Welcome to the Armstrong Siddeley Owners Club

Car Of The Month

1933 20hp Burlington Sport Special

Sport SpecialThe chassis for this 20hp was laid down by works on 31st May 1933 and was one of only 4 with saloon sports body by Burlington. Agents Warwick Wright took delivery on 14th July 1933 and it sold on 31st December 1933 to Major Sir George Aylwen (who collected the car from the factory on 12th July 1933, Guarantee number 1332) Major G Aylwen became Lord Mayor of London in 1948.

The car was used in the RAC Hastings rally in March 1934. In 1986 it was dismantled and restoration started. Good works were done to the chassis and engine before the restoration stalled for years. The car changed hands a few times until 2013 when it was bought by current owner. The original body was too far damaged to be restored and was subsequently lost so the decision was made to recreate a LeMans/Brooklands style racing body to reflect the age and aeronautic association of Armstrong Siddeley. Many original parts were fortunately retained from the original body for the details. All aluminium body was painstakingly built to plans by Brooklands Bodycraft of Oxford and later additions by Vintage Wings and Radiators of Manchester.

The Armstrong Siddeley Sports Special is roomy for the driver with plenty of leg space and elbow
width. The exhaust note is superb and as sporty as the car looks. The long stroke 6 cylinder 3190cc engine is very robust and will cruise at 60 to 70 very happily. It is capable of going faster than that! The brakes are good and original. The Wilson gearbox works well and is a joy to use.
