Chassis nr : 13174 English registration : DRR91. The attentive long term customer will know that a few years ago I advertised this elegant and very rare saloon allready. This car, belonging to my Swedish friend/customer Charlie, was at that time still fitted with a...Jaguar 4.2 engine. It was his previous owner and rather well known Alvis racer, Sunny Strickland, who had had the bright idea to do so in 1987. Luckily, the original 4.3 engine with nr 14204 was still available with the car. I just visited my friend Charlie in Sweden and could see with my own eyes that our decision to fit back the original engine (after a thorough inspection of course) was executed by him with brio. Every Alvis enthusiast must be relieved to know that this rare Vanden Plas saloon is again in its original configuration now. This handsome saloon with attractive colour combination of black over maroon and gorgeous deep red leather interior is, as is generally accepted, one of the best looking designs of the whole Alvis production. In total 198 4.3 chassis were produced and from this pilarless Vanden Plas design probably only 7 or 8. Mechanically, this 4.3 is absolutely tip top. From presentation it is very attractive but one can see that the body restoration was done a while ago (1987). The twin exhaust in stainless steel is a nice extra. My selling price is still the same , 50.000 euro, and if you are really interested, I promise this splendid motorcar will cover the 1500 km from Stockholm to Brussels whithout missing a beat. A unique opportunity !
