The company was created following the purchase by Armstrong Whitworth of Siddeley-Deasy, a manufacturer of fine motor cars that were marketed to the top echelon of society. After the merge of companies, this focus on quality continued throughout in the production of cars, aircraft engines, gearboxes for tanks and buses, rocket and torpedo motors, and the development of railcars. Company mergers and takeovers with Hawker Aviation and Bristol Aero Engines saw the continuation of the car production which ceased in August 1960.
The company was absorbed into the Rolls-Royce conglomerate which was interested in the aircraft and aircraft engine business. Eventually, the remaining spares and all motor car interests were sold to the Armstrong Siddeley Owners Club Ltd, which now owns the patents, designs, copyrights and trademarks, including the name Armstrong Siddeley.
This 1938 Armstrong Siddeley 14 was originally supplied through Wadham Stringer Southampton in March 1948, and is believed to have been used by Admiral Sir Arthur Dowding between 1938 and 1945 as his Navy staff car. The bumper corners are still painted white, the headlamps have the wartime blackout blinds, and the number 67 is painted on the boot lid. The car is described by the vendor to be in good condition and to drive very well. The bodywork is very original but the car has been fitted with a 1600cc Perkins diesel engine that still retains the original Pre-select gearbox.
