1936 Alvis speed 25, charlesworth bodied saloon.
Body no. the details below
3.5 ltr straight six
A very solid original speed 25 with lots of history and original handbook, plus original Alvis records come with the vehicle.
She has recently benefitted from replacement ignition components and brakes.
Cosmetically the bodywork is very original, paint is not the best but has an incredible patina of age. I have not repainted her as I wanted to preserve the patina of the bodywork. The interior is in very good condition.
She was bought new by the Lyle family of Tate & Lyle (famous sugar co.) and has benefitted from sympathetic owners as she is very straight.
She comes with the original registration mark that was issued in 1936 and a set of rare original Ace wheel discs which fit over the wire wheels.
Alvis’s don’t get much more original than this speed 25 and there is no doubt she will live on for many years to come.
The only reason she is up for sale is I am thinning out my collection of classic vehicles.
If your looking for an original Alvis with heaps of history, look no further. They don’t get much more original than this one.
The 12/50 is a significant model in Alvis history for many reasons. It was the car that really marked the arrival of Alvis as a serious and successful car maker and set the standard for the remainder.....
