I think the Humber Sceptre MK 1 is the best of the bunch..I know it has the smaller engine than the MK 2 but looks far better.
Pippin red and black interior is the one I like.
Anyone out there with one.?

I had one in 1965 and did over 100,000 miles in it. They are great cars in Mk 1 form.

Is this Pippin Red Gresham?



This one lives on a Scottish Island and is a superb example.

One of the best colours for the car I think. They certainly had character in those days.
And a little american styling for conservative britain at the time.

This Coventry registered example does the shows around the Clacton area.

The owner was considering selling it at the time these photos were taken last June but there was already a dealer sniffing round it so probably punted on now. Rolling Eyes
