ALVIS CAR CLUB

For a short period in the 1930s it is believed the Company encouraged the formation of a Club. In the 1980s the Register looked into this and the following article is reproduced with acknowledgement.origins-bulletin-article-001-2origins-bulletin-article-002-2origins-bulletin-article-003-3origins-bulletin-article-003-4

The reproduction ACC badge

The latest creation is  a reproduction of the pre-war Alvis Car Club badge of 1934, dimensions 70 x 75mm, (2.75″ x 2.95″) which is identical with the original except for the method of attachment

The original has a soldered 35 mm diam. round clip attached that means attachment to only a round bar (headlamp or otherwise) of that diameter, whereas the new fixing is two 3 mm soldered nuts for fixing with set screws, that will allow attachment by a similar round clip method or attach to a grille or vertical flat pillar; it would be easy to cut flat brass (chromium-plated) or stainless steel as a standard pillar with two holes aligning with the vertical nuts on the badge and with two horizontal holes at the base which would act as a mounting for a badge-bar (20mm) with clip-type type mounting. Some may wish to fit it to the 50mm dumb-iron between the chassis rails or even the vertical louvres of a later Alvis radiator. Hence, the need for a universal fixing on the badge itself.

As there is also interest in the lapel badge this is also being costed for production.

All expressions of interest have been logged by Steve Horne who will respond to all enquiries.
