75bhp; wb-11'2'') – new version
Here is the latest member in a family of motor cars in the finest tradition - "The Whitley" by Armstrong Siddeley. It is a four-door saloon, giving ample room without the appearance of an unduly large car. The semi razor-edged style is both smart and practical. The front seat is the single bench type with folding arm rest. The engine is 6-cylinder, 18-h.p. (2.3 litres), and develops 75 b.h.p. at 4,200 r.p.m. Either Preselector gearbox with finger-tip control on the steering column, or synchromesh gearbox with central gear lever is available. The overall dimensions are approximately 15' 7'' long by 5' 8'' wide. Judged by any standard, "The Whitley" is a luxurios motor car and a very worthy successor to Armstrong Siddeley prestige. The price is £975 (plus Purchase Tax £271 11s. 8d.)

Siddeley cars are powered by a 2.3-litre 18 HP engines which
develops 75 bhp at 4200 rpm, with a choice of either preselector or
synchromesh gearboxes. All three models were introduced in
September 1949 to replace the previous 16 HP 1.9-litre-engined
versions. The Typhoon was discontinued in May 1950. Whitley Saloon
dimensionally is similar to the Lancaster, but with semi
razor-edged body styling and greater rear seat headroom, it uses
the same mechanical components as the Lancaster, Hurricane and
Typhoon. Wheelbase of all models is 9 ft 7 in.
