The Alvis Three Litre TA 21, is an automobile which was produced by Alvis Cars between 1950 and 1953.
One of the particularities of this Alvis, interesting for European or American enthusiasts, is that it is a rare left-hand drive version. It is in a very good condition, after a restoration carried out around ten years ago by its previous owner. The two-tone color enhances the shape of the design and the interior, with the wooden dashboard and elegant grey leather seats, is reminiscent of the comfort of a British club. The long bonnet conceals a 3-liter in-line 6-cylinder engine which is known for its flexibility, accompanied by the discreet hum of high-quality mechanicals.
This model was unveiled at the 1950 Geneva Motor Show and the bodywork of the convertibles ("drophead coupe", to use the English terminology) was manufactured by Tickford, in an artisanal way and in very small numbers: 302 according to the most reliable sources. This Alvis is rare and reflects the luxury and refinement that characterized this marque, whose models were sold at high prices. This car, on which extensive restoration work has been carried out, perfectly showcases the qualities of this luxurious automobile.
This unique LHD example has undergone engine modification according to TB21 Sports (SU carburettors, 105 hp).
