John Fox’s new vol­ume takes up the story of Alvis’ mo­tor en­gi­neer­ing in the post-war years. A chap­ter on what might have been ploughs some fer­tile ground, while the pages de­voted to restora­tion and preser­va­tion takes up the story of some well known ex­am­ples from the 1950s through to the present day. Where this book scores over ear­lier pub­li­ca­tions is the lib­eral use of ar­chive im­ages and colour pho­tog­ra­phy high­light­ing con­tem­po­rary cars. We were par­tic­u­larly im­pressed by a pho­to­graph show­ing an Alvis ice cream van with coach­work by W Wright & Son and we won­der what price a cor­net would be from such a so­phis­ti­cated ve­hi­cle.
