A 1936 Armstrong Siddele two-door sports coupe to go under the hammer

A rare 1936 Armstrong Siddeley car is going under the hammer at Seaton.

The fabulous vintage vehicle will be one of the lots at Lyme Bay Auctions’ first sale of the new year.

Saleroom manager Phil Atkins said: “We are very excited to have been asked to auction this fantastic and very rare car.

“Its previous owner has carried out considerable restoration work but there is plenty still to do for a vintage car enthusiast.”

The Armstrong Siddeley ‘Twelve Plus’ two-door sports coupe was built in 1936 and the engine was professionally rebuilt in Coventry in 1998. It features a pre-selector gearbox, once famous for enabling the tag-line ‘Cars for the daughters of gentlemen’!

The vehicle, which is expected to fetch between £5,000 and £7,000, will be part of Lyme Bay Auctions’ general sale on Monday, February 1, starting at 10am.

Mr Atkins added: “The Siddeley reflects the huge variety of items that we are receiving for auction. Our monthly sales go from strength to strength.”
