1951-1951 ALVIS TB21 specifications

1951-1951 ALVIS TB21 specifications Classic and Performance Car

Alvis launched the TB21 to replace the TB14, which had been a huge commercial failure, but – unlike the TB14 – the new model had a much more conventional grille and was widely lauded as a great-looking sports car. The TB21 used the same chassis as the TA21, and AP Metalcraft modified its TB14 bodyshell to fit the upgraded chassis. The new car was also fitted with the TA21’s 90bhp engine, giving it sprightly performance. However, it was expensive, being pitched at £1598. The result: a mere 31 cars were produced.
