Introduced in 1929, the Humber 16/50 replaced its ageing 14/40 predecessor, with a smooth six‑cylinder 2110cc inlet‑over‑exhaust engine cylinder. New features included coil ignition, a mechanical fuel pump and Bendix brakes. The high quality machine was aimed at professional and middle class motorists of the era.

This smart‑looking example was registered in June 1930 and was last MoT'd in 2012. The odometer currently shows 2,791 miles.

The Humber comes with a wonderful history folder, including quite a bit of correspondence dating back to 1930 between Humber ltd, T.B. Andre & Co and the first owner A.G. Slater Cook Esq concerning some work covered under guarantee. It makes fascinating reading.
