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.

Regards,

Peter.

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.

  1. My name is John Walter Alvis II, I have always been fascinated by the uniqueness of my sir name,
    I live in Texas and I think there are a total of 6 Alvis from Texas to Mississippi I find it ironic that i’m a fire protection engineer here in the states and the Alvis company make fire fighting vehicles. I can only dream one day I may own a Alvis.
    If anyone has any heritage information please let me know.

    I thank anyone who can help !!!!!
