Vintage PR Shot: I Say, Is That The New Humber Super Snipe?

This PR shot of a 1953 Willys Aero in front of (a big photo of) London’s Tower Bridge is an interesting choice, as the Aero does rather look like one of a number of British cars from the late ’50s.



The Super Snipe popped into my head because I love that name, but it does rather look a fair bit like the Aero, and has similar dimensions too. And it was powered by a 2.6 L, as was the Aero. How many more similarities can we come up with? This generation Super Snipe arrived in 1958, five years after the Aero.
