NJJ 582 was supplied by Brooklands of Bond Street in March 1953 to Mr Hardy of Bexley Kent. I have the original buff Log Book. It is a unique classic car due to it’s relative rarity, quality build and performance.
My wife and I own a number of classic cars and this was a model that she liked. I didn’t know much about Alvis, other than it was a prestigious marque, but when I found it had a 3 litre straight six engine, we started to look for one. The engine by the way is a delight. The TA21 usually had a single carburettor, however this one has twin SUs, a modification carried out from new, I would think.
If you are interested in the TA21, it’s not easy to find a good one, I believe there are about 300 left. We attend some shows each year and it’s not unusual to see plenty of Bentleys and Rolls Royce, but Alvis, no, Bertie always gets lots of attention.
The car is in excellent condition mechanically, the previous owner had it about 5 years and in that time spent of £4,500, covering about 3,500 miles in that time. I have all of the Mots dating back to 2002 and from that date to present it has covered around 8000 miles. It runs perfectly with no issues, and the brakes are very good.
The interior is excellent, there is some wear on the leather front seats, mostly the driver’s of course, but as they are original, that is to be expected.
In respect of the bodywork and chassis, there are no rust problems and no obvious bodges. I’d say there are no filled areas.
The car has just been serviced and is ready to be enjoyed. An Mot will be supplied if required.
