Alvis 3 1/2 litre


car description

This elegant Alvis 3 ½ Litre was delivered as chassis number 13126 with engine number 13576 on 8 th January 1936 to Follett of London . It was bodied by the Mayfair Carriage Company of Edgware Road, London with the sedanca coupe coachwork it carries to this day. It was first owned by Captain the Honourable Henry Rogers Broughton (who later became Lord Fairhaven) and we have log books dating back to 1946 when Captain Broughton still owned the car. These, along with letters from various owners including Lord Fairhaven’s son, tell us the names of every owner from 1936 right up to the present day. As far as I can see, although the car has been maintained it has never been restored which is a great credit to Alvis and Mayfair as it is in really lovely lightly patinated condition. If I am right about it being largely untouched then it must be one of the most original cars of its era you are likely to come across. The bodywork is very sound and rattle free and is remarkably free of signs of ageing. The quality of the exterior paint finish, allowing for reasonable wear here and there, is really nice with a deep black shine. The interior trim and upholstery are in very good condition consid
