This Star Sapphire has formed part of a private collection for a decade, during which time it has undergone a high-end professional restoration.
The majority of the engineering work was performed by Adrian Linscott of Torquay and comprised of the fitting of a new bulkhead, wiring loom, fuel tank and two-heater matrix. The radiator was reconditioned. The rear axle was removed and new road springs, manufactured by Jones Springs, were installed. The front suspension and steering systems were also overhauled, with new adjustable front shock absorbers fitted. The braking system was updated with mostly new components.
The bodywork was stripped to bare metal, all panels and fittings removed and repainted to an exceptional standard by Colin Groom Classic Restorers of Devon. All brightwork was rechromed by electroplater Adam Howes in the Midlands, and the moulding retaining clips were handmade.
The interior has also been entirely renovated, with new upholstery, a new headlining and new carpets. The dashboard and timber door cappings have been removed and restored, and the door cards and interior trims renewed. The boot compartment could require some minor detailing, but otherwise, a truly lovely example.
After some searching, new information on the Armstrong-Siddeley has come to light and the history file now includes A.S.O.C correspondence confirming that the first owner of 967 XUV was J. Hart (Footwear) Ltd of London, who was supplied the motor car by dealership Pass and Joyce Ltd, also of London. Production records are also supplied, together with images, a photocopy handbook, a factory spares list, a workshop manual, wiring diagrams, invoices and the V5C registration certificate.
We understand that not only is the Star Sapphire cosmetically superb, it also drives extremely well and has a ‘good turn of speed’.
