Alvis Speed 25 Charlesworth DHC 1938 RHD There is the saying: " If you want a stable friendship, get a horse. " Well, the saying should be expanded to 'my' Alvis Speed 25 Charlesworth DHC, which comes back to my classic car stable for the 3-rd time now. Also this time I am very happy to see this magnificent motorcar being part of my classic car collection again. Only 16 examples were produced with this stylish & desirable late Charlesworth design characteristic because of the elegant helmet wings and valances. First owner was Mr. Grant, proprietor of the famous 'Glenfiddich' whisky distilleries in Scotland. Charming black/white photographs show the proud owner standing next to his brandnew two-tone grey Alvis on the 1-st of January and another one with evenso happy looking family on board. I came across this Speed 25 just after the well known Alvis enthusiast Ben Lenthall finished the restoration approx. 10 years ago. The quality of this nut and bolt restoration was proven not only by the very well documented restoration file involving all the right specialists in England, but most of all by a 100% troublefree and very comfortable 10 hour run from the South of France to my home near Brussels. During these various periods of ownership I have very much enjoyed driving this Alvis Speed 25 just for fun and at many classic car events in Europe. These journeys did bring me nothing but compliments from admirers , men as well as women. I can strongly recommend the happiness this grand tourer can bring to a future owner, but I will be sad to see this great Alvis leave my garage once again!
