1935 Alvis Silver Eagle 43,842 (Not Warranted) £14,580.00 + buyers premium


We are delighted to offer this excellent example of a 1934 Alvis Silver Eagle S.F 16/95. Powered by a 6 cyl 2148cc engine rated at 16.2HP. Coach builders Cross and Ellis. The history file on this car is huge and includes the buff logbook, Alvis build sheet, record of all previous owners from 1934 (10 inc the vendor) and photo records of the engine rebuild.
The car was collected by a previous owner of 26 years from Surrendell Farm, one-time hideaway of Roddy Llewellyn and royal personage! A protracted but thorough re-build put the car into good condition. All its numbers match, the registration mark, engine and body number (Cross and Ellis no 4052) are all original, the latter being a rare survival on an Alvis. The car is to original specification with the following known exceptions: 12 Volt battery replaces the pair of 6 volts, a -shield is fitted between carbs and exhaust manifold, an S.U electric fuel pump replaces the mechanical pump and a modern temperature gauge is fitted.
During the restoration the bearings were re-metalled, crankshaft/flywheel assembly dynamically balanced, timing chain tensioner refurbished. A P.D Gough stainless exhaust system is fitted. The car was totally rewired and winking indicator added. Starter motor was reconditioned.
The ash-frame was partly replaced with new ash members. The original rexine roof covering was replaced professionally with new padding and vinyl. New aluminium wings and steel running boards were fitted. All leather and wood trim is original and renovated. The door inner skins and the interior panels were all put onto new plywood and new carpets and headlining were fitted.

This car along with its history file needs to be seen to be appreciated.
