Humber 14/40 Tourer For Sale (1928)1928 Humber 14/40 Tourer in Ivory and Brown with Cream leather interior. Present owner for 24 years during which time it has been carefully looked after and driven approximately 10,000 miles. Fully restored in early 80s and the bodywork resprayed in 2011.
The whole car is in excellent working condition. The original handbook is available plus a workshop copy of it for use in the garage. Various tools are included including the original jack, wheel nut brace and oil can. Additionally it is fitted with a “Motometer” on the radiator cap to keep an eye on the coolant temperature, and a spare petrol can and carrier mounted on top of the battery box.
The hood can be used fully up with the wind-up windows in place for full weather protection, or with some or all of the windows down to create that fresh air feeling, or the hood fully down to really catch the breeze!
A tonneau cover comes with the car to cover up when it is left with the roof down, and can be opened at the front only so that the rear passenger area can be kept covered if required.
The magneto was rewound in 2010 so it should now be fully operational for some considerable time. Also in 2010 the Auto Vac body was fully repaired as it was beginning to rust through. Both upper and lower coolant castings were replaced some years ago, the originals having lasted about 70 years or so, this being another area that should not give any trouble for many more years to come.
The car has been regularly maintained and the oil changed very recently.
The present owner believes that the previous owner purchased the car from the family of the car’s original owner having discovered it in a barn, making it presently only in its 3rd ownership. Pictures are available of its condition when the car was found, and during its 1980s restoration.
The Humber Register is a very active and valuable back up service for its members. They will happily provide technical information and advise on the availability of any parts required, as well as organising meetings for owners and their cars. Many back issues of their magazine are available to the new owner.
This is a stunningly beautiful car that has to be seen to be fully appreciated. It is greatly admired whenever it provides transport at weddings, for which it is very suitable.
The car is situated in Poole, Dorset and is available for viewing by appointment.
