Extra Information Supplied Covers The 1600cc/1725cc
The Humber Sceptre was introduced in 1963, two years after the Hillman super minx on which it was based, Also sharing much in common with the Singer Vogue, the Sceptre differed from these cars in that Rootes designers gave it a different roof and different rear bodywork, giving the car a sleeker look than its stablemates.
Originally this design had been intended to replace the sunbeam Rapier, hence the rather more sporty appearance than previous Humbers, Humber being the most luxuries marque within the rootes group, the Sceptre was well equipped and stylish, featuring front disc brakes and overdrive and a full complement of instruments power came from a 1.6 litre four-cylinder engine producing 80bhp.
ORIGNS OF THE HUMBER MOTOR CARS: In order to trace the development of the Humber motor car it is necessary to go back to the 1887 when Thomas Humber formed a partnership with the prominent 19th century financier, Harry j. Lawson. In subsequent year Lawson appears to have largely taken over day-to-day running of the Humber compony, and it was under his auspices that the first moves towards motor car production were made.
Lawson had himself begun his working life as a cycle maker, but quickly recognized the potential of motor vehicles
He had set up the British Motor Syndicate with the aim of buying up as many existing and future patents as possible relating to motor manufacturing – both in this country and, to a lesser extent, abroad. Patented innovations concerning the new ‘science’ of motor engineering were numerous at this time, and it was the British Motor Syndicates desire to gain a monopoly in what Lawson saw as the next big growth industry.
