Meet The Cars

It has been said - ``On great occasions, Humber takes Pride of Place``. Although primarily serving Adelaide, Melbourne and surrounds, if you are a bride in Victoria or regional SA never fear, Macphersons is well positioned to come to you with your selection of up to 3 vehicles for your very own motorcade ! Just send us an email or better still call Timothy to discuss your options.

Clyde (1760 SV)

Mark 3 Humber Pullman Limousine, built in England 1952, now fully restored to its former glory in black and plum livery.

A rare and unique limousine, he is the pride of our fleet at Macphersons’ Chauffeured Cars.

Clyde makes the ideal choice as a bridal car, due to his capacious accommodation for bride and groom, with glass partition between driver and occupants.

You may also choose to fold open the occasional seats which are great for flower girls or bridesmaids. This transforms this beautiful car into a 7 seater cruiser.

Bonnie (1759 SV)

Mark 3 Humber Super Snipe, built in England 1951, now fully restored to her former glory in Black and plum livery

These luxurious cars were well appointed and the largest sedans on England’s roads in the 1950s. And with matching livery, Bonnie makes an ideal ‘partner in crime’ for Clyde.

Back in the day these distinguished saloons were typically the transport of choice for bank managers and executives, or wealthy families. They were also well represented in Britain’s corridors of power and employed by the military’s top brass (learn more in the Humber pedigree). Bonnie holds 5 passengers.

Bernie SV

Mark 2 Humber Super Snipe, built in England 1948, now fully restored to his former glory in black and burgundy livery.

For the larger bridal party, or simply added street presence, Bernie will quite happily accompany Bonnie and Clyde in any romantic get-away. Bonnie and Bernie are almost identical twins, but Bonnie’s brother Bernie comes equipped with a sunroof. This is quite a nice feature for country drives, look up at the autumn leaves as you wind your way through the Adelaide Hills, or view the very tops of the skyscrapers of Adelaide’s CBD! Bernie holds 5.

Al Capone

Mark 1 Humber Super Snipe saloon, made in England 1946, now restored to his former glory in Black and Plum livery.

Reminiscent of a bygone ‘gangster’ era, Al Capone would have made quite a quick getaway car in his day! He also has a sunshine roof. Al Capone holds up to 4 passengers.

Gambino SV

Humber Snipe saloon, made in England 1938

Also fully restored, Gambino would love to get into trouble with his almost identical gangster cousin, Al Capone. The two make a lovely pair or they can equally partner up with the other cars and look stunning in the photographs on your special day.

Why not enquire about our package deals and choose 3 or more vehicles for added street presence? Imagine your very own motorcade on your special day! Gambino holds 4
