Humber Sceptre (by Rootes-company), which later had a long life as a Paykan in the Iran.

How do you know it's a Humber and not a Hillman, Sunbeam or Singer? Looks pretty basic, I'd be more for Hillman.

I just took this name, because except "Paykan" it's the only other name I know for this car. Under the name Humber a very few ones were sold in Germany (by Simca-dealers). The brand-names Hillman and Singer are unknown over here, with Sunbeam the fans over here have the only assiciation "Sunbeam Tiger" and "Sunbeam Horizon"

Actually one single Sceptre is running in Germany - a Humber.

We would have to find out what name was used for the North American market...

PS. Wikipedia says Sunbeam Arrow (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillman_Hunter) - how appropriate ;)

Thanks for the informative link - is there any other car in history with so many different names? I thought, that the Opel Kadett-based car was the champion in this run, but this Sunbeam/Humber,Hillman.... should be a favourite, too.

The publicity material of the Arrow shows them with a Sunbeam script on the right of the bootlid ( it doesn't seem to be the case of this one ) and with Arrow scripts on the front doors. Nevertheless, the Arrow received these front seats with integrated headrests for the 1969 model year.

I've one seen ONE of these in the USA....and it was in a small wrecking yard with...are you ready for this??...1972 licence plates!!!(Most cars in this yard were 1950-65 models,with 1971-75 tags on them....guy only opened up on weekends,in nice weather,and when he felt like it!! He also had a 1957(?)Taunus 17m and two Borgwards(one an Isabella Coupe..rare even in Germany I recall??)....700+ cars,most stacked three high.)Car was almost intact after 25+ yrs in the yard!! (My guess: It quit running & they junked it due to lack of parts??) Bad News: Old man that ran it passed away,heirs sold property,almost every car got crushed :( :mad:

Some months ago there was an article about the last existing Humber Sceptre in Germany (probably it was never more than that one running ever over here) in an classic car-magazine. The owner said, that the biggest problems would be the unbelievable bad quality of the car. He waw shocked, how careless and what a botch-up this car is. And this don't depends on the age and the previous owners (after the first buyer, an old man, the Sceptre stands around, disregarded for several years)
Parts are problematical, too, but available in other countries, so not the biggest thing.


The Iranian Paykan shall not be better, I've heard from a guy from Teheran (who own one of two K 70 over there). He has always avoided to buy a homecountry-made car.

Comment from Sunbar on /vehicle_147442-Sunbeam-Arrow-1967.html "In North America they were sold as Sunbeam Arrows. For the US market, it initally appeared in 1967 as a rebadged Hillman Hunter. For 1968, a station wagon appeared, derived from the Hunter estate car. For 1969-70, it was basically a Singer Gazelle, but with the 1725cc engine and a Minx grille. The Canadian Arrow of this period was more closely related to the Hillman Minx."

Chrome trim here suggests the initial 1967 Hunter base rather than the 1969 Gazelle.

I'm still amazed at how bad shape it is for a six year old car. It looks abandoned.
