Looking to buy both intake manifolds for an ARMSTRONG SIDDELEY SAPPHIRE 346 - The car in need is a 1954 model. Any leads are much appreciated, (I know they are available in the UK, but wanted to try my luck on this side of the pond). I can be reached by phone at 860-782-1554 or you are welcome to private message me. Best, Orrie
I have decided to offer my latest find here for sale, it just doesn;t match my collection as cool as it is. More info in the link below but basically it came off an old Rolls-Royce and appears to be from the 1930's to my eye, weighs about 1/2 lb.! Click to see detailed pics: http://forums.aaca.org/f169/found-very-cool-royal-engineers-grille-338310.html Asking $125 which includes shipping and insurance to you anywhere in the US. Please PM with your interest.
I found this at a curiosity shop yesterday and had to pick it up. I've seen lots of grille badges over the years but never anything quite like this. As most are cast metal and enameled or painted, this one is made of multiple pieces, a heavy chrome bezel, chrome backing plate, copper inside plate that has hand-painted stripes in red and blue, Queen Elizabeth II's crest with a ribbon at the bottom that says ""Royal Engineers", and the whole thing is topped off with a domed piece of thick glass. It's marked Beaulah on the base support and the thing weighs over 1/2 lb.!!! It is presumably made in England. The owner said it came from an old Rolls-Royce but didn't have much other info. What other similar pieces have you guys found, specifically with the glass outer cover or maybe even by this maker Beaulah? I considered putting it on my car but it doesn't seem like the right fit on a German car, so I'll either save it for when I eventually get another Brit ride, I do miss those Jaguars!
