Beautifully composed and photographed of all versions I prefer the Mono perhaps because itís in keeping
With the era.

A fine-looking example of a post-vintage Alvis. I wonder if the silver hare mascot is an original?
I was brought up with the earlier model, the 12/50, of which my father had two - a 'beetle-back' as the family / work car and a 'ducks-back' sports-car which he restored. In the early 1950s they were merely old cars, so they cost peanuts, which is why we could afford to run the pair!

Thanks for the memories, Tom!

Great photographs of a rare car which looks in showroom condition. The mono perhaps has more impact as it reflects the vintage of the car.

The car is bankable, Dave, been appreciating nicely - about £55K and likely to keep going up, so interest may cover fuel costs. Go on - you know you want to - it's calling for you Dave - it knows your name now. Gorgeous old thing, though. Smile

You are, of course, right. My thinking being a little on the side of short sighted, I shall immediately ( well, after dark) take spade to the underside of the old rose bush, dig up the well wrapped and little used, family sawn off, and apply a little WD40 (other lubricants are available) for a withdrawal as soon as the banking business day starts. Expect to see the result, successful or otherwise, advertised on Police Five courtesy of the one eyed lodger shortly. Smile
