Footnotes

  • Introduced in 1929, Armstrong-Siddeley's 12hp model helped start the 1930s fashion for small sixes. The sidevalve engine displaced 1,236cc at first (1,434cc from 1931) and drove via a three-speed version of the firm's characteristic, Wilson-patented, pre-selector gearbox. For 1936 there was a new model, the Twelve Plus, which boasted an overhead-valve engine of 1,666cc and – initially – a body identical to that of its predecessor. A more streamlined style was phased in during 1936, at which time the model was re-designated as the 'Fourteen', the name change reflecting the larger and more powerful engine.

    This known ownership history of this Armstrong-Siddeley Fourteen dates back to March 1955 when it was registered to one Minod Framoze Lally according to the old-style continuation logbook on file. A letter to engineer John Reynolds dated November 1982 states that the engine 'runs very smoothly' despite a crack in the cylinder bock. In December 1983 the Fourteen was acquired by the late owner, who two months later purchased a replacement engine and gearbox from Peter Day of London N1. He joined the Armstrong-Siddeley Owners' Club in June 1984 and later that same year purchased six con-rods from them. Sadly, the car's restoration seems to have proceeded no further.

    Off the road for the last 30-plus years, this rare coachbuilt saloon is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. This potentially most rewarding project comes with V5 registration document and is sold without reserve.
