ARROL-ASTER 17-50/23-70

Tourer, 5-seater coupé, saloon.

Large, handsome Scottish cars with shallow vee screens and matching radiators, four-speed 'boxes, right-hand change, one-shot lubrication, and cantilevers at the rear. Super-chargers and free wheels on the options list, but single-sleeve-valve engines tend to come apart about 3400rpm, which explains the paucity of survivors. Coupés most attractive.
