“I Never should’ve bought that car…”
Well, here it is… My pride and joy — A 1960 Humber Hawk, (Series 1a). With the original 2.3 litre 4‑banger under the hood, 4 speed manual column change.
Had it for (well over!) 5 years now, working on it as and when I’ve had the time, (which really isn’t that often)
The plan is to go for a mild kustom look, with a subtle lowering job, shaved handles and badges, and some Watson-style scallops. That’s after the considerable rust-repair, which I’m most of the way through, I’m happy to report.
I’ve put a build thread over on the HAMB, mainly so I can track my progress — but I’ve received a lot of encouraging comments as a result — that has helped keep my ‘mojo’ going in the long, cold winter months…
