ARMSTRONG SIDDELEY HURRICANE 16/18 HP

Drophead coupè, Typhoon 4-seater fixed-head coupè.

Mechanically the same as the Lancaster, but watch for wood rot and corrosion, especially in sills and screen pillars. Driving vision poor with hood up. The fabric-roof Typhoon (September '46 until late '49) was a hardtop coupè three years before Detroit dreamed up this label.
