If ever there was a car that exuded British style it was the Armstrong Siddeley. From the vast leviathans of the 1920s to the Art Deco inspired cars of the thirties to the restrained post-modernism of the 1950s. Somehow, for all these design influences Armstrong Siddeleys came out looking good, and very British indeed. A complete, graphically illustrated history from a unique socio-economic perspective this book brings the Siddeley marque to life. Extensively illustrated throughout with over 460 photographs this book is a fascinating piece of literature for automotive and historical enthusiasts alike.

Praise For Armstrong-Siddeley Motors: The Cars, the company and the people in definitive detail

"If the main title doesn't say it all, the subtitle certainly does. This book contains every detail fans of this British marque might be looking for, right down to the serial numbers and abbreviated histories of many of the cars. At nearly 500 pages, this book is truly a labor of love. In fact, author and Armstrong Siddeley owner Bill Smith put 30 years of research into writing this definitive work. Included are stories about the people who built the car, the details of the motor cars they produced for 41 years before the company was absorbed by Rolls-Royce and the lasting impression the car has made, illustrated through car club information and even the author's own passion for the marque. At $139.95 US, this is not a cheap book, but rather a worthy investment." - Old Cars Weekly
