RetroMarques Ltd is pleased to offer for sale on behalf of the owner ‘111 DDA’, a 1965 Alvis TE21...

An opportunity to own a rare Alvis TE21 Saloon, one of only 352 made with 273 understood to remain on the road in the UK.

111DDA was purchased by the recent, long-term owner, remaining with him from 1973 until July 2016. That owner – Mr Daniels - was himself a motor engineer and the present condition of the car, most notably regarding the underside and mechanicals, are testament to his expertise and care.

Details:

  • Alvis TE21 Series III Saloon (by Park Ward)
  • Chassis No: 27235
  • Engine Number: 27235
  • First registered: 24 February 1965
  • Colour: British Racing Green
  • Trim: (Dark) Red leather and matching wool carpet

History File & Equipment:

  • Previous V5 and Green Logbook (copy)
  • Listing showing all major events (storage, rebuild, MoTs etc) since 1973 and showing original mileage accrued to the present 73,830 miles
  • Alvis TE21 Manual of Instructions (original handbook)
  • There is a bootful of spares and manuals, some touch-up paint and 2 seat frames.

Work Listed:

  • 1983: extensive bodywork repairs (sills, front wings, rear wings etc) and mechanical
  • 1991: Stainless exhaust & mountings, engine mountings, head gasket
  • 1997: Clutch kit, suspension work
  • 2000s: Various routine maintenance jobs
  • 2016: Full service
  • 2017: New carpet set, paintwork

There are barely a handful of TE21s on the market and 111 DDA represents an opportunity to purchase a car with extensive history, plenty of recent maintenance, a new carpet set and some paintwork rectification.

She starts without fuss and shows strong oil pressure. Quite light on the controls and almost silent when running, she’s a joy to drive and with the generous rear seats makes for an ideal touring car no matter whether 2 or 4-up!

In summary, a very presentable TE21 yet with just a nice degree of patina and a car which has obviously been very well cared for; a car to drive and enjoy!

Price: £37,500 ovno
