Pictures from the Heritage Archives

Returning to our series of pictures of Armstrong Siddeleys being built: the now prepared and ready body shells on the right of the first picture are about to meet up with their chassis and join the rank to the left of the picture.

There may be a clue as to why the lines are so lengthy when we view the second picture showing just how the two parts are assembled. Any present owner carrying out a 'body off' restoration may wish to study carefully how the factory supported the body shell.

While all this work was being carried out, other departments had been busy making the interior fittings and soon these items would be added to the vehicles. As anyone who has refurbished far less restored a car will know hand building a car is not a speedy process.
