Latest News: 27/08/2019 - New Stores Opening Times

Welcome to the Armstrong Siddeley Owners Club

Centenary2019 marks the centenary of Armstrong Siddeley car production.

Celebration events will be held throughout the year. The highlight was the largest gathering of Armstrong Siddeley cars for decades in Coventry on July 14th; 103 in total. You can find out more about the event on our news page.

Car Of The Month

Hurricane1948

1948 Hurricane 3-Position DHC

This fine Hurricane owned by Steve Westby is a two-litre, straight-six model. After many years with two families, this car was used as a wedding car before retiring to Somerset. It's career as a wedding car meant a number of modifications, not all of which would be approved of by purists! These included: -

• A gearbox from a later AS model providing overdrive for easier cruising.
• Uprated suspension using parts from a Mercedes van!
• A change of colour from green to cream.
• Indicators to replace the trafficators (which no longer operate).

Thanks to the fitment of overdrive, the car will cruise happily at 70 mph, though 60 is a bit more peaceful. Having owned the car for three years, Steve has gradually been experimenting with longer journeys and earlier this year went up to Derby. Hopefully one day he'll be brave enough to take it on a European tour.

The car is currently in need of some fettling and possible jobs for this winter include some paintwork and bodywork repairs, rechroming of some parts, suspension attention and some possible rust repairs.
