Vintage HUMBER PROJECT - with current 4 -page V5C
IDEAL ENTRY INTO VINTAGE MOTORING - maybe suit young enthusiast on a budget.
I have known the VSCC member owner for nearly 40 years - this project languishing in the owner's hands for 50 years now - started but in no way finished - while he forged a successful career in vintage car restoration, clearly with no time for his own restoration! Less expensive than a Austin Seven project
Current ownership since 1970 - selling as one package.
1929/30 Humber 9/28 chassis with running gear - no engine or gearbox - suggest Model A Ford engine - this will make it go!
Humber 9/28 Dimensions : Wheelbase : 8’6”, Track 4’0 ½”, if with body the overall length would be 12’0”
THE OTHER HUMBER 9/20 CHASSIS :- 1925/8 Humber 9/20 chassis - as mounted on the shortened chassis, no engine or gearbox. Suggest Ford Model A engine!
Both 9/28 axles are at present fitted to the 9/20 chassis along with a 9/28 steering box and pedal unit.
The chassis was shortened some 50 years ago as a potential trials car by the owner while he was working as an apprentice at Crosthwaite & Gardiner. He mentions there is a slight twist on the 9/20’s left dumb iron.
Humber 9/20 Dimensions are shortened for this example for sale...
Dimensions are normally the same as a 9/28 except for 6" more in overall length on a standard 9/20
Wheelbase : 8’6”, Track 4’0 ½”
If with body the overall length would be 12’6”.
These Humbers celebrate 50 golden years together in the current ownership!
Many other Humber parts also available to suit any proposed project
For sale as one lot just off M4 / M5 area
