Following the end of World War II. Alvis re-emerged with a
revised range of passenger cars. They had been kept busy building
military vehicles during the war so were able to revert to
peacetime products fairly quickly. As with most other
manufacturers. there was no time or money to develop new products;
therefore the new TA14 was really a freshened-up model of the
pre-war 12/70 which was first introduced in 1938. and the most
obvious difference being the adoption of steel disc wheels in place
of wires. Alvis had always sold well-built cars with sporting
pretensions. The TA14 offered little in terms of real performance
but did come well equipped and beautifully finished. The TA14 used
an 1892cc. four cylinder engine and rigid axles at the front and
rear. Although most TA14's were 'Sports Saloons' a few carried
drophead coupé coachwork with some built by Tickford.

This interesting example appears to have had the chassis
shortened and would be an excellent candidate for hill climb
events. Having been dry stored for a number of years. the vendor
has started the engine and we are assured she runs smoothly and
quietly. The previous custodian of this TA14 has done a little
investigating and it appears the body was by 'Sherwood Engineering'
- although we have nothing to substantiate this; the Alvis Owners
Club are of the opinion that this is likely to be the only such
example in existence. A history file accompanies the Alvis together
with a V5 registration document. Whilst in need of a little time
and investment. this is an opportunity to purchase a unique Alvis
for a modest outlay.
