We are fortunate to have two Alvis owners who have been diligent in recording any snippet of information on cars for the last fifty years or so and know the answers to most questions.
- David Culshaw, Consultant Historian, with a 1959 Graber Special TD21
- David Culshaw retired as Registrar of the Alvis Owner Club in 2012 and is now Consultant Historian to the Trust. He works tirelessly probing, puzzling and solving mysteries. He has already identified hundreds of photos in the archive and continues to do so. Have a look at the P P S page for his latest discovery.
Wayne Brooks lives in Pennsylvania, maintains constant links with the UK and usually adds detail to any enquiry, such as the photos of the Barson Special from his own collection shown below…see Recent Donations page….and Wayne’s 4.3 page

Thank you for this Bulletin.
Arthur James’ daughter is my wife and we still have an Alvis, amongst other cars.
I would be very interested to have a copy of the photo of the Founders if it is possible to send just the picture.
Arthur died in 1980 and his Alvis cars etc were sold at the behest if his then widow.
I was a member of the AOC for very many years owning several Speed 20’s.
I welcome hearing from you.
Alvis owners are a fascinating group of people and of the 11,000 or so who have been members during the last 61 years some have had articles written about them in the Bulletin.
Among the more famous owners is Douglas Bader who owned a series of 3 litre cars.
The following link will bring up the Martin Boothman article on Lance Ware….
From the October 1987 Bulletin….
