1937 Alvis 12/70 Mulliners Sport Saloon SOLD

1937 Alvis 12/70 Mulliners Sport Saloon. Blue over Cream with Blue leather upholstery. The Alvis 12/70 was announced by Alvis cars 22 September 1937. It was a four-cylinder sports saloon or 4-seater drophead coupé related to the pricier six-cylinder Alvis Silver Crest. The standard catalogued four-door four-seater saloon or two-door four-seater drophead coupé bodywork was made for Alvis by Mulliners of Birmingham.
It was described by a motoring correspondent of The Times as follows: The four-door body has four side windows and makes a comfortable four-seater; the doors have roll armrests and ashtrays and there is a central pull-down rest. The rear windows are "carried well back and allow a very fair view". The doors have slip pockets and glass louvres that conform to the body's lines. There is a cupboard in the instrument panel and the instruments and ashtray are centrally placed. There are two-way visors, independent wiper controls (left and right), a spring steering wheel and in its centre ignition, dip and switch (headlights), signalling and horn controls. There are ventilators in the scuttle, a sliding roof and a fully opening windscreen. The front seats are adjustable, the backrests will tip up and beneath them there are floor wells for the feet of the back passengers. A stabilising bumper and two horns are fitted at the front. This fully-sorted, matching numbers example has been owned by a Classic Car Museum Proprietor and used only occasionally for Vintage Car Club Events. It has always been maintained to the highest order and there is evidence of around £14,000 expenditure, including a complete engine rebuild by Earley Engineering the top Alvis Specialist, this alone cost nearly £8,000! Other works included:- King pins & bushes. Rear springs. Steering rack. Carburettor. Shock absorbers. Stainless steel exhaust. New clutch. New wiring loom. Front & rear engine mounts. 2-tone paint job. Headlamp restoration. Re-chrome radiator & new badge & eagle mascot. Re-chrome bumpers. Re-upholstered front bucket seats in leather. Understandably it drives great, a good testament to the factory that built it and the previous careful ownership. The bodywork has benefited from a recent professional restoration and looks stunning. The leather front seats are newly re-trimmed, the rest of the interior is nicely patinated with that delicious pre-war aroma. The doors close with a reassuring clunk/click so reminiscent of hand built coachwork. This very attractive, driver-friendly car, truly embodies the essence of 1930’s era British motoring for a very modest outlay and could even be used as practical daily transport. Comes with a stack of old bills, previous MOT’s, Old tax discs. Copy factory build sheet, Old green logbook, Original Alvis Owner’s manual. Valuable cherished plate 1567 FS. Car jack & starting handle. 2 x framed pre-war Alvis 12/70 adverts from the Museum display stand. Absolutely any inspection is welcome and viewing is highly recommended. All major debit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.
