A History of the Armstrong Siddeley Car

[The Armstrong Siddeley, made by the famous Coventry company which has built outstanding aeroplane engines since the first World War and still, of course, in production, is a somewhat neglected make, so far as the older models are concerned. No club exists to cater for these cars. Very few are to be found amongst members of the Vintage Sports-Car Club. Sometimes the early versions are dismissed...

Fragments on forgotten makes

No. 30 –– The Crouch The Crouch was one of the multitudinous family of light cars which came into being in essentially simple form before the First World War. It survived into peacetime, developed into a sporting 4-cylinder, but went the way of many, failing under the onslaught of mass-produced cars like Morris and Clyno by 1927. Through the co-operation of Andrew Whyte of Jaguar Cars Ltd., I was...

The 2-1/2-litre V8 Daimler Dart

Something truly new... At long last something refreshingly new is to emerge from a British factory, for last month, at the New York Show, the Daimler Dart made its debut. This new sports car is the work of Edward Turner, managing director of the Automotive Division of the B.S.A. Group. It is revolutionary in respect of its V8 engine and plastic body. The Daimler Company has made sports cars...

Fragments on forgotten makes No. 37: the Brotherhood

In 1867 the engineering business of Peter Brotherhood was established in London. They became well known as manufacturers of compressors, steam-turbines and as precision machinists. The Company was founded by Peter Brotherhood, who was born in Maidenhead in 1838, the son of Rowland Brotherhood who had been associated with Brunel in the construction of the G.W.R. The first works were under the...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The Dawn of "The Daimler" Last month's issue of Motor Sport had quite a Daimler flavour to it, what with my description of an outing up Shelsley Walsh in the British Leyland Heritage/Coventry Museum's fine big Edwardian of that make, and my article about the motor-cars of Mr. Bolton, a gentleman who had a preference for Daimlers and drove them at Shelsley...

Club News

We Hear Group-Captain Tom Evans would appear to possess a most interesting motor-car, in the form of his Centric-supercharged, ex-Donaldson O.E. "30/98" Vauxhall, and, moreover, 'tis said that he has actually made the hydraulic front brakes work superbly! Those pessimists who consider that all the "discoverable" veterans have been found should note that a year ago a 1914 Bebe Peugeot in brand new...

Fragments on forgotten makes

No. 48: The Sheffield-Simplex The Sheffield-Simplex evolved from the Brotherhood car, which I dealt with five years ago in No. 37 of this series. Earl Fitzwilliam, the Yorkshire landowner whose country seat, Wentworth Wood House, was reputed to possess 365 windows, one for each day of the year, was on the Board of Directors of The Brotherhood-Crocker Company and when this concern abandoned its...

Sideslips by "Baladeur"

Some time ago, I remarked, in an unguarded moment, that one day I should have to write an article on "Racing Cars Which Never Appeared." It was a rash move, since, as I might almost have expected, a reader has taken me up, with the suggestion that "one day" should be now; in fact, that I had better get on with it. It is a large subject, and I can hardly hope to do justice to it in a short article...
