This Star Sapphire has formed part of a private collection for eight years, during which time it has undergone a high-end professional rebuild, we understand at a cost of approximately £85,000. The bodywork was stripped back to bare metal and restored, and all chrome was re-plated. The interior was completely renovated, with new upholstery, a new headlining and new carpets. The dashboard and all timber door cappings were removed and restored, and the door cards and interior trims were renewed. The boot compartment requires some minor detailing, but otherwise, a superb example.
Mechanically, we are told that there are no known faults and the Armstrong performs as one would expect; indeed, the engine runs like the proverbial sewing machine!
Since the restoration was completed, the motor car has been much admired at classic shows and events. Supplied with its V5C registration certificate, this Star Sapphire would be difficult to replicate and has become available due to a change in circumstances.
