MUA 57 – where are you now? Acquired by William Frank Blatley from Peter Thorpe in about 1958

Steve Horne has reviewed a new Alvis book by Matthew Vale – see Book Review

One thought on “Fourteens, a new book and Alvibatics”

  1. You may be interested to know that in Smith-Clarke’s pocket diary for 1937 is written: ‘Mr John gave orders for the production of 1000. 14 hp, Four Cylinder cars’.
    I came across this in my research for the biography of ‘The Captain’ I’m writing.
