Rather Armstrong-Siddeley, I think.

Yes, but trying to guess which one. Star Sapphire had cutaway rear wheel fairings, so not relevant here. This leaves 236 (1955-77), 346 Mk1 (Oct 52- Sept 54), 346 Mk2 (Sept 54 - Oct 58) and 346 Limo (Mar 55- 1959). I don't think it's a 236 which was smaller if I remember correctly, so it's one of the 346s, but do not know how to separate them from this view. So 1953 + 346 Mk1 unless anyone knows better.

Maybe easier with this view?

Thanks - this excludes the Limo which was lwb. So 346 Mk1 or 2? I'm going for 1955+ 346 Mk2 due to size of rear lights which on Mk2 had flashing indicators, and because of the mudflaps (Mk2 has "rubber stoneguards"). But I'm still guessing and the debate is open.

I think that you have called this correctly, but the only thing to add is that this appears to be the "six-light" saloon, with additional windows behind the rear doors rather than the "four-light" saloon with the thicker rear pillar.

The 234, and the 236 were completely different cars, and the Star had a different tail treatment.

We had a 1953 346 "Four-light" NYO 817, before the Bentley R-type which I still have.

@john: what does 4-light/6-light mean in relation to marks and dates? Is it simple (eg 4-light = Mk1 = 1953+, 6-light = Mk2 = 1955+)? Or muddier??

According to this - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armstrong_Siddeley_Sapphire_(motor_car) - the Sapphire could be had with either 4 or 6 light styling.
