Pictures from the Heritage Archives.


The cars have now reached the end of the production line. In this clean and extremely well lit section of the workshop the final touches are given. First cleaning the vehicles inside and out, followed by a final polish of the paint work using the tried and tested Simoniz wax polish. The car towards the back of the picture is attended to by a team of sharp eyed ladies who have spotted a fault with the chrome radiator grill which is in the process of being changed.



The final inspection is being made by the gentleman dressed in a suit, wearing collar and tie to the right of the picture. Behind him the car awaiting the new radiator grill. We have seen from this series of pictures that the production process was certainly 'hands on'. The care taken and the use of carefully selected materials also affirm the claim that the Armstrong Siddeley was certainly a car 'Of Aircraft Quality'.
