Armstrong Siddeley Lancaster Gallery

The Lancaster saloon, along with the Hurricane drophead coupe, was announced to the public in May 1945. The car had a body of a striking appearance mounted on new chassis, complete with independent front suspension The engine and transmission of the pre-war 16hp saloon were utilised with the Zenith carburettor being replacing a Stromberg. 

Delivery of the new Lancaster commenced in 1946 and continued through to 1952. From 1949 onwards the Lancaster became available with the larger 18hp engine.
