Humber 8hp

On Display

In 1959, Lord Montagu bought this car as a wedding present for his wife. Note how the passengers are given no protection from bad weather and road dust; the monocle windscreen is for the driver only. Headlamps are acetylene gas with additional oil side-lamps. For sunny days, ladies could use the parasol carried in the wicker basket, but not when travelling at speed!

This car was driven by Sally Ann Howes, the actress who played Truly Scrumptious, in the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
