Every production model is introduced using contemporary reports, road tests and factory data, and is
supported by data panels offering technical specifications, production numbers and basic performance
data. Unique amongst books on this marque, illustrations comprise only original images of the cars
when new, sourced from factory sales brochures, press photos, period photographs and illustrated
The book is printed in full colour throughout, and contains a CD of downloadable
images of Armstrong Siddeley sales catalogues from 1920 to 1960. The book comprises 272 pages printed on
heavyweight art paper, is hard-bound, and is presented in a strong slipcase. Only 1000 copies have been
printed, ensuring that it will remain a valued addition to any motoring library.

The book was launched by noted Armstrong-Siddeley author Robert Penn Bradley at the 50th Anniversary National
Rally of the Australian Armstrong Siddeley Car Club in May, 2010.|
It is a book not only of high quality, but more importantly his treatment brings into play a new dimension
on the Armstrong Siddeley story. It will bring a wide audience to an often overlooked marque which is
“the sphinx with the heart of a lion”.
