1974 Humber Sceptre Mk3 (HolbayConversion) For Sale

I bought this car last year and have thoroughly enjoyed driving it over 1500 miles. However, there are other cars I would like to try and so it is time to move it on. It drives beautifully having been set up and tuned by the previous owner, a Holbay and Weber specialist. The bodywork and underside are in perfect condition. No welding has been carried out, nor has it been needed. The car is recognised by specialists in the Arrow range as being one of the best examples of the model. The current Mileage is 33700. This will increase slightly, as I prefer to use my cars, weather permitting, rather than leave them standing. I have the original carburettors, rocker box, manifold and cylinder head, which will come with the sale, should a future owner wish to return it to original specification. This is an awesome car, it turns heads and is really fun to drive. It is situated in North Yorkshire. History & Provenance Purchased new on 1st June 1974 in Inverurie Scotland from Chrysler UK Dealer David MacLennan in Aberchirder. The car was kept for 9 years and was then transferred to the owner’s son (Legal Owner 2) on 1 June 1983. It was serviced that week and used sporadically for 5 years before being garaged. It was off the road until July 2011 when it was MOTd but only did 379 miles over the following year and was MOTd again the following July (2012) and sold to Legal Owner 3, who converted it to Holbay spec. He kept it until 8/11/2014 and sold it at auction to a private car collector, Legal Owner 4. It was kept in his private collection until he sold it at auction. It was bought by a Car Dealer who sold it it to a local retired man, (Legal Owner 5), who had it serviced MOTd on 21/6/2016 and “undersealed”. He couldn’t manage the steering nor the twin 40DCOE Webers and returned it within 2 weeks. It was then purchased by Legal owner 6 on 24/11/2016. He extensively refurbished the DCOEs and retuned the engine to peak performance with a polished Holbay Marathon Head. I bought the car in October 2017 Legal owner 7.
