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: 39,995

1939 Alvis 12/70 'Anderson' Tourer by Whittingham and Mitchel Registration Number: OJT 727 Chassis Number: 19886 Engine Number: 16158 Transmission: Manual Steering: Right Hand Drive MOT Test Expiry: Exempt Price: £45000 Road Tax Exempt Alvis factory records show that the rolling chassis of OJT 727 was supplied to Hugh Anderson Ltd of London on the 26th of November 1938, and then re-delivered after a final test on the 3rd of January the following year. The body maker was Whittingham and Mitchel, also of London. As an errand boy for a high class Sherborne grocery store, your correspondent delivered provisions to a notable street occupied by solicitors, bank managers and business owners. By co-incidence, the very same Alvis 12/70 was often parked in a garage belonging to a local solicitor and at that time, in the 1950s, the car appeared to be very smart (to a thirteen year old errand boy anyway!) in its fawn colour and with its Dorset JT - prefix registration number. Fast forward a few years and the Alvis was frequently spotted driving around the same town at high speeds with what appeared to be Sherborne school boys at the helm. The motor car then disappeared from sight and mind until several decades later when it returned to the Sherborne Historic Vehicle Rally, entered by its very proud owner Peter Smith. Peter was one half of Smith and Cave of Blandford, motor body repair specialists with an excellent reputation for quality repairs and paintwork. He purchased the 12/70 in the late 1960s, saving it (extraordinarily) from the scrap yard and set about a nut and bold restoration that was carried out over a long period to concours standard. The result is a credit to Peter and his colleagues. There is little point in detailing the full restoration work carried out as we understand that everything was rebuilt or renewed to the highest possible standard. OJT 727 has won numerous concours awards and did duty as Peters daughters wedding car. The Alvis has remained in the same family for almost fifty years and maintained to a high standard. Red Triangle Auto Services has carried out maintenance for the last two years (invoices for this phase included in the file total in excess of £3000) and the motor car has been regularly MOT tested. Full weather equipment, including a tonneau cover and side screens, are supplied; the specially designed aero screens act as side wind deflectors and an Alvis eagle mascot and town radiator cap are also included in the sale. Designated as SC13.22, the 12/70 is supplied with an original instruction book and lubrication chart, two copy spare parts catalogues, images, MOT test certificates, invoices, the V5C registration certificate and its replacement, together with a Red Triangle Auto Services valuation, dated December 2017, for £50,000. The history documentation is contained within a leather Classic Folio. A fabulous opportunity to purchase a very rare Alvis. PRICE: £45000 - Please visit our website for full information...
