Alvis in Museums

The trustees met in October at Brooklands and Gaydon (see the Trustees meet page), visited the Herbert in Coventry and a couple of former officials of the AOC who have donated some archive material. This prompted us to revisit the list of museums with Alvis material which was compiled some time ago and to update the list of Alvis vehicles that are on public show.

There are exciting changes at both the Coventry Transport Museum and Gaydon which both have Alvis exhibits and expansion plans currently underway.

News of the loss of two former AOC General Secretaries this year is recorded on the Alvis People page.

Another article is published on the PPS by Dave Culshaw page with musical connections.

The AOC is exhibiting again at the NEC Classic Car Show (Friday 14th November for three days) with a Speed Models theme put together by Steve Horne using some of the material from the archives.

  1. Does the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu still have the black Speed 25 Charlesworth dhc, which was on display for many years?

  2. Good afternoon, I have been looking for the perfect pale metallic green and here I find Piasio Green or Vert Clair under the Alvis Colours link. Could anybody advise me of the colour mix or production car that used it or the owner of the green car who might have the colour mix codes or who could tell me who provided the paint?

    A lot to ask but thank you.

    My Regards, Richard Bagge SE11123
