repaint. Be interesting to know who/what's out there. Bill
  7. I'm sure this is long gone, but...... if not I'm with a small brass era museum in Maine and we have a Rauch & Lange; a charger, even if not operable, would look great between our two electrics. check out www.sealcoveautomuseum.com Thanks, Bill
