1930 Alvis Silver Eagle 16.95 TB Tourer For Sale

1930 Alvis Silver Eagle 16.95 TB Four Seat Tourer

This fine Silver Eagle was supplied to its first owner in June 1930. It was to remain in the original ownership for many years, before being passed down to the owner’s son. However, the son never used the car, putting it into storage in a timber garage. Years later, the building collapsed on top of the car and was set on fire by vandals. The outcome was that all the original Atlantic Saloon coachwork behind the scuttle was destroyed.

The car was to pass to a new owner in 1984, who spent the next three years restoring it to a very high standard, with exact replica Cross & Ellis tourer coachwork, this being undertaken by Phil Kneller. The restoration was finished in the Summer of 1989 and some 20,000 miles has been covered subsequently and the car has been well maintained over the ensuing years, remaining in first class order and being a delight to drive. This Silver Eagle is the rarer, wide chassis sports model with high ratio rear axle, close ratio gearbox and triple carburettors.

An rear Auster Screen is fitted, which ensures passengers have a relatively draught-free ride and a full tonneau cover is supplied, along with a hood bag and luggage trunk. Also included is a small craftsman made, personalised folding picnic table, two embroidered travel rugs. The Auster Screen also has a lap apron, as originally fitted.

The car is fully equipped for touring and has twin spare wheels, pillar mounted spotlamp and a pair of long range lamps. It has been used for a number of long distance runs over the past few years, including a trip to the Pyrenees.

This superb Alvis is ready to go anywhere, with a comfortable cruising gait of around 55-60 mph.

Much documentation is supplied, including a comprehensive photographic history of the restoration along with numerous receipts etc. Six new Blockley tyres have been fitted recently and the battery has also been replaced.
