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: 124,995

We are delighted to once again offer this very well-known and impressive Alvis TF21 onto the market. JUB 777E is the 8th to last ever built Alvis T series car and as the last 5 were Grabers, it is in fact the 3rd to last UK car. Alvis records confirm this car left the factory in Midnight Blue with Blue leather upholstery and Grey headlining and was delivered on the 11th April 1967 to A.G Wilson Limited, Regent Street, Leeds 2. Paperwork from the Alvis Owners Club confirms the Club have documentation on this vehicle dating back to 1973 when the car was in Great Yarmouth. JUB 777E has two large comprehensive lever arch files of history, the first detailing a top quality major restoration in 1992. From the extensive photographic record, we know this TF21 was largely original whilst in need of restoration. Still in its original colour and still retaining its original trim and boasting a webasto sunroof, the Alvis was taken to Alvis, Bentley and Rolls Royce Restoration specialists Elm Grove CoachworksLtd in Surrey and a major program of work was carried out to an exceptionally high standard. The car was stripped inside and out and taken back to bare metal. Doors, bonnet and boot lid were removed and chassis, engine compartment and complete underbody were shot blasted. The body was then completely restored with new metal and brand new panels included front wings. On completion of the body restoration, the Alvis was fully re-painted in its correct original Midnight Blue. Interestingly, the coach builders working on the Alvis had spent most of their working lives with the original builders of the body, Mulliner Park Ward Ltd. 1400 hours were spent restoring the car to its original and correct state. All chrome work was re-plated, all walnut veneers were polished, and a new West of England Cloth headlining fitted. A new set of Wilton carpets were made, and the original leather carefully treated and restored and new A and B post trim panels made. A new set of chrome wire wheels were fitted, a set oftyres also purchased, the radio overhauled, and new safety belts fitted. Whilst removed from the vehicle, the engine was overhauled, the brakes re-commissioned, carburettors were rebuilt, and a new exhaust system was fitted. During the 1990's the Alvis was extensively toured and attended Alvis events all over the UK. Since rebuild in 1992, the car has covered an impressive 75,000 miles clearly demonstrating what a fabulous, reliable long distance touring car this is. With power assisted steering, the ZF five speed gearbox and a Webasto sunroof for when the sun is out, this really is the an incredibly impressive usable and enjoyable Alvis to drive. In 2000, almost 25,000 miles after restoration, the Alvis was sold to a then current Director of the Alvis Owners Club based in Scotland having had in the region of 10,000 spent with Red Triangle in 1999/2000. JUB 777E stayed with its Club Director owner for the next 15 years covering 50,000 miles. Alvis events all over the UK were regularly attended andthe car was often toured on the Continent and even taken over to the US for an Alvis Club tour. The car has proven a wonderful long distance touring car and throughout the fifteen year ownership it was maintained to a very high standard with receipts for over 14,000 present in the file over this period. Work included rebuilding the cylinder head to unleaded spec, new suspension and braking components including leaf springs, brake discs, pads, master cylinder etc, overhauling the cooling system, tyres, fitting upgraded headlights and much, much more. JUB 777E came to us for the first time in 2015 and we opted to carry out a full bare metal re-paint at our Malton Coachworks bodyshop due to some micro-blistering issues, we also fitted new Wilton carpets and mechanical work included fitting electronic ignition, uprated HT leads, electronic cooling fan, new top and bottom hoses, rebuilt brake calipers, new rear shocker bushes and serviced the car. Since 2015 the Alvis has had occasional use, attendedNorthern events such as Newby Hall and has been part of a small collection where it has been nurtured and used in good weather only. We sold the car again to a long-term customer in Wiltshire in September 2018 who has attended various classic events in South West. This wonderful motor car comes back to us still in glorious condition with stunning, gleaming Midnight Blue paintwork, excellent straight panels and lovely bodywork and further improvements since 2018 include a new battery isolator, a Dynalite alternator (looks like a Dynamo and dummy voltage regulator box unit fitted for period look) and the time clock has been converted to a quartz movement. The upholstery still has an amazing original feel and look to it, the engine bay is well presented and as always, the car is outstanding to drive. The engine runs beautifully with excellent performance and oil pressure, the five speed gearbox is fabulous and the handling is very impressive. This is a very correct car still retaining lots oforiginality whist having major restoration and thousands of pounds of upkeep since rebuild. The mileage tells the real story, this is car that can be driven anywhere with absolute confidence and with its high level of provenance and Club history, this really is a remarkably special car and a true collectors piece being one of the last ever Alvis T Series cars off the production line.

The 12/50 is a significant model in Alvis history for many reasons. It was the car that really marked the arrival of Alvis as a serious and successful car maker and set the standard for the remainder of the company's car production. Alvis took the basic side valve design and converted it to pushrod overhead valves in 1923 and all subsequent production Alvis cars had overhead valves. It was immediately apparent that this was a quite exceptional 1500cc sports car and, with minor changes, it was reborn as the immortal 12/50; the very quintessence of the vintage sports car. The 12/50 was produced over a long period but discontinued in 1929 when the firm pinned its faith on the front-wheel drive models. When these failed to win wide acceptance, the 12/50 was hastily re-introduced and is believed to have saved the firm. The Alvis 12/50 is notably regarded as one of the definitive vintage cars with a perfect balance of power, road holding and braking. The model is well reported of having real durabilityand reliability, contributing factors being the ultra strong chassis and impressive mechanical design. The 12/50 model was in production for ten years and we believe 3616 were built with less than 500 survivors known by the Alvis Club. VE 5158 was first registered on the 13th May 1931 and from an original brown 'buff' logbook we can confirm this well travelled four seat tourer spent the 1950's and early 1960's in Hertfordshire, from 1963 to 1970 in Edinburgh, 1970-1972 in Lincoln, 1972 - 1974 in Newcastle, late 1970's in the North West then Derbyshire and from 1984 the Alvis spent 26 years in Berkshire before selling to the most recent owner in Bromsgrove in 2010. The Alvis comes with an exceptional history file with restoration invoices dating back to the 1970's and MOT certificates dating back to 1983 indicate the Alvis has covered 9000 miles in the past 35 years and has been kept roadworthy and on the road throughout this period. Fascinating letters, correspondence and restoration paperwork gointo great detail and in a letter dated 22nd January 1974 we learn the Alvis was owned by the secretary of the VSCC in Scotland during the 1960's. We also learn the Alvis was used for some hillclimb events in the 1960's before becoming an every day car for one of its Scottish owners in the late 1960's. It was often driven from Edinburgh to Ayr over the Lanarkshire Moors and used for touring holidays. The owner then moved to Lincoln and in 1972 and the Alvis the owner treated the car to some major work to include an engine rebuild to include re-metalling all main and big end bearings, the clutch was re-lined and the dynamo was overhauled. Invoices and related paperwork tell us the Alvis was subject of more restoration work during the late 1980's and its long term owner continued to spend money on the car right throughout his ownership of almost 30 years. Major work during the 1990's included stripping and repairing the gearbox, major work to the exhaust manifold, re-conditioning of the clutch,replacing water pipes, engine and gearbox mountings, carrying out rocker shaft modifications, new exhaust sections, overhauling brakes, replacing springs and spring bushes, replacing the rear cross shaft, stripping and rebuilding the steering box, renewing floor boards, new side-screens and hood, re-trimming the interior, restoring the headlamps, carrying out paintwork and carrying out various re-wiring work. Over the past eight years the most recent owner has also maintained the Alvis very well, and invoices detail work to include new distributor, drive gears, replacing carburettor components, new cylinder head gasket and inlet and exhaust gaskets and regular servicing. VE 5158 has had two owners in 35 years, has covered 9000 miles in this time and has been thoroughly enjoyed and proven a true pleasure to own. This Alvis 12/50 TJ Tourer presents very well with its beautiful four seat tourer body. The metal work is in excellent order and the 1990's bright paint finish has a lovely aged finish butdoes have evidence of micro-blistering. The car has the look of a very genuine, honest and correct, nicely aged car but paintwork improvements can be discussed if necessary. Brightwork is still of a good standard, the interior is beautifully presented with a lovely patina and the full weather gear is in excellent order. The strong robust chassis is in excellent order and on the road the Alvis performs very well and is very happy at 45-50MPH. The gearbox bearings are particularly quiet, the four cylinder engine performs superbly and sounds delightful and the 12/50 handles and brakes well. VE 5158 is a very charming, well sorted older restoration that has a lovely history and is useable, presentable and incredibly desirable in its correct four seat tourer format. Price: 29,995

1935 Alvis Silver Eagle 2 door coupé. Chassis number: 1702 Registration number: NFO629 Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this 1935 Alvis Silver Eagle 2 Door Coupé for sale. An unusual Alvis Silver Eagle 2 door coupe with coachwork by cross & Ellis. Two were built to this design and we suspect this model to be the only survivor. Much money has been spent on the Alvis Silver Eagle 2 Door Coupé to bring it to the condition we find it in today. The original maroon leather interior has been preserved and is in fine patinated order. The Alvis Silver Eagle 2 Door Coupé is finished in a very period two tone grey colour scheme that suits the car very well with the paint being of recent origin and in fine order. The roof covering is of rexine fabric and again, is in excellent shape. This is a car which was in one family ownership from registration in 1935 until 1960 when it passed to an owner in Lincolnshire who took it off the road in 1962. In 2012 it emerged and since then has had the works done. Mr. William Beattie of Lochgilphead acquired the car (the V5 shows his ownership as 01/07/2014 but we think he acquired it earlier than that). He undertook a panel, paint, plating, roof, sunroof and interior restoration and also rebuilt the radiator, water pump, cylinder head, exhaust system and road wheels. The current owner had the Alvis Silver Eagle 2 Door Coupé rewired and the dynamo and control box rebuilt and then removed the sump (in view of the time it had been off the road) and fitted a new set of pistons. The interior woodwork has been restored and the brakes stripped and reassembled and carried out a full lubrication service. Thus it is now complete and running nicely although it needs some miles to shake it down and run it in. The 2.4 Litre six-cylinder engine starts readily and pulls strongly providing surprising performance from its 70 or so BHP. It is equipped with triple carbs and makes a very sporting alternative to a Derby Bentley or a more staid Rolls Royce. The gearbox, an Alvis strong point, is a pleasure to use benefiting from superb synchro-mesh making it a pleasure to drive. A traditional Alvis Eagle adorns the bonnet, wings outstretched. The car has four new tyres fitted and sits on rebuilt wire wheels.

Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1958 Alvis TD21 Coachwork by Graber LHD For Sale. Registration no: TBC Chassis no: 25971 Graber commission no: 722 Mileage: 83,000 Price: 90,000.00 The first production Alvis to be styled by Swiss carrossier Graber appeared at the Paris Motor Show in October 1955. Based on the existing TC21 'Grey Lady' chassis, the newcomer brought a much-needed injection of Continental style and modernity to the Coventry manufacturer's range. Lighter, stiffer and with a much smaller frontal area than the traditionally styled Grey Lady, the Graber Alvis enjoyed much improved handling and a higher maximum speed in excess of 100mph. The first Graber-styled model - the TC108G - was built by coachbuilders Willowbrook, before production switched to Rolls-Royce's in-house coachbuilder Park Ward on the introduction of the restyled TD21 for 1959. The TD21 retained Alvis's torquey, 3.0-litre, overhead-valve six, which in up-rated form now came with 120bhp courtesy of a redesigned cylinder head. Inside, there were improvements to the accommodation, with increased headroom and legroom, especially in the rear. Lockheed servo-assisted disc brakes were an option, becoming standardised for 1960. The Motor magazine summed up the TD21 thus: 'As a perfectly serviceable everyday car with extra "chic", extra performance, and high standards of comfort and safety, its appeal to a select but important clientele should be strong.' Although Park Ward was entrusted with the production models, this left-hand drive example has coachwork by Hermann Graber, who continued to offer his own versions on the TD21 chassis. The TD21 is offered in excellent condition having received an extensive restoration from marque experts Earely Engeneering. The Graber bodylines are truly mesmerising and complimented by the Ice green paintwork, which also flows through the interior. The interior is also finished to a high standard with fluted leather to the seats, and a quilted transmission tunnel. A beautiful wooden Nardi steering wheel has been fitted, the original also comes with the car. To drive she is beautiful, the 3.0 litre engine has been well maintained and is strong with plenty of torque. The power all runs through the 5 speed Getrag gearbox which is incredibly smooth, before you know it you are in top gear and cruising along comfortably. The current Dutch owner has used her for several tours. A subtle EZ power steering system has been fitted for ease and wire wheels for aesthetics. In our showroom and ready for viewing.

This Speed Twenty SB started life as a two door FHC by Vanden Plas and was supplied new to Captain C. B. Wilson of Neatishead Norfolk on 17th February 1934. In 1947, the next owner, Squadron Leader Bainbridge-Hawker shipped the car to Singapore where he was stationed. One day while driving over Kallang aerodrome he collided with a marker drum causing the car to burst into flames. The car, over the next 8 years, was repaired and re-bodied with a four seater body to accommodate the Ingham's and their four son's daily transport needs until 1967. The car competed in many events through the 1970's (Singapore & Malaysian Grand Prix) with Henry Stoner who fitted the current body in 1973. The car comes complete with all the trophies.
