1932 Armstrong Siddeley Four Door Saloon
Reg. no. GY 2338
Chassis no. 66365
Engine no. t.b.a.
Formed in 1919 after industrial giant Armstrong Whitworth purchased car manufacturer Siddeley-Deasy, Armstrong-Siddeley’s subsequent output consisted of high-quality, well-engineered cars – as well as aeroplane engines and, later, aircraft, which were also renowned for their quality. The first car the company produced was the gargantuan 30hp, and the distinctive radiator shape of this car was to become an Armstrong-Siddeley feature for the rest of the company’s time in the industry. In 1929, Armstrong-Siddeleys first became available with the innovative Wilson pre-selector gearbox, and these gearboxes, manufactured by the company’s subsidiary Self-Changing Gears Limited, were fitted to many other British cars during the 30s, and were available on the company’s own cars until the end of production in 1960.
This 1932 Armstrong Siddeley represents the kind of car for which the company was best known – a high-quality, luxurious saloon, but not flashy in any way – rather, understated and dignified. At some point in the 1990s the car was restored and fitted with a Triumph 1850 engine and automatic gearbox, meaning it should be extremely easy to drive in modern traffic. Remaining in good all-round condition, the car has however not been used much recently, so some light recommissioning is recommended. It comes with a V5C.
