Description

1953 ALVIS TA21 CABRIOLET PAR TICKFORD

French title
Chassis n° 25050

• Quality restoration
• Rare model with this bodywork
• Interesting left hand drive

One of the particularities of this Alvis, interesting for European or American enthusiasts, is that it is a rare left-hand drive version. It is in a very good condition, after a restoration carried out around ten years ago by its previous owner. The two-tone color enhances the shape of the design and the interior, with the wooden dashboard and elegant grey leather seats, is reminiscent of the comfort of a British club. The long bonnet conceals a 3-liter in-line 6-cylinder engine which is known for its flexibility, accompanied by the discreet hum of high-quality mechanicals.
This model was unveiled at the 1950 Geneva Motor Show and the bodywork of the convertibles ("drophead coupe", to use the English terminology) was manufactured by Tickford, in an artisanal way and in very small numbers: 302 according to the most reliable sources. This Alvis is rare and reflects the luxury and refinement that characterized this marque, whose models were sold at high prices. This car, on which extensive restoration work has been carried out, perfectly showcases the qualities of this luxurious automobile.

The auction of this lot will take place on Friday 18 March 2022.
