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 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

1932 Alvis Speed 20 SA Four Seat Tourer by Cross & Ellis One of the most sought after and highly regarded British motor cars from the immediate post vintage period is the Alvis Speed 20. Making its debut late in 1931, the Speed 20 was powered by a much-modified version of the engine from the previous Silver Eagle models. In this guise the engine developed 87 bhp breathing through 3 SU HV4 carburettors. As had become established Alvis practice, the engine sat on flexible rubber mountings to ensure smoothness, whilst the chassis was a double drop type and a centralised lubrication system was included in the comprehensive specification. A variety of coachwork styles were offered including a 4-door sports saloon by Charlesworth and a sleek 4 door tourer crafted by Cross & Ellis. The motor car we offer for sale here is of 1932 manufacture with Cross & Ellis Tourer coachwork. Having been restored to an extremely high standard several years ago, the car achieved Concours awards twice in the USA during the 1990s as well additional awards in more recent times awarded in the UK. Fastidiously maintained and proven by some 8,000 reliable touring miles in the current ownership both at home and on the Continent this motor car as the advantage of being fitted with the SB fully synchromesh gearbox which makes for effortless gear changing and enhances the driving experience. A particularly welcome and desirable feature of this motor car is the spacious luggage boot this having been added by Cross & Ellis during the 1930s to enable long distance comfortable touring with dry enclosed luggage rather than, what was the norm, of suitcases being carried outside on a rack exposed to the elements. The handsome lines of this car are highlighted by the most attractive duo tone grey paintwork with superb red leather interior trim. A substantial history of the car carefully researched by the current owner is presented and includes photographs of the car in the 1930s, together with a vast quantity of invoices attesting to a no expense spared maintenance history. The car was reunited with its original registration number has its build sheet. Also included are rare and original instruction books along with useful notes for the new custodian. The weather equipment is all in excellent order and fits snugly. The car also comes with two additional reclining seats finished in red leather as an alternative fitment should they be required for comfort during longer journeys. The car also benefits from all the modern essentials of life such as flashing indicators, satnav power point, all fitted with a modern fuse box and discretely hidden. In summary, this is an extremely good example of this desirable Alvis. For more information and to arrange an appointment to view this car please call us on 01420-474919 or 07710-364945. Additional photographs will be added when this Alvis arrives with us.
