Restauration and Restoration

The dining experience at Bowcliffe is something we like to share with members so we have decided to launch The Alvis Dining Club at Bowcliffe Hall which will meet every Third Wednesday for lunch in the Drivers Club – July 21st; August 18th; September 15th; October 20th. Why not join us?

If you would like to join us, please leave a reply to make a reservation

Two Three Litres have taken to the road in Switzerland after being restored, a Graber TE21 cabriolet in Lugano and a TC21/100 Tickford in the canton of Zurich.

25526 TC21/100 Tickford

“I want to let you know that we have finished our work on 25526 / JRD 500. We passed the Strassenverkehrsamt Zürich and got the approval to drive around with it.

It was a great pleasure to restore that car and now we can enjoy the beautiful design of the TC 21 drophead. We are getting many compliments.

We plan to come to England to one of the meetings of the Alvis Owner Club, as soon as Covid allows. It probably might be rather 2022 that 2021, but we will see and let you know.

I want to thank you and your colleagues from the Alvis Owner Club, we got valuable help from many people, especially Malcolm Kindell, Chris Prince, Red Triangle, Jonathan Huggett, Richard Bagge, Alan Mills and Dieter Schätti in Switzerland. The AOC is a great thing and I highly appreciate your work and your help.

I look forward to seeing you and your colleagues soon.

Many thanks for your help and all the best

Kind regards

One thought on “Restauration and Restoration”

  1. Hi John,

    Nice to see Bulletin 470 July/August 2001 again in PDF with as Centre Spread 1964 Alvis TE21 DHC 27100.
    However on page 290 it says erroneously the car is owned at the time by L.L. Schapira of Los Angeles.
    In 2001 the car was already for 13 years in the hands of the Van der Weiden family and still is to this very day.

    Regards,
    Coen van der Weiden
