1960 Armstrong Siddeley Star Sapphire
Chassis Number: C330874
Engine Number: 320886
Steering: Right Hand Drive
This is one of the very last Star Sapphires. There were only another 28 manufactured after this car.
We imported it from Ireland in 2012 and have driven it for about 10,000 miles since then. Always on good quality roads.
It is fitted with the most superb Webasto full length sunroof. We have driven at 110kph with the sunroof open and my wife, who hates wind through her hair, loved it.
The paintwork is in excellent condition but it is not original. The car was originally Sable (something of a brown colour). The colour was changed at the time that the Webasto sunroof was installed - circa 2001.
We have a complete history of the ownership of the vehicle from new - and that will be supplied to the successful purchaser.
About the only non-original item in the Star is the clock. We had its mechanicals changed to electronic a few years ago. It still looks original - but it works.
When the Star arrived in Australia it was showing evidence of the salt roads in the UK. This has all been removed so that there is no sign of such rust in either the bodywork or the chassis.
The car runs perfectly on normal 95 octane unleaded fuel.
The front disks were worn and have been replaced.
Internally the rear passengers have access to picnic trays which are in excellent condition.
The toolkit in the boot is complete and fitted with the original tools.
We will also send with the car all of our collection of spare parts.
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!
We will pay all the costs in having the Star transported back to Southhampton. That will be in a Roll On Roll Off ship - not in a container.
