Dear Forum, first of all, thank you very much for adding me as a member. My name is Helmut Thöny from Austria. I am a retired goldsmith with a passion for old cars, specially Jaguar. Following your forum as a guest for several months, I wanted to share my restored Humber 1601 with you. I worked several month on restauration. Found this gem in Switzerland and it has no deep rust. It has only 2450 miles on and is the only one in Austria.
Looking forward to your comments

Humber1601 Hello Helmut. Welcome to the forum. That looks like a very nice military Humber. You are lucky to have found one with such low mileage. I have a friend who is a Humber enthusiast. I tried to interest him when two of this model Humber were offered for sale but he refused as he prefers Humber Snipes and Super Snipes. He also collects literature and last time I discussed it with him he said he had a copy of every brochure handbook parts book and workshop manual that the Humber company produced since World War Two.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,
Don't know a lot about Jags, my uncle had a E type for as long as I can remember, it spent most of it's life up on blocks waiting to be a collectors item
It was sold this year as far as I know, just before my Uncle passed away I wonder if it will ever be a road going car again, it still ran okay but hadn't been driven in 40 years and was undercover the whole time, kinda sad really
It didn't take me long to go of on a tangent, oops
Anyway welcome and dont be afraid to share what ever you want, you would of noticed we talk about anything except politics and religion
Your better to die trying than live on your knees begging
