Footnotes

  • Armstrong Siddeley was created in 1919 by the fusion of the mighty Armstrong Whitworth engineering combine and the Coventry based Siddeley-Deasy company. Introduced in 1923, the 14.4hp 'Four-Fourteen' was the firm's first four-cylinder model, all previous Armstrong-Siddeleys having been sixes. The overhead-valve engine displaced 1,852cc and drove the wheels via a single dry-plate clutch, in-unit three-speed gearbox and spiral bevel axle. Mechanically the cars were conventional for the period, with quarter-elliptic springs all round at first (semi-elliptic later) and mechanical brakes, the latter being fitted to all four wheels from mid-1925. To differentiate the four from the more expensive sixes, the 14hp came with a flat-fronted radiator rather than Armstrong-Siddeley's characteristic V-shaped item, but nevertheless was considered worthy to carry the marque's distinctive Sphinx badge. In common with other A-S chassis, the various models were name after well-known places in Britain, with prices ranging from £360 up to £485. Comparatively cheap for a quality motor car, the 14hp was a considerable success for Armstrong-Siddeley, in excess of 13,000 being sold up to 1929. Survivors though, are few.

    This Armstrong-Siddeley 14hp saloon has been resident in the York area for most of its life, serving as a taxicab for a while, and was kept on showroom display at Greenside Garage, Acomb for a period of time during the 1980s/1990s. An older restoration (see photographs on file), the car is finished in maroon with beige cord upholstery, while the lovely interior, which boasts railway carriage-style windows in the rear doors, is particularly worthy of note. The vendor describes the car as in generally fair/good condition, reporting that the electrical system has been upgraded with an alternator and that the starter motor and dynamo have been reconditioned. An intermittent magneto fault was rectified earlier this year. Offered with old-style logbook, current MoT/tax and V5 document, 'YU 4561' represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a charismatic model from a prominent British make at relatively modest cost. An album containing photographs of the restoration and one of the first owner is included in the sale.
