1930 Humber 16/50 Saloon Exception Condition For Sale

1930 Humber 16/50 Saloon LG 4624 was first registered on the 14th June 1930 and supplied new to a Chartered Accountant, Mr A.E Slater-Cook who practiced in Liverpool. Correspondence from Humber in 1930 addressed paperwork to various addresses held by Mr Slater-Cook in Liverpool, Frodsham and The Aldelphi Hotel in Harrogate. Interestingly, he did not trust delivery drivers to observe the correct running in speed so he collected the car himself from the Humber Works in Coventry. The 16/50 was also Chauffeur driven , Blocks were also fitted to the control pedals to enable his daughter to drive the car at a cost of Seven Shillings and Sixpence , they still remain today ! The Humber stayed in the family from 1930 to 1964, the only keeper change being a transfer into his daughter’s name in 1954. From the continuation brown ‘buff’ logbook we know the car spent a period from 1964 to the early 1970’s in the Birmingham area having been in the North West for the first 34 years. There is a letter in the history dated in 2012 from the previous owner who purchased the car from Miss Euphemia Slater-Cook in 1964 adding to the wonderful early correspondence still supplied with this beautiful Humber motor car such as original receipt, newspaper cuttings and various letters from Humber. Purchased in 1989 buy a Humber enthusiast who kept the 16/50 for 28 years covering 12,000 miles in the car. Excellent history records were added to an already substantial file. A notebook forms a superb mileage log detailing every journey over 28 years and to accompany this are a selection of MOT's dating back to the 1980's and many tax discs. The Humber has proven to be a wonderful motor car regularly used and consistently reliable. Prior to purchasing the car in 1989, it had been subject of a major restoration to include rebuilt bodywork, rebuilt engine with new liners, new clutch and clutch plate and various re-chrome brightwork.
