*Cherished Humber Six Light Saloon
*Extensive history
*Long-term ownership


Launched on 1 October 1926 for the 1927 model year, the 14/40 was a medium-sized saloon that featured a 2050cc four-cylinder engine (which was essentially a scaled down version of the six-cylinder unit). Only 2,240 examples of the 14/40 were produced by the Humber Road factory between 1926 and 1929. The engine delivered good torque, being a traditional long-stroke motor, and reached a top speed of 60mph.

First registered on 1 July 1926, this Oxford Blue Humber 6 Light Saloon is a delightful matching numbers example that has been in a very long-term ownership. The car is well known in the Humber Club, and is now being reluctantly for sale by the vendor. A comprehensive history file is included with the vehicle, featuring service logs and bills for over 40 years, and correspondence dating back 50 years. The car has been well-maintained and cherished by the owner, and is presented in a lovely, gently patinated condition that is ready for use with the engine recently being recommissioned. The original 1927 RF60 registration document is also included, along with the buff log book that details the ownership right through to the years when this car was bought new almost 100 years ago.
