1950-1954 ARMSTRONG SIDDELEY Whitley specifications


Once the great export drive was under way, Armstrong Siddeley was instantly building a car that it considered more than suitable for the Colonies. More imposing styling was the key to its appeal, with an updated nose and roofline to distance it from the Lancaster. It wasn’t the new recipe that the British car industry needed, although it did prove a big seller. Underneath it was a familiar story, powered by the familiar 2.3-litre straight six that saw service in the last of the previous generation of models. It was big and comfortable, too.
