1952 ALVIS TB 21 Sports Tourer
Alvis Car and Engineering Co. Ltd. was a british company in
Coventry from 1919 to 1967. In 1968 the company sold its designs, customer records etc. to Red triangle of England (still in operation). The Alvis TB 21 was a two seater open car (right hand drive) only made in 1952. Of the 32 ALVIS motor cars produced only 8 are in the USA AND only ONE, this one, was produced as a prototype left hand drive 4-seater for the American Market. Shortly after production began, the project ws scrapped due to high cost of manufacture which made THIS car a one-off.
In 1952 following the discontinuance of production THIS car was sold to the ALVIS dealer in New Zealand. It remained in New Zealand until 2000 when it was sold to an individual in Southern Germany. Finally, after over sixty years, this prototype car came to America, as was originally intended.
