The name Humber Scepter was used for three generations of cars built by the former British manufacturer Rootes Group between 1963 and 1976. The first generation from the 1960s was a 4-door luxury saloon built from 1963 to 1965, based on the Hillman Super Minx, similar to the Singer Vogue. The Humber Sceptre shares essential body panels with its sister models. However, it differs significantly in some details. In particular the windscreen, which is larger and extends into the top of the roof. Adopted from the “forward look” of the US Chrysler range from around 1957, in English it is called a wraparound windshield. Until production ceased in 1967, the Humber, unlike the Hillman and Singer, retained the sloping roof line with the panoramic rear window. The two paired double headlights and the smaller, vertically grilled radiator grille were also different in design. The engine version with 60 kW (82 hp) was significantly more powerful. A manual four-speed gearbox transmitted the power to the rear wheels. The overdrive for third and fourth gear, which could be operated from the steering wheel, was part of the standard equipment.
