c.1949 Alvis TA14, project Registration number not registered, Chassis number plate missing. Engine number unknown. Testing Alvis's 1.9-litre TA14 sports saloon in 1946, Autocar found the new model, "the most attractive car of its size which the well known company has produced, because it adds to the typical Alvis sure-footed and lively performance on the road a degree of all-round refinement which is quite impeccable. It steers lightly and with a confident certainty, and holds the road to perfection; the suspension is not hard, but most comfortable, the engine is very smooth and quite quiet, and the engine mounting conceals how many cylinders there are". The car's excellent tractability, well-spaced gear ratios and powerful brakes all came in for praise, Autocar concluding that the TA14's, "very high level of excellence puts this Alvis right in the front rank". This example has been owned for many years by our deceased vendor. He restored another example in this auction and had another project/spares car, also in the auction. Prospective buyers should satisfy themselves as to the completeness of this vehicle. There is no paperwork with it.
