"In this British aristocrat, one can almost envision Sir Winston Churchill sitting in the backseat, puffing on a cigar and tipping his hat. Whether it's a procession or a pleasant drive in the countryside, this British aristocrat is a feast for the eyes."

"In this British aristocrat, one can almost envision Sir Winston Churchill sitting in the backseat, puffing on a cigar and tipping his hat. Whether it's a procession or a pleasant drive in the countryside, this British aristocrat is a feast for the eyes."


The car was sold new in Sweden in 1946 to a major in the Air Force, a Frank Cerwell from Stockholm, and eventually ended up with the major on duty in Linköping and Norrköping for a few years. Cerwell joined the air service as early as 1930, served as an air attaché in London and Oslo during WW2, became a colonel in 1951, and continued a decorated career in the Air Force until 1963.

In July 1951, he traded the car in at Philipsson in Stockholm, and there's a surprising note indicating that Svenska Aeroplan AB owned it for a year. Thus, it might be that SAAB had it for study purposes, but it's most likely that the aviation division used it as an executive car. The car's chain of ownership continued throughout the fifties and sixties in Göteborg, Kinnared, Kulltorp, Värnamo, Lagan, Mjölby, and Linköping, where the traces end with Brandström Bil AB's bankruptcy in the autumn of 1963. In 1989, the car was registered in the new system by the previous owner who probably bought it from an earlier owner in Tvååker, Halland. The current owner has since addressed and fixed the wheel bearings and front brakes, as well as renovated the carburetor.

Beurteilung Fahrzeugzustand

  • Zustand technisch:

    Starts easily and runs smoothly. 12-volt electrical system with positive ground.

  • Zustand Interieur:

    Leather interior in beautiful, intact, and finely patinated original condition, complemented by an equally handsome wooden dashboard. The car was endowed with a new set of mats during the repainting in the eighties.

  • Zustand Exterieur:

    The wood in the car's frame appears healthy and looks good. At some point in the eighties, the car was repainted in its original color and also received a new convertible top. Deep, black, and fine paint with a few minor blisters, scratches, and dents. The right rear fender has a small damage from something that likely fell onto the car during storage. (What appears as damage on the trunk in a couple of pictures is actually reflections from the background).

  • Zustand gesamt:

    Genuine and robust thirties luxury reincarnated after the war in a stylish forties attire, presented here in an exceptionally fine and user-friendly condition. A delightful classic and collector's item.

Fakten zum Modell

Armstrong Siddeley was an English, aristocratic car brand for over 40 years, from 1919 to 1960. Besides car manufacturing, the company was known for producing high-quality aircraft engines. The model name Hurricane was taken from the famous fighter aircraft, manufactured by de Havilland, a company that was also part of the same group as Armstrong Siddeley.
In 1959, Armstrong Siddeley was purchased by Rolls-Royce, who discontinued the car manufacturing just a year later. However, aircraft engines are still produced in the same factory under the name Rolls-Royce.
The Hurricane was the first English car model to be introduced after the war, specifically on May 11, 1945. It's no surprise that its design resembles the pre-war models. Production began in November 1945 and ran until May 1953. A total of 2,606 units were produced, with a production rate of about one car per day.
Only a few (enthusiasts) had the privilege to purchase an Armstrong Siddeley Hurricane back in the day. The car was expensive. The list price in Sweden was 20,400 kr, which was roughly 2.5 times the price of the popular American cars of the time.
The car features an X-frame with a body skeleton made of ash wood. The hoods and doors are made of aluminum, so rust isn't a significant concern. The engine is a six-cylinder, 2-liter overhead-valve engine with 70 hp. It has hydraulic valve lifters and is specially balanced, making it run very quietly and smoothly.
