Armstrong Siddeley 17hp Gallery

During the early 1930s, motorcar technology was evolving rapidly, leaving the 15hp model looking a little long in the tooth even though it was constantly updated. To remedy the situation a new model, known as the 17hp, was introduced in 1934; this model had an overhead valve engine, improved chassis and suspension and a range of new body styles.

The new bodies were available with either a Short Wheelbase (SWB), Standard Wheelbase or Long Wheelbase (LWB) chassis to accommodate a variety of different body styles; these included, a six-light Saloon, a four-light Sports saloon, a four-seat two-door Sporting Foursome, a Tourer and Limousine and Landallet versions all from the in-house Burlington company. Rolling chassis were also available for customers to take to their favourite coachbuilder to have a body of their own style produced.
