This is what, apart from myself, many other prewar car enthusiasts agree on. Knowing that only 12 Short Chassis 4.3 Vanden Plas tourers were constructed, imagine how proud I am to be able to represent this very rare Alvis on the classic car market. (In my 25 years of classic car dealing and wheeling the 3-rd genuine 4.3 short chassis VdP Tourer which passes through my hands!) After a top-score in quality and rarity, I am sure you will agree with me that this Alvis model also deserves a top-score in beauty. Chassis n° 14846 is registered on the original Alvis factory Card Record as being a genuine Vanden Plas SHORT/WB Tourer and was sold new to Angus Marsh Scott from Dundee in Scotland. In the 60-ies and 70-ies this VdP Tourer resides with several successive owners in Norway. During the 80-ies in the USA. In August 1990, it was bought at auction by Bob Meijer from Amsterdam.
