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.

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: 44,995

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
