This wonderful Alvis Speed 20 4.3 litre carries the distinction of being the best driving, most thoroughly enjoyable 1930's tourer we've had in the 27 year history of the company. DMX 829 also has a particularly interesting history and has been subject of a complete rebuild using an authentic original Vanden Plas body. Nick Szkiler, our founder came back from the appraisal and test drive of this car stating, 'It's glorious and I've not driven anything like it'. The fact that it is an ex-Albert Sparrowhawk Alvis rather explains it. Back in the day, you bought a new chassis from a quality manufacturer like Alvis and clothed it with your chosen body from a number of contemporary coachbuilders, Cross and Ellis, Charlesworth and Vanden Plas for example. Almost twenty years ago, this car was rebuilt by a gifted enthusiast who really knew these cars. The chassis was originally built as a Speed 20 Charlesworth saloon in 1936. By 1965 it was in quite rough condition and was offered for sale in the AlvisOwners Club at 90. By the late 1990's the car was a rolling chassis and restoration commenced using a genuine Vanden Plas Tourer body, originally fitted to a Derby Bentley. The body is from one of five tourers built of the type, this one being documented as from RC44. The car was fitted with the more potent engine from a 4.3 litre SB Charlesworth saloon. The builder, Albert Sparrowhawk is well known in Alvis Circles as a spirited racing driver and builder. He owned the Bentley from which this body came, only buying the body back after the new owner removed it to fit a replica Bentley Le Mans tourer. Sparrowhawk had some success in motor racing:; April 1994 VSCC Silverstone:; Richard Pilkington was hopeful of repeating last year's success in the Fox & Nicholl Trophy with the Totnes Motor Museum's 1938 Talbot, but he disappeared from second place after one lap when a drive coupling sheared. That left Albert Sparrowhawk (Alvis) with the early lead from Bob Gilbert's Bentley. Arriving late on the grid,Rodney Felton was forced to start his Alfa Monza from the back but by the end of lap one he was up to 10th, and four laps later had demoted Sparrowhawk to second. The earlier Sparrowhawk Alvis, driven by David Heimann, displaced Gilbert to take third after half-distance and closed up to challenge for second, but a spirited defence by Sparrowhawk managed to retain the place to the finish. Here he is again in May 1996:; Siverstone - Vintage allcomers race. Bob Burrell led the first half of the Fox and Nicholl Trophy Race with his familiar 8-litre Bentley-Royce, closely shadowed by Julian Bronson's Riley 'Blue Streak' Special, but a quick spin by the Bentley allowed the Riley to seize the advantage; Burrell was almost caught by the scrapping pair of Albert Sparrowhawk (Alvis) and Bob Gilbert (Bentley), Burrell and Gilbert being so engrossed in their business that they battled on for two more laps after the fall of the flag! (extracts courtesy of Motorsport magazine); The engine was meticulouslyrebuilt using high compression pistons, and the best bearings available. Once assembled it was set up by Sparrowhawk - a man who really knew how to tune them. Eighteen years and some 5,000 smiles later, the car is a gem, thoroughly sorted and truly outstanding to drive. With its very robust early synchromesh four speed gearbox, the car is a joy to drive enthusiastically. Whilst not impossible to criticise cosmetically, we know we are never likely to surpass DMX 829 as the most exhilarating, taut and lively pre-war tourer imaginable. Paintwork has aged well; the alloy bodywork is still top class and the leather upholstery, hood and weather gear now have a nicely aged patina. The engine bay presents superbly. We thought carefully about price and Nick's comment was 'If I owned this, I'd never want to part with it'. Fortunately for someone it is now on the market - though we doubt it will be for long. It's the sort of car you'd see be thrilled to see (and hear) on the Flying Scotsman Rally. DMX 829comes with VSCC Eligibility document, 'buff' logbook, dating back to 1961, MOT certificates since rebuild completion in 2000 and a comprehensive file of paperwork. Price: 139,995

This beautiful Alvis Firebird DHC was supplied new by Haines and Strange of Cheltenham on the 3rd July 1936. BDD 744 boasts the beautiful Cross and Ellis DHC body and we are told only 25 of the 97 Firebird's manufactured with this body are said to survive. The first owner was Mr W Rust in Cheltenham and whilst we know little about the car during the 1940's, we do know the Alvis was owned by a Club member in Gloucestershire during 1963/1954. We also have an original brown 'buff' logbook that confirms that during the 1960's the Alvis changed hands several times between Surrey, South East London and Kent. Records confirm in 1984 the Firebird owned by Club member in Chatham, Kent who interestingly was the last entry in the old logbook suggesting the car has just the one owner for across three decades. In 1988 the Firebird was purchased by another Alvis owners club member who was based in Windsor. He kept the car for 23 years and enjoyed overseas open touring in the Alvis. Paperwork in the history filerecords various trips over to France and during his ownership extensive mechanical work was carried out. In 1999 an engine rebuild at cost of over 5,000 was carried out. This included re-lining the block, new Pistons and the block was acid treated and neutralised using caustic soda. Main bearing shells were checked and lined with white metal. Con rods were also checked, prepared and ready white metalled and the crank shaft re ground. The timing chain was replaced, water pump rebuilt and flywheel and clutch plate re faced and re conditioned as required. In the region of 5000 miles have been covered since this major engine work. The Alvis was sold in 2011 and the new owner then spent 11,300 with Alvis specialists Red Triangle between 2012 and 2013. This included removing big end and main bearings and carrying out some engine rebuild work due to an engine fault. The starter motor was also re-conditioned as required due to failure and in the region of 3,000 alone was spent on a front suspensionrebuild. Various electrical work was also carried during this re-conditioning work. In late 2017 a programme of cosmetic work began as whilst the car was in strong mechanical order, it had not been treated to any cosmetic work for many years. The body was stripped down to a rolling shell, paintwork was stripped right bac and the car treated to a complete full re paint in the cars original colours of Maroon over Black. The wheels were also stripped and re-painted and the car then built back up to present in stunning condition with exceptional gleaming paintwork. The Alvis was then treated to a brand new hood and interior woodwork was renovated. BDD 744 now is a truly exceptional car with a beautiful finish to it. The interior still retains lots of patina with excellent quality nicely aged leather and the fresh woodwork and new expensive hood really complete the car. On the road the Alvis is impressive, as it was when thoroughly road tested by us on Harrogate ring road prior to coming to us. Theengine performs very well indeed, the gearbox is very easy to use and the Firebird handles and brakes real well. BDD 744 is an impressive pre war four seat tourer and it's now ready for shows, events and touring. Price: 52,995

For many years the Alvis 12/50 has been one of the most revered and sought after Vintage Cars. Introduced in 1923, the Alvis 12/50 was developed through a number of series with production eventually ceasing in 1932. Factory bodies were made by Cross & Ellis and Carbodies and a range of two and four seat models and saloons were available. Between 1929 and 1930 the 12/50 was withdrawn when Alvis believed the future lay with their recently introduced front wheel drive models. However, these did not prove a great success and the final version of the 12/50 was introduced for the 1931 model year with the designation 'TJ'. The 12/50 TJ was joined by a more sporting version on the same chassis - the 12/60 and both models were built until 1932. Presented for sale here is an exceptional example of the 12/60 TJ Four Seat Tourer. Totally restored by a retired senior Ford engineer and completed around five years ago, the car was acquired by the current owner in 2015 but has only been sparingly used due to health problems and is reluctantly now offered for sale. This Alvis is correct in all details with everything fully functional including the notorious Hobson Telegauge fuel gauge! (these gauges very rarely work). Trimmed in green hide with bound Wilton carpets, the car has perfect full weather equipment and has been meticulously maintained. We have driven this car for some 50 miles and we believe it is the best example of its type available. A number of large files of paperwork are available which include a vast number of bills etc from the restoration plus copies of the Vintage Alvis manual and wiring diagrams, RF60 Buff log book and drivers handbook.
