1948 Alvis TA 14 Saloon - Excellent value with new MOT & Service SOLD

Click here for more info / photos
This lovey, usable Alvis TA14 Saloon has nicely aged since a 1990ís restoration. The car has been with the same family for over fourteen years and has been maintained by Alvis experts Red Triangle. Receipts from Red Triangle dated between 2003 and 2007 total in the region of £3,500 maintenance work and from 2007 to 2017 the Alvis has only occasionally been used. Earlier in 2017 the Alvis was transported to Red Triangle and has just had over £1000 spent on fitting a brand new SU fuel pump, cleaning the fuel lines, fitting a new high torque starter motor and new battery.

Whilst in more regular use between 2003 and 2007, the Alvis had regularly servicing with Red Triangle, plus work to include fitting new front springs, fitting a re-bushed advance lever and pivot, replacing the throttle control ball joint, replacing the steering drag link, re-lining all brakes, fitting new king pin bushes, front compensator bushes and brake actuator boots. Other work included replacing the N/S and O/S front brake rod gaiters, replacing wiper arms and fitting a new carburettor flexi hose. Since this work minimal mileage has been covered in the car.

On arrival the Alvis was checked over in our workshop and will be supplied to its next owner with a full 12 months MOT. The Alvis has a lovely, sweet engine offering excellent performance and very good oil pressure. The engine runs beautifully and on tick over is notably quiet. It has a lovely exhaust note; the gearbox feels tight and the car charges and starts reliably. We've identified some work required and this will be taken care of within our sale price. This will include overhauling the steering box, replacing the aged tyres, carrying out a full service and supplying the Alvis with a 12 months MOT. Although due to the age of the car an MOT isn't a legal requirement, we like to submit our cars for an MOT test to give buyer confidence that the vehicle is being supplied in full roadworthy condition.

JYD 890 has 20 year old paintwork with a deep shine, it's far from perfect but does still present well with a nice level of patina. Having been painted in 1995, we would expect some minor blemishes and imperfections. The chrome work is bright but does have some light pitting, the interior is delightful having been fully re-trimmed in Bedford Cord. Carpets are of lovely quality; the seats are beautifully trimmed and the headlining is very smart indeed. This Alvis TA 14 Saloon is ideal of shows, regular use and some touring. It will handle longer distances confidently and due to its nicely aged, older restored appearance, it's a car that really can be used, driven and enjoyed all year round. It's certainly not a show car, but if represents excellent value for money, particularly when considering the work included within the sale price.
