Classic car collector puts the Queen Mother's vintage Humber up for sale alongside rest of his £250,000 fleet

  • Allan Marshall, 64, has been collecting the classic vehicles for more than 40 years but is selling them due to spiralling costs 
  • Among the star-studded array are the Super Snipe MkIII, which once belonged to the Queen Mother, and a vehicle almost used by Madonna in a 2011 feature
  • The vast Humber fleet is estimated between £200,000 and £250,000 and will be sold through Hansons Auctioneers in April
  •  

    A classic car collector has put his entire fleet of vintage Humber vehicles up for sale, including the old school motor that belonged to the Queen Mother.

    Also among the star-studded array is a model linked to Madonna, but Mr Marshall is selling the cars due to the spiralling costs of maintaining them.

    The crown jewel of his collection is the Super Snipe MkIII, which was used to take the Queen Mother to church during the reign of her husband, King George VI.

Allan Marshall, 64, began buying the vehicles more than 40 years ago and currently owns 16, which are kept on display in Hull

Another vehicle included in the group is the Snipe once owned by Edward VIII and his wife - it was due to feature in W.E, a film based on the couple's life and starring Madonna

I think having a fleet of classic cars all the same color is an extremely cool idea! What's that about 400 k American?

To me that's a huge negative...unless the intent was to suggest that the car narrowly escaped being used by madonna...which would then be a huge positive.
