1964 Alvis TE21 DHC, 60K Miles, Last Owner 33 Years For Sale

See our Alvis road test video here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVv0-rBiTL0 This wonderful, largely original Alvis TE21 DHC arrives with us having covered just 60,000 miles from new and has been with its last owner for 33 years. JTF 866B was manufactured on the 23rd January 1964 and delivered to Brooklands of Bond Street Limited, London on the 3rd February 1964. The Alvis left the factory in Midnight Blue with Blue leather, Blue carpets and Blue hood and is today is still in its correct colour combination retaining its original leather upholstery. What is remarkably special is that this Alvis has never required a major restoration and has been kept in strong mechanical condition its entire life. Equally as impressive is the fact the upholstery has been preserved as well as possible so after 56 years still looks fabulous. To ensure the car has survived and been kept up to such a high standard, its owners have made sure regular maintenance has been in place, and kept a very comprehensive history file with over 90 invoices for various service work and maintenance dating back prior to 1970's. Invoices on file total less than £1000 during the late 1970's and 1980's and the most recent owner took ownership in 1987 when the Alvis had covered a genuine mileage of 49600 miles. In 33 years, the Alvis has covered little over 10,000 miles and has been incredibly well stored and maintained. Remarkably, the maintenance over 33 years totals around £15,000 proving what an incredibly robust, reliable, and useable car this is. 20 MOT certificates have been kept on file throughout the 33 years of ownership, along with a whole host of tax discs showing that whilst mileage has been kept low, it has been kept on the road for the majority of the time. It has required no major mechanical work as annual and regular servicing has been excellent, and the long term owner had the mentality of carrying out any work when recommended as indicated within the 90 individual invoices with the car. The most significant work carried out on the car was when marque specialists fitted a new main rear oil seal back in 1998, and at the same time fitted a complete new clutch assembly, new stainless exhaust front pipes and silencers, new engine mounts, new heater hoses, new rear springs and bushes and checking and setting carburetors. This work added to £1939.84 over twenty years ago and 4000 miles have been covered since then. From 2016 to 2019 the Alvis wasn't used, and in early 2019 went back to the same marque specialists for around £2000 of work to include servicing, a fresh MOT, a new high torque starter motor, new propshaft universal joints, new brake pistons and cylinders, new anti-roll bar bushes and general maintenance of the brakes. The Alvis has covered minimal mileage since and has arrived with us in lovely useable condition. On initial road test its clear this is a superbly maintained, high quality gentleman's car. It is glorious on the road, it feels relaxed, long legged, the engine feels wonderful with exceptionally good oil pressure, the five speed ZF gearbox changes beautifully, it steers correctly, and the brakes pull up straight. There is no doubt why these beautiful Alvis cars are so desirable for long distance touring, it is a truly enjoyable experience being behind the wheel of this fabulous original car. Furthermore, a car that's never been dismantled, a car that has not been left to ruin can drive so differently to a restored car; this feels correct, drives exactly as it should and is most certainly a ‘proper' car. Finally, JTF 866B presents as a lovely honest motor car with an excellent straight body and its delightfully aged paintwork. The hood is in lovely condition, the original leather still nicely presented, wood dashboard is first class and the carpets that were replaced around 30 years ago are in beautiful condition. The engine bay is indeed very nicely presented, as is the boot compartment. If looking for a largely original, low mileage Alvis TE21 DHC with history, provenance and in good all-round useable condition, this car should prove a wonderful find.
