The Humber Imperial was the top of the range Humber. It was based on the Super Snipe series of cars and was built at the Rootes factory at Ryton-on-Dunsmore near Coventry.

The car on display is a series 5 Imperial. It was one of a fleet of cars owned by Taylor's of Warwick and was used as a hire car for special occasions.
