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 1935, the 17hp Armstrong-Siddeley featured a six-cylinder overhead-valve engine of 2,394cc coupled to the firm's characteristic Wilson pre-selector four-speed gearbox. Three different chassis lengths enabled the 17hp to cater for sporting motorists, owner-drivers and the carriage trade, while mechanically the cars were conventional for the period, with semi-elliptic springs all round and mechanical brakes. Production of all types had amounted to just 4,260 cars by the time production ceased in 1939.

    Manufactured in December 1935, this Armstrong-Siddeley 17hp carries saloon coachwork by Burlington, a company acquired by Siddeley-Deasy in 1913 and which later served as Armstrong-Siddeley's in-house coachbuilder. 'CVX 627' was first registered in 1936 to Mr W Gibbard, a director of the Tate & Lyle sugar company, who is understood to have been the son-in-law of Lady Lyle. Lady Lyle made local shopping trips in the car, driven by her chauffeur. The Armstrong-Siddeley subsequently passed to T&L's chief accountant and then in 1960 to his assistant, Mr W M Matcham. In 1987 'CVX 627' came on the open market and was purchased by a Mr S Mann, of Sweffling Hall Farm, Saxmundham. The current vendor purchased the Armstrong-Siddeley at Bonhams' Harrogate Sale in November 2010 (Lot 747). Refurbished in 1994, it was described in 2010 as in generally good original condition and was said to drive very well. Since its acquisition by the vendor, 'CVX 627' has formed part of his private collection, seeing little use while benefiting from repaired door frames, refurbished paintwork, and revived interior leather trim. Running and driving well, the car is offered with history file, sundry restoration invoices and a V5C registration document.
