1946-1952 ARMSTRONG SIDDELEY Lancaster specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
It might have been the company’s first post-war car, but underneath the Lancaster’s skin beat the heart of a pre-war car. Despite that, it can justifiably be described as Britain’s first all-new post-war car, appearing on the market the same week hostilities ceased in Europe. The 2.0-litre saloon was hardly groundbreaking but, with torsion bar suspension, hydromechanical brakes and a four-speed all-synchromesh gearbox, it was comfortable and easy to drive. Dignified and refined it might have been, but it suffered badly from rust.
