1927 Humber 14/40 Tourer - Charismatic Vintage Tourer
Another manufacturer who originally produced cycles, Humber made motor cars of high quality and during the period immediately after the Great War, a wide range was available from the 8/18 light car, through to large tourers and formal saloons.
A highly popular model was the 1.8 litre 12/25, which was superseded in 1926 by the 2.1 litre 14/40, which was listed until 1929 and was available with several different styles of coachwork, with the 4/5 seat Tourer being a particularly attractive model.
Presented here is a 1927 example of the 14/40 Tourer, of extremely smart appearance in maroon and black, with black buttoned leather upholstery.
In the last few years, work carried out on the car has included replacement of all water hoses, new water jacket and cylinder head gaskets fitted, front brakes overhauled and new hub seals. A new petrol tank was made and fitted, plus the dynamo was overhauled, along with general maintenance undertaken on a regular basis.
The car has very good weather equipment, with the advantage of Humber’s winding side screens used on this model - a very convenient feature. There is also a large touring trunk included.
In the file of paperwork accompanying the car there is a Service Data Information Sheet, a copy of the Driver’s Handbook and much additional information and numerous bills. There is also information from the Humber Register, who cater admirably for these fine Vintage motor cars.
A most charismatic motor car, it drives very well, cruising happily at around 45 mph plus and having a considerable presence on the road.
