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 Between 1929 and 1930 the 12/50 was withdrawn when Alvis believed the future lay with their recently introduced front wheel drive models.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.

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

![CDATA[The Alvis TD21 was a British sporting car made by Alvis cars between 1958 and 1963. It was an updated version of the TC 108G with body construction by Park Ward who at the time were better able to supply them to the quantity, quality and price required. The cars were built slightly taller and a drophead coupé was added to the range. The 2993 cc engine was uprated, mainly by an improved cylinder head and increasing the compression ration from 8.0:1 to 8.5:1. A new four speed gearbox from the Austin-Healey appeared. Overdrive was available on the manual transmission from late 1960 to 1962. Suspension was similar to the TC 21, independent at the front using coil springs with leaf springs at the rear and a front anti roll bar added. Wire spoked wheels became an option. From 1959 the all drum brake set up was changed to discs at the front retaining drums at the rear. A car with manual transmission was tested by the British magazine The Motor in 1960 and had a top speed of 103 mph and couldaccelerate from 0-60 mph in 13.5 seconds. This Alvis Drophead Coupé has been owned by the vendor since July 2009; he has enjoyed the car immensely during that time however, as he has used the car very little of late, the time has come for the Alvis to find a new owner. Finished in light metallic blue with cream leather interior, this drophead is fitted with an automatic transmission. The bodywork is quite straight and sound although the paintwork could do with being refreshed. We are advised the gearbox has been rebuilt and the brakes were overhauled by Red Triangle less than 500 miles ago. The interior is in good order as is the chromework. These quintessentially British motor cars have style and presence in abundance; this example comes with a V5C registration document and a good history folder.]]

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
