1949 Humber Hawk

A vintage English hawk.

Ted Tyson bought this 1972 Humber Hawk from Bill Mack, a wool classer. It was used for six years, and then sat abandoned on Ted’s farm for 22 years. In 2000 Ted restored the vehicle to its former glory. The Humber Hawk, by Rootes Australia, was advertised as a ‘preview of tomorrow’ with ‘synchromatic finger-tip gear control’.
