We absolutely love these Alvis 3 Litres here and always try and buy them when we can. We always try and find the later cars in great colours and this is no exception!

Launched in October 1958. the Graber-styled Alvis TD21 was an immediate success; the combination of a luxury interior. elegant bodywork and 100mph performance proving immensely attractive to the well-heeled clientele at which it was aimed.

The Motor described it as having "a Jeeves-like quality of responding to its master's whim". Autocar praised it as "one of the most enchanting owner-driver cars imaginable. quot; singling out the quality of the Park Ward coachwork with doors that "close with a majestic clunk - more like an air of finality than a noise. "

Qualities that were no doubt appreciated by owners as august as the Dukes of Edinburgh and Windsor. Sir Douglas Bader and James Mason – all as quintessentially English as the car.

a torquey 120bhp straight-six engine mated to a four-speed manual gearbox as standard. the car was capable of effortless high speed cruising and handled exceptionally well for such a stately machine. In 1963 it was replaced by the TE21. immediately distinguished by its stacked-headlight front end. another design flourish by Swiss coachbuilder. Graber.

Maximum power was now 130bhp courtesy of a new cylinder head and torque was up to 172lb/ft. with a choice of automatic or five-speed ZF manual gearboxes. Lockheed servo-assisted disc brakes were now standard and power steering was available as an option. Tested by Autocar. a TE21 could reach 60mph in 12. 5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 108mph. An extremely rare car. only 349 were made before it was replaced by the TF in 1966. All are increasingly sought after today.

This stunning. matching numbers. TE21 is finished in Gunmetal Grey with Grey Leather and Blue Carpets. Sitting on Chrome Wire Wheels it is one of the most attractive cars we have seen in a long while. This car features the Automatic gearbox for effortless cruising and drives faultlessly. There is a large history folder with the car including many recent service invoices from Marque specialists. Red Triangle. the last major service being 2013. Over £6k has been spent in the last few years with Red Triangle. keeping the car in top driving and cosmetic condition. There are hundreds of onvoices on file going back to the Eighties. The bodywork is stunning and the leather is original with a lovely patina. You would not change a thing!

The car has had 3 previous long term owners. the last for 19 years. the one before for 8 years before then. It is a local Kent car and carries its original transferable registration number of 8675KX.

MOTd until December 2015. with no advisories. and taxed until next year. it is in constant use. gathering admiring glances as it goes. This thoroughbred will make a most glamorous addition to its new owner's stable. The colours are amazing. the condition superb. we will not find another as attractive as this one!
