A collection of our cars we have available for hire
Introduced In 1945 a day after the end of the second world war Armstrong Siddeley produced a completely new model of cars which was of high quality. Sports and saloon cars which offered luxurious interior trim, very generous rear seating and performance only previously found in true sports car of the day.
Not many cars were manufactured mainly due to their high price, not much less than a comparable Rolls Royce or Bentley and aimed at the same market. Now a rare car, so why not have something different and exclusive on your special day, with cars in matching colours for you and your bridesmaids.
The 346 was the first of the Sapphires introduced late in 1952 for sale in 1953 and continuing until 1958. The six-cylinder 3,435 cc engine had hemi-spherical combustion chambers and could be fitted with the option Stromberg carburettors(£25 extra) which increased the output from 125 to 150 bhp (93 to 112 kW) giving a top speed in excess of 100 mph (161 km/h). The front suspension was independent coil springs with a rigid axle and leaf springs at the rear.
The body was available as a four- or six-light (two or three windows on each side) at the same cost and with either a bench or individual front seats. The seats were finished in leather, with the dashboard and door-cappings in walnut veneer. A heater was standard.
The Armstrong Siddeley Whitley accompanied here in matching colours with the Typhoon. The Whitley was a large post-war sports saloon automobile and was a version of the 16/18 hp series made between 1946 and 1954, This is a 4 seater ideal for the parents of the bride or the bridesmaids

Austin Sheerline 1950
The Sheerline was designed by Austin during the Second World War, but volume production did not begin until 1947 because of the commitment to war production. It was a luxurious car in the style of the contemporary Rolls-Royce or Bentley but at a much lower price, around two-thirds that of the equivalent Rolls-Royce but still the price of five or six small Austins. There were about 8,000 built but it is now becoming quite rare.
