Humber Limited had an important year during 1923, with the adoption across the range of new inlet over exhaust engines, replacing the previously adopted sidevalve units, along with the introduction of a new luxury small car, the 985cc 8hp (later called the 8/18). Very much a ‘big car in miniature’, it was generously equipped by the standards of the day. Developed through the 1056cc, 9/20 to the improved 9/28hp introduced in 1929.

Finished in traditional Mole/ Cream livery with Tan hide interior and reported to be in good order throughout. In its current custodianship since 2015 with ownership records dating back to 1956, 'UU 4537' is known to both the Humber Register and the VSCC. In regular use and well maintained in recent years, 'UU' is reported to drive well and this surely represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a very tidy example of the well-respected Humber 9/28 in Light Tourer iteration.

A file of paperwork accompanies 'UU' and includes the original handbook and sales brochure, V5C and VE60, old MOTs and the current MOT (May 2023,), a 2014 Humber Workshop Report and subsequent invoices to covering an engine overhaul and a quantity of invoices covering various ongoing service works, workshop notes, sketches and so on.
