A large powerful car; The apogee of pre war Alvis cars with just 204 examples having been built before WW2 interrupted play. This car wears handsome four seat drop head coachwork by Abbey Coach builders of Acton. The 4. 3 litre capacity & 7 bearing crank allied to triple carbs makes for a very sporting piece of machinery.

The car is in splendid condition having had much recent work done to it including new paint of shell grey over midnight blue & a new leather interior in burgundy/black. The car comes with a vast assortment of bills covering the recent work totaling many many thousands of pounds. £14k on paint & £8k on leather alone. To the front are massive P100 headlamps & a pair of spots giving a very imposing frontal appearance indeed.

The car starts readily & pulls strongly up to modern speeds where it will cruise comfortably all day. The gear box is a paragon of virtue & must be one of the best made pre war anywhere. It boasts superb synchro-mesh on all four forward gears & is a pleasure to use; way ahead indeed of many of its contemporaries. Period tests at the time record that the 4. 3 Alvis was the first saloon to be capable of breaking the Magic 100MPH barrier.

The car is very Derby Bentley like in appearance. but of a slightly more sporting bent & easier to drive with is superb 'box. In stock now. it is ready for viewing. The car has a capacious boot for touring luggage & a full tool kit which folds out of the lid. A hood bag is also present to tidy away the hood & give the car a svelte appearance roof down.
