The Alvis Three Litre TD21 was launched in 1958 with sports saloon or drop­head coupé bod­ies pro­duced by Park Ward. It was a re­vised ver­sion of the Wil­low­brook-built TC108G (G for Graber, the Swiss de­signer).

From 1959 all-drum brakes changed to front discs and rear drums. Over­drive avail­able on four-speed man­ual be­tween late 1960 and 1962.

April 1962 saw the in­tro­duc­tion of four-wheel Dun­lop disc brakes for the Se­ries II. Front foglamps re­cessed into front panel within the circular air in­takes for car­bu­ret­tors and heater. Re­vised rear num­ber­plate sur­round.

Oc­to­ber 1962 her­alded a switch to a fivespeed man­ual ZF gear­box, with the Borg­warner au­to­matic still an op­tion.

TD21 was re­placed by the TE21 in 1963 with twin stacked head­lamps. TF21 fol­lowed in 1966 with triple carbs and 150bhp.
