*Ready for use and offering improvement potential

*Owned by the vendor since 1991


The 1960s saw Alvis and Bristol go head-to-head in a market that quite different from that occupied by Bentley and Rolls-Royce. Alvis and Bristol offered two-door saloons with a refined, rarefied air for those who did not seek attention. Offered here is a 1965 TE21 which, until a few years ago, was used daily for work and pleasure. Ready for immediate use with potential for improvement. Its bodywork is described as good (there is some filler, the vendor notes) while the metallic silver paint is said to be average. The trim and wheels/tyres are in good condition, the vendor says. The interior, with grey seats and blue carpets, is said to be very good, with the dashboard and headlining in a similar order. The heater valve is disconnected. Our vendor says engine starting, running and presentation is good, but there is a slight oil leak. The running gear is vendor-assessed as good and with the benefits of power-assisted steering and disc brakes is said to be a pleasure to drive.
