Coachwork by Charlesworth

*One of the fastest British sporting cars of its day
*One of only 62 drophead coupés by Charlesworth
*Original colour combination
*Recent extensive renovation

This splendid example wears drophead coupé coachwork by the Coventry firm of Charlesworth, a company perhaps best known for its contract work for various manufacturers, most notably Alvis, as well as bespoke designs on other high quality chassis. Alvis built 391 Speed Twenty-Five chassis, of which only 62 were completed with Charlesworth's drophead coupé coachwork. This car was delivered new to one S P Parker of Chorley, Lancashire on 9th April 1937 and is reported to have undergone a total restoration to original specification in the 1990s.

While in the current owners care the Alvis has benefited from the expert attention of world-famous marque specialists Red Triangle, there being 11 bills on file relating to extensive refurbishment carried out during 2018 totalling in excess of £22,000. The car also comes with current MoT and a V5C Registration Certificate. Capable of nearly 100mph, this stylish Alvis Speed Twenty-Five drophead affords the exciting prospect of high-performance touring in the grand manner.
