Library additions

Some new pictures have been posted on the Speed 25 page and the Silver Eagle page including details of a Silver Eagle special being sold from a deceased estate.

The son of a former SA owner is trying to trace a car:

I talked to your good people at the Classic Car Show (NEC) about an Alvis Speed 20 owned by my father. I attach photos of the car, taken from an Isle of Man Tourist Board film made in the late 50’s or early 60’s. It had, I understand, raced on the Island before WWII – perhaps in the Mannin Beg race/s ? It carried the registration JMN 849. I would be very interested indeed to hear if you have any knowledge of the car.   Best regards   Peter Standen

Thanks to enthusiastic scanning of our archive material by Chris Bluer we have enhanced the COACHWORK page with more period announcements from Autocar. We are grateful to Haymarket for permission to reproduce these items.

Among the library additions is a montage of Speed reviews from the 1950s:Two further Used Cars on the Road Tests have been added to the page Speed 20 SA

A recent auction found a new home for a one owner TD21 Series II drophead but had little pre-sale publicity.

The deceased AOC member had a further three Alvis which we are trying to trace.

  1. I am trying to trace an Alvis estate car owned/run by my father in the early 50s Registration FA9059. Any information about this car would be very welcome.
