1930 Alvis Silver Eagle 16.95 SA Tourer
This fine Silver Eagle was supplied to its first owner in June 1930, as an 'Atlantic' saloon. It was to remain in the original ownership for many years, before being passed down to the owner’s son. However, the son never used the car, putting it into storage in a timber garage. Years later, the building collapsed on top of the car and was set on fire by vandals. The outcome was that all coachwork behind the scuttle was destroyed.
The car was to pass to a new owner in 1984, who spent the next three years totally restoring it to the highest standard, with replica Cross & Ellis tourer coachwork by Phil Kneller. The car remains in first class order in all respects and is a delight to drive.
A rear Auster Screen is fitted, which ensures rear passengers have a relatively draught-free ride and a full tonneau cover is supplied, along with a hood bag and luggage trunk.
The car is well equipped for touring and has twin spare wheels, pillar mounted spotlamp and a pair of long range lamps. It has been used for a number of long distance runs during the last year, including a trip to the Pyrenees last Summer.
Maintained meticulously, this superb Alvis is ready to go anywhere, being capable of cruising comfortably at 60-plus mph.
Much documentation is supplied, including a comprehensive photographic history of the restoration along with numerous receipts etc.
