Our vendor acquired the car/project at around 75/80% complete back in 2007. Since then around 10-15% additional progress has been achieved. Completion hampered by continued ill-health. At the start of 2020, the decision has been taken that the final push needs to be completed by another pair of hands. In simple terms, there isn’t a huge amount outstanding. All of which could be completed by competent enthusiast or professional in a matter of weeks.
The coachwork is an accurate copy of a 1924 Sports tourer, ash frame skinned in aluminium, this is painted black over maroon. New mudguards and valances painted black, running boards. Fully trimmed in maroon leather, new hood frame made by Wessex Workshops. A full tonneau cover completes the weather protection.
What we know has been completed, invoices/photos confirm.
In short, a huge amount of expenditure has been invested over the years, and a final strong push would see her on the road in just a few weeks. I’m sure the Alvis community would be delighted to see her at Alvis centenary celebrations in Coventry this summer.
We recommend forming an orderly queue at our showroom door, as this is an unrivalled opportunity to acquire this virtually complete, very attractive, highly useable Vintage tourer at well below the market value of a 12/50 Sports Tourer.
