1939 Alvis Speed 25 SC Charlesworth sa­loon pro­ject

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

Bought by the ven­dor’s father in 1962 for £1000, this po­ten­tially lovely Alvis pro­ject is def­i­nitely not one for the faint-hearted. It was used through­out the 1960s and taken off the road for an en­gine re­build in 1970. The en­gine was stripped and re­bored, with var­i­ous com­po­nents white-met­alled. Those parts were later stored and form part of the pro­ject. The body does need plenty of restora­tion, says Brightwells, par­tic­u­larly the A- and B-posts, but some work has been car­ried out to the doors. An in­ter­est­ing and clearly de­mand­ing pro­ject, but one with po­ten­tially su­perb re­sults.
