New photos have been added to the site covering some of the car models, coachbuilders and products together with some press cuttings of “Used Cars on the Road” and Road Tests.
The owner of this 1953 TA21 Tickford in the 1960s is keen to find if it still exists.
Our records only go up to 1974 when LER 834 was in Naples, Italy. Does anyone know where it is now?
Did you know Alvis manufactured colour printers?
A new page Printers has more photos and a video link.

The photo of John Parkes was taken at a post war Motor Show. The other person could be the MD of Brooklands of Bond Street.
My records indicate that Trevor Eastwood of Western Australia owns the Speed 20 with top mounted windscreen wipers. John Lang

Believed to have had 6 Sydney owners before it was purchased by Toby Clement of Earlwood, NSW. Photo is of car when Clement owned it. Bought by Cunningham circa 1960 when car was in poor condition. Sold as was to Peter Pemberton of Connells Point, NSW in July 1967. In 1970 was sold to Bob Higgins of Toukley, NSW in 1970. In April 2002, as a deceased estate, was sold at auction to Trevor Eastwood, West Perth WA
Further information about the Eastwood car – earlier in the year Trevor and his wife drove the car more than 3,500km from Perth to Melbourne to take part in both the Centenary Down Under and Alvis Centenary tours and back to Perth following the tours. John Lang
Re: Clements car photo, this photo appeared on the front cover of the April 1958 “ALVIBATICS*”, with a current NSW Alvis Car Club member, Mr Alan Griffin (then Vice-President) standing along side of the car. Mr Griffin, now resides in Surrey, UK.
The event was at the now defunct Pitt Town airstrip (NSW) some time prior to photo publication. Possibly the 1954 meeting.
* Alvibatics is the official journal of the Alvis Car Club of NSW, Australia.
