1931 Alvis 12/50 TJ 'Beetleback' First appearing in 1923, the Alvis 12/50 was to prove extremely successful and today is one of the most highly regarded cars of the Vintage period. The combination of sound engineering, reliability and excellent handling have ensured their enduring appeal. This particular car, a TJ series, featuring the twin carburettor engine, was despatched from the Works on 29th May with four seater tourer coachwork. It has a well documented history, which shows all previous owners and also that the car was restored and rebodied by Wilkinsons some years ago with authentic Beetleback coachwork. It was to spend a number of years in the USA before returning to Britain in 1996. A highly useable Vintage motor car, it has been fitted with overdrive, alternator and upgraded lamps with flashing indicators making for safer motoring in todays traffic. A major mechanical overhaul included the engine being rebuilt by a respected specialist. The car is of most pleasing appearance in its livery of maroon and black, with maroon leather upholstery. There is a very good hood and tonneau cover. For initial enquiries and to arrange an appointment to view, please call us on 01420-474919 or 07710-364945. Viewing by prior appointment only.

1947 Alvis Duncan Coupe During the Second World War, the Alvis factory had been a major defence contractor, however, the entire works was to suffer serious damage during a bombing raid on the night of 14th November 1940, so it was not until November 1946 that they were able to recommence car production. Their first offering was the TA14, available as a saloon built for Alvis by Mulliners of Birmingham and also in Drophead Coupe versions, built by Carbodies and Tickford. A number of chassis also went to other coachbuilders for special bodywork. It is always a pleasure to offer a motor car that is truly special and extremely rare and here is a unique opportunity indeed. One of just 36 built, the Duncan bodied Alvis Coupe made its debut in the Summer of 1947. The brains behind this special car was Ian Duncan, an aeronautical engineer who had acquired a factory in Norfolk to produce his own very small car, the Duncan Drone, which was powered by a BSA 500cc motorcycle engine. Duncan also began to produce a few special bodies for The Healey Motor Company. The Reliance Garage of Norwich was an Alvis agent, and their sales manager, Stan Boshier, was so impressed by the prototype Healey Duncan, that he asked for a similar body to be fitted to an Alvis TA14 chassis. This body was a striking pillarless design with a large glass area and an elegant, streamlined tail with useful luggage capacity. The seasoned ash framework was made by a Norfolk firm of boat builders and comprised 62 sections of timber, screwed and glued together using Aerolite 300F, the resin used to bond the structure of the Mosquito aircraft. The completed frames were then despatched to Motor Panels of Coventry where they were clad in high-tensile aluminium alloy panels. With extensive soundproofing and high quality trim and furnishings, the brochure stated The combination of the Duncan body and the Alvis chassis provides standards of performance and silence only normally obtained in much larger cars. As the Duncan body was lighter than the production saloon, the 1.9 litre engine was able to provide lively performance, with a comfortable cruising gait of around 65 mph. However, such exclusivity came at a price - £2205, this being almost twice the cost of a standard TA14 saloon. This car, CVG119, was registered on 19th June 1947. The history file confirms that Alvis supplied the completed chassis to The Reliance Garage on 12th May that year. According to David Rogerson, the former Works Manager at Duncan Industries, this was in fact the launch car and was finished in mid 1947. There were originally two cars finished in Summer Cream and the famed racing driver, Kay Petre, who was also motoring correspondent of The Graphic, was to produce an article which stated in a rather tongue in cheek way, how Alvis, Daimler and Healey were combining to adopt a joint body style. David Rogerson stated that The phone never stopped ringing Given Kay Petres reputation as one of Britains top lady racing drivers before the war, she was given the Duncan Coupe to promote and on 6th September 1947, she was photographed with the car having entered it in the Concours dElegance at the RAC Jubilee Rally in Regents Park. Now one of six examples said to remain, this car has undergone meticulous restoration which has included an engine rebuild within the last 4/5 years, replacement of various timber sections and since the restoration the car has been used regularly, attending many shows and events. Two large and comprehensive files of information, invoices, etc are included and this fine and distinctive Alvis is ready for a new chapter in her distinguished life.

2 Previous Owners, FINISHED IN GREY COMPLIMENTED WITH CONTRASTING INTERIOR. This truly is a fabulous car, and it underwent a total rebuild in 2010. She now has a nice mellowed look , The car was stripped down to the chassis, which was grit blasted and painted and fitted with a much more elegant body crafted in aluminium by Terry Hall, of Cirencester. Rather fittingly, the bodywork was then given some smart but subtle two-tone grey paintwork. That same year 2011, the wheels were blasted, painted and fitted with Blockley tyres.New carpets, leather upholstery and a very smart engine-turned dashboard added to general air of elegance and a new windscreen by Wessex Windscreens added a finishing touch.The twin SU carburettors were rebuilt by Gower and Lee and the engine was checked over, pressure-tested and found to need only a new flywheel and the clutch re-lining. The car was comprehensively re-wired and an electric fan added to ensure that the engine stays cool at all times.The prior keeper has done acommendable job of resurrecting the car over five years and the receipts for work done and parts used are on file. The fabulous car is now a very attractive, not to mention practical, post-vintage thoroughbred car ready to go .

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
