A very nice example with good history, the first lady owner dealt in diamonds and took many trips to Holland in this car. 3 owners from new, 67000 miles. Well maintained and serviced. Re-sprayed 2001. 4-speed manual, power steering, wire wheels. Original interior. Full history.
This very usable example of the later Alvis TD21 has the manual 4-speed gearbox, wire wheels and the lusty 3 litre, 6 cylinder Alvis engine. Cruising happily in the 70 mph bracket.

Mechanically excellent. No power steering. A nice usable motor car. Lots of history and many bills.

This explains why the car has the appearance of a Series II with Series I features such as rear brake drums. Further interest is the car was also owned by a former Alvis Owners Club Director and archivist. This special car even has interesting mileage history making it truly unique. First registered on the 14th March 1962 and left the factory in Metallic Grey P.500 with wire wheels and was registered with the desirable registration mark of 1626 UK. In 1974 the Alvis was sold to a Mr Hull of Ford dealership John D Hull in Spennymoor, County Durham. The car was purchased with a recorded mileage of 15000 when just twelve years old. MOT’s from 1974 show very low annual use, taking the recorded mileage today to 26,000. The car wa
