1957 Hum­ber Hawk es­tate

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

The Hum­ber Hawk (and its posher, bet­ter-equipped Snipe and Su­per Snipe sib­lings) had a slightly State­side air, but still pleased the Bri­tish es­tab­lish­ment buyer not tempted by a Rover 3.0-litre sa­loon or coupé. How­ever, lack of a Rover es­tate played right into Hum­ber’s hands, with many end­ing up at coun­try piles, where their split tail­gates were ideal for shoot­ing party re­fresh­ments.

Char­ter­house’s ‘lon­groof’ Hawk is said to be a for­mer Lon­don to Cape Town en­durance rally con­tender, so it has stamina and rugged­ness. Sure to be wel­come at any event, there should be plenty of bid­ding for this old cam­paigner.
