Visiting the archives

The meeting prior to the AGM of the AOC was an opportunity to make a presentation to the Board and Officers about the work of the trustees and for those interested in such things to visit our archives at Bowcliffe Hall.

Rob Onslow was alone in driving his Alvis some 250 miles from Perthshire while older Directors resorted to the three pointed star for their similar mileage from the south.

We received an enquiry about a rare Alvis resident in India – you identify the model and coachbuilder?

A reminder that we hold the stock of Roy Probert’s book – here is the review from the VSCC editor when it was first published kindly forwarded by John Boswell who now handles all enquiries on Leonides matters:

We have an attractive offer on this book for new members joining in October, please leave a reply if you would a copy. See also AERO ENGINES

  1. In addition to Wayne’s pronouncement, a 3.5 Litre chassis is confirmed in the image by the Crested Eagle type twin air filters (as opposed to the Burgess single air-silencer on the Speed 25 and 4.3) and the twin Andre Telecontrol shock absorber fillers under-bonnet. These were replaced on the Speed 25 and 4.3 models with the Luvax with ‘finger-tip’ fascia control and the Spill-Valve under-bonnet.
