A great picture of a 1950s Humber with its driver in appropriate uniform.
Sent over by David is this great picture of a Humber Pullman limo, the picture probably dating to the early 1960s if the rear fin of the Farina bodied Cambridge in the background is anything to go by. These Humbers (Phase 2, 3 and 4) were built between 1948 and 1954, the final Phase IV cars featuring an overhead valve engine, replacing the earlier sidevalve unit. I'm not sure which particular variant we've got here. Whatever, the chauffeur looks suitable chuffed with his handsome charge. Does CJX 436 survive? this registration number doesn't appear on the DVLA website so chances are it is no more, perhaps destroyed forever in a banger race somewhere??
