1963-1967 ALVIS TE21/TF21


Overview

Easily distinguished from its TD predecessor by those stacked twin headlamps that were so fashionable in the early 1960s, the TE gained a new cylinder head that lifts power output to 130bhp. Both saloon and drophead were available, and it’s the latter that makes serious money today. Power steering became a desirable option from 1965, but Alvis saved the best for last. Just 106 TFs were built, but they come with a triple-carb 150bhp engine, improved gearbox and uprated suspension. After 1967 Alvis concentrated on armoured vehicles.
