1948 ALVIS DUNCAN 2-DOOR COUPE For Sale

To be offered by Silverstone Auctions as part of the 'Silverstone Classic Live Online Sale' on Friday 31st July. Please see our website for full listings and to find out more on how to register for bidding. Lot No. 328 Estimate: £27,000 - £30,000 Buyers Premium 12.5% + VAT Thought to be one of a handful of Duncan-bodied Alvis' remaining! One of only 27 produced in 1947/1948 Manufactured by Ian Duncan, an aeronautical engineer Only a handful are thought to still exist Once recommissioned, this lovely old Alvis will be welcomed at all motoring events This car has formed part of a large collection with little or no use. An element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again NB: The number plate in the pictures is not included in the sale Produced in 1947/8 by Ian Duncan, an aeronautical engineer, the Duncan Alvis was built utilising an Alvis TA 14 chassis and running gear. Weighing in at far less, 2½ tons to be exact, than a regular TA14, the performance, at the time, was spritely compared to its larger sibling and was a much-admired motor vehicle when out on the road, in fact, the four-cylinder engine was reputedly good for a top speed of 75 mph and would cruise happily at 65 mph, with the downside being that in monetary terms, it cost almost twice the amount of the TA14! The example on offer here was first registered in 1948, finished in black with a tan interior it has formed part of a large collection in recent years and has unfortunately sustained some minor damage to the offside rear quarter. However, the rarity of this particular Alvis, being one of only 27 produced, means that it is a desirable item and with an amount of TLC will be something that will be welcomed at motoring events far and wide. It should be noted that during its time within the collection it has received little use and an element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again. Your inspection pre-sale is welcomed and encouraged to appreciate the potential of this rarely offered motor car.
