A special Siddeley
FOLLOWING OUR RECENT REFERENCE TO SIDDELEY SPECIALS, A READER SENT US
a photo of an unusual car seen at VSCC Silverstone. The work of Derrick Moores, this supercharged sports Siddeley is probably lighter than a blower-41A Bentley and about as powerful. The original saloon body was too dilapidated to save, so the chassis was shortened to take a two-seater body. A Marshall blower with twin carburettors sits between the front dumb-irons, Bentley-fashion; new pistons and conrods have been installed. This fast and handsome car is a credit to its owner, who has been an Armstrong-Siddeley expert for many years.
