Alvis cars were produced by the Alvis Car and Engineering Company Ltd in Conventry, England from 1919 to 1967. The company also produced aircraft engines and military vehicles, the latter even after car production had ceased.
Before the outbreak of the Second World War, the 12/70 with a 4-cylinder engine, 1842cc and 63 hp still went into production. It was the car that was the first to be modified after the war and was launched on the market as the T14. In 1940 the car production was temporarily stopped.
This Alvis 12/70 was lovingly and perfectly built by a specialist. For example, he moved the carburetor system to the outside to eliminate the problem of heat buildup directly at the cylinder head, thus eliminating any problems with steam bubbling. Also the external racing exhaust system and the Brooklands discs identify this oldtimer as a racing car.
The last owner installed a more powerful engine from England with about 90 hp for about CHF 25’000.- and regularly participated in various concours, mountain and regularity races. The original engine was also overhauled, has since then run about 3’500 km and comes with the car.
The Alvis 12/70 Special offered here is in absolutely perfect condition. It has been continuously improved and always top maintained. At the end of 2019 the cylinder heads were revised and at the end of 2020 new tires were mounted. Many documents such as Alvis 12/70 manual of instructions, Catalogue of spare parts, neatly kept service booklet, FiA-Historic Regularity Car Passport (HRCP), VIVA Identity Card etc. are present.
This is the perfect opportunity to acquire a pre-war car that is ready for immediate use, guaranteed to be an eye-catcher and with which you will be welcome at all meetings.
