Footnotes

  • Alvis recommenced production after WW2 with a range little altered from that of 1939, the 12/70 - first introduced in 1938 - reappearing as the TA14, the most obvious difference being the adoption of steel disc wheels in place of wires. An uncomplicated, separate-chassis design, the TA14 was powered by an overhead-valve four-cylinder engine of 1,892cc and featured beam-axle front suspension and mechanical brakes. The gearbox was a synchromesh four-speeder, and with 65bhp available the TA14 was good for 75mph. Testing a TA14 in 1946, Autocar praised its excellent tractability, well-spaced gear ratios and powerful brakes, concluding that the car's 'very high level of excellence puts this Alvis right in the front rank.'

    This rare TA14 shooting brake was supplied in chassis form to Brooklands of Bond Street Ltd and first registered in September 1947. Purchased in 1978 and fully restored to show standard in 1980, 'FVE 609' won the concours at that year's South West Alvis Owner Club Day event and was featured in Automobile Quarterly. A misfire resulted in the car being laid up in 1988 and it has not been used since then. Surprisingly sound and a good basis for restoration, this rare Alvis shooting brake is offered with copy Car Record; an old-style continuation logbook; V5 registration document; expired MoT (1986); and numerous bills from marque specialists Red Triangle. It should be noted that the engine is seized.
