Humber 1971

Sceptre Mk III (R4 cyl, 1725 cc, 88 bhp)

Great Britain

£1,364 (incl. P.T.)
This is yet another variation on the medium-saloon theme as offered by Chrysler U.K., and is undoubtedly the most luxurious. It is virtually a Sunbeam Rapier in a Hunter body, finished to a rather high standard. It has the Rapier engine, which means the 1725 c.c. unit tuned to give 88 b.h.p., and top speed is a respectable 98 miles an hour. Brakes are servo-assisted and overdrive on top and third gears is a standard fitting, with an automatic box as an optional extra. The interior is beautifully finished, with extremely comfortable seats and dozens of luxury touches.
