14689 Speed 25 Georgano

14689 EVC 564 Speed 25 was dispatched on 18 October 1940 the last Speed 25 built. Within a month the dreadful Coventry air raid had happened, so this must have been one of the last cars to escape. This photograph was taken at Hershey at the annual swapmeet in October 1979, when the car was in the ownership of Glen Cameron. The car went to the United States in 1973 when Bruce Earlin bought it from the second owner who claimed that Alvis had used it as a works car before selling it. Bruce had the metallic green paint replaced by a scheme using two grades of silver before selling the car to Glen Cameron in 1978.Today 8 owners have been recorded and the car was recorded as being in Palermo, Sicily but more recently in Suffolk.
