OXFORD DIECAST ASH005 O SCALE Bluebird Blue Malcolm Campbell Armstrong Siddeley Hurricane Closed

The Hurricane was a two-door, four seat drophead coupe made by Armstrong Siddeley Motors between 1946 and 1953. This model is a replica of the car owned by Sir Malcolm Campbell, the land speed record holder, who had its paint scheme in 'Bluebird Blue' especially commissioned. Following his death in 1948, the car passed through a further two owners before being abandoned in the 1960s. Forty years later it was sold to a Swiss enthusiast who is now restoring it.

Modelled with the hood in the raised position and with its non-opening 'suicide doors', the body and wheels are painted in the blue, with silver wheel inserts. The 'canvas' hood is beige, a colour also used for the seats, floor covering and door panels. The interior decoration also includes a white steering wheel, a brown dashboard, sun visors and floor cappings. Other details include a wealth of chrome work and the Armstrong Siddeley badge is particularly impressive.
