The Joy of Alvis Motoring

We have received some inspiring photos from Chris Chilcott ….

“My 12/50 TG 4/5 seat De-lux tourer by Cross & Ellis, Car 9910, chassis 4575, Dispatched Sept 1926, pictured before restoration (it was my everyday car!) on the Frazer Nash Section of the VSCC trial in May 1974 driven by Dick Smith (his Anzani Nash having not been repaired in time). I have owned this car since I was 19!”

Many more vintage era photos have been identified by Chris on the Albums page.
