Alvis Speed Models in Detail

Resumé - The Alvis Speed models of the 1930s were and still are among the most desirable high-performance cars of their decade. Less expensive than the Bentley or Lagonda, classier than the SS Jaguar, and more advanced than any of them, the Alvis earned a special cachet as the sporting gentleman motorist's favoured choice, exerting a magnetic appeal to connoisseurs of good engineering and fast driving. With their long, low build they also inspired some of the most stylish coachwork of the era.
As the author of this book observes, it is remarkable that such a relatively small concern as the Alvis company was able to design, engineer, produce and maintain the continuous development if this sophisticated series of cars. In addition, it was Alvis, in the Speed Twenty, which pioneered such major industry innovations as independent front suspension and an all-synchromesh gearbox.

The book opens with an introduction highlighting the pleasures of Speed model motoring, followed by an exposition of the background that led to the introduction of the Speed Twenty in 1932. Then comes a highly detailed technical analysis of the Speed Twenty itself, covering every aspect of the chassis, running gear, engine and transmission. This sets the scene for the chapters which follow, on the SA/SB/SC/SD Speed Twenty models, the 3 1/2-litre, the Speed Twenty Five and the ultimate expression of the marque, the 4.3. Each of these receives comprehensive treatment, including information on differences from previous models, revisions and production changes, the range of bodies available from coachbuilders, performance and behaviour, and appearances in competitive events.
For owners, present and prospective, there are chapters on using a Speed model today and on the practicalities of ownership, including advice on parts availability, fuels, lubricants, maintenance and preservation.
Five outstanding examples of the cars have been specially photographed for the book and are featured in some 70 colour shots. There are also more than 140 black-and-white photographs drawn from the archives as well as from Alvis sales and publicity material.

Alvis Three Litre in Detail - TA21 to TF21, 1950-67

Resumé - From its launch in 1950 to its demise in 1967 the Alvis Three Litre enjoyed a deserved reputation for effortless performance, exceptional surefootedness and stability, and irreproachable quality of construction. Thoroughout production the Three Litre was based on the same chassis and was powered by the same engine. This was a handsome and efficient short-stroke six-cylinder, conceived in order to provide the driver with ample power over a very wide rev range. Starting with an output of 83bhp in the early TA21, this robust unit was progressively developed to supply 150bhp in its final TF21 form while retaining the turbine smoothness, reliability and lack of temperament that it had become celebrated for. It was perfectly matched to the chassis and running gear.

This book opens with an exposition of the background to the company's introduction of the Three Litre in 1950. Then comes a detailed technical analysis of the TA21, covering all aspects of the chassis, running gear, engine and transmission. This sets the scene for the chapters which follow, on the short-lived TB21 sports tourer, the TC21 and the uprated TC21/100, the Graber-inspired TC108/G, the outstandingly handsome TD21 Series I and II, the TE21 and the TF21. Each of these receives comprehensive treatment, including differences from previous models, production changes and full chassis number listings, along with notes on famous owners and screen appearances. The author provides extensive information on the coachbuilders who supplied Three Litre bodies, including Mulliners, Tickford, Graber, Willowbrook and Park Ward, and there are chapters devoted to the Alvis-powered Healey G Series sports car, the aborted Issigonis-designed Alvis TA350, and the ownership and use of Alvis Three Litre models today.
Five outstanding examples of the cars have been specially photographed for this book and are featured in some 75 colour shots. There are also more than 140 black-and-white illustrations drawn from archives as well as from Alvis sales and publicity material.
