Heraty Heritage {CLASSIC CARS} Information


HUMBER SCEPTRE Mark2 1966 Automatic

Full history of car exists. Currently (May 2004) being converted to run on unleaded fuel. Undergoing renewal of suspension bushes and minor welding for MOT. Road Fund Tax exempt. Metallic Gold but requiring respray - planned for June 2004.

Cylinder head skimmed and renovated; new head gasket. .


A full MOT is enjoyed by this classic car. Cheap to run on LPG, but will also run on petrol. This is an unusual car given the manual gearbox and lpg conversion by Autogas. Resprayed metallic maroon 3 years ago by an avid Motherwell supporter with all exposed surfaces resprayed - a nice car!

Currently sporting 4 new tyres and a history of improvements over the last 18 months.

  • Registered new on 1 August 1989, mileage just over 89,000.
  • Fitted with 2.9 litre engine and manual gearbox MOT 'd til March 2005
  • This car has been professionally fitted with LPG (propane gas) conversion which enables running costs to be halved at current LPG gas prices
  • The LPG conversion has a Certificate to prove the conversion is competent for insurance The car will run well on either petrol or LPG Gas
  • It does about 18mpg on LPG (which is equivalent to around 36 mpg based on petrol prices). LPG gas price is from only 33p a litre!!!
  • It has been resprayed by the previous owner less than 2 years ago as he was a fanatical Motherwell FC supporter
  • The original Jaguar radio/cassette is fitted, and the interior woodwork is in nice condition
  • Jaguar alloys and 4 new tyres keep this dream tight on the road
  • I have had the car serviced over the 18 months I've had it
  • The interior is really nice
  • The exterior is very good for age and chrome work is good
  • It has the full electric kit - electric windows all round; central locking; front seats power adjustable; computer sensor An immobiliser / car alarm has been added
  • A new battery fitted last year
  • New front brake pads fitted; new wheel bearings Cream leather interior - seats in very good condition - carpets A+ Electric aerial works fine
  • I have several spares which I'll include "if the price is right" including spare ECU's, and manuals
  • I have classic car insurance for this jaguar which is really cheap, and the car is valued at £2000 The LPG gas conversion itself is worth £1600 - a 100L tank holds an operational 80+litres of LPG
  • The oil pressure is very good
  • The few points of concern on the car are minor - A small dent on the front bonnet, front edge next to the front grill with slight associated bubbling; the armrest between the front seats is split on 1 side which is common and I just didn't get round to picking up another; the headliner is bowed slightly which is another common thing. There is slight rust bubbles on rear of nearside front wing
  • Email me if you've any questions. This is a fairly unusual car with its set up of manual transmission and lpg conversion. Autogas is widely available at many petrol stations. The 4 new tyres themselves are worth £400! I'll even fill the LPG tank for you! I wasn't wanting to sell this but I bought a Jaguar XJS as a project, together with a Humber Hawk and a Humber Sceptre so apart from needing space, I need respite from my family complaining about the number of cars I have!!! (Theres another 4 motors kicking about as well)


This is a 4 door saloon in mid grey metallic. Column gear change and a red interior with the original red leather bench seats. Currently awaiting completion of bodywork repairs and the final respray, much work has been done to the mechanical side of the car. many extra spares are also available.
