Registered as 1953 Alvis TC 21 two seater sports.
V5c in my name.
Running and driving with brakes. Lots of work carried out. New clutch- alternator -brake lines- rewired etc. Working indicators and lights. Tyres as new.
When bought it had a stuck valve and the cylinder head was removed to rectify this and bores were found to be in excellent condition. Seats are tatty and would be better replaced with low bucket ones. A few minor bits and bobs to do ( no real cost involved ) and adjustments to make eg brakes , clutch , tracking and checking over.
It is 4.1 metres ( 160 inch ) in length and 1.6 metre ( 63 inch ) in width.
Transportation can be arranged - payment prior.
