Driving Alvis cars since 1964 and the website since 2012

  1. It is a delight to see so many Alvii on your excellent site. Something I notice about the TD’s ,TE’s and if there is one a TF’ is that their front number plate seems to be hard jammed up against their front bumper. I have always found that this masks the air scoop for the radiator and in this hot weather it does make a difference . I have my front number plate a good two inches below the Bumper. I never overheat…. well only once through altitude in the Pyrennees.

  2. I went to a British Car Day here a few years ago, where one Alvis was a FWD. A very low body, so low you’d easily touch the ground from the driver’s set by the look of it. Not a body that would win any beauty contests though.

  3. what a super location and great collection of cars
    I didn’t see any TC21/100’s
    I am restoring one of these from a “box of bits” so would be nice to see a complete car so I could take or get some pictures of how things should be

    1. Good luck with your restoration. I have a TC21, no 25183, which I bought in 1967 from a garage in Louth which went bust and towed home behind a Landie, George Jacklin in the driving seat and no floor!
      Don’t turn over the engine without the distributor and its spacer in situ or you’ll strip the gearing on the camshaft, which is why the garage in Louth went bust – I’ve two wrecked skew gears and camshafts!
