The Sceptre MK III was introduced in 1967 as part of the Rootes “Arrow” range. This model was the best-appointed version with Humber's tradition of building luxury cars and features wood-veneer fascia, full instrumentation, adjustable steering column, vinyl roof and the more powerful version of the 1,725cc engine.
Milestone Classics are always looking for classic family saloons from the 60s/70s and we are delighted to market this superior specification 1971 Humber Sceptre. The car has spent nearly all her life in and around Dorset & Somerset where she was first registered and is a real credit to the four previous owners who have clearly cherished her.
Finished in the rare factory colour option of Pewter the paint presents well with a deep shine, straight panel gaps and good chrome. The contrasting red interior upholstery really suits the car and the original deep pile carpets, wood veneers and fully loaded dashboard make for an inviting driving experience.
The large history file dating back to the 1980’s contains lots of invoices, MOT’s, car show prize certificates etc. The engine was replaced in 1989 (Chrysler reconditioned unit running on unleaded fuel) and has covered around 35,000 miles since.
On the road the rare option automatic gearbox is a delight and the Humber does not disappoint easily coping with modern road conditions – the previous owner described her as his perfect long-distance cruiser.
We have been genuinely impressed with how competently the Sceptre performs offering an engaging drive for the driver wanting a superior level of comfort and we expect her to find a new home quickly.
