HUMBER 12 - $NZD50,000
1935 Humber 12 Vogue Pillarless Saloon
Humber is a dormant British automobile marque which could date its beginnings to Thomas Humbers bicycle company founded in 1868.
Following their involvement in Humber through Hillman in 1928, the Rootes brothers acquired a controlling interest and joined the Humber board in 1932 making Humber part of their Rootes Group.
Humber Twelve was virtually a new car for the 1935 selling season. It had a new chassis frame and the engine and radiator were mounted several inches farther forward than before. The range focused on luxury models such as the Humber Vogue, which was a special edition of the Humber 12.
