Alvis 4.3 Litre Charlesworth Saloon (1937)

The Alvis 4.3 Charlesworth was one of the few 1930’s sports saloons truly capable of reaching ‘the ton’. They were rare even then (with only 70 made) and this one has aged gracefully over the last 77 years into a wonderfully mature icon of the period.

It has Chassis No. 14357, Engine No. 14790 and was supplied to Turner and Hore Ltd of Newmarket in 1937 according to the supply sheet. Its history from then until the late 1980’s is not known but in 1992 it came into the possession of a well know member of the Scottish Alvis Owners Club. Over the next 20 years he had the car extensively refurbished including an engine rebuild and used it for Alvis and other events until recently. The odometer reads 33k miles (133k ?) of which only about 13k have been covered in the last 20 years.
The engine and gearbox are excellent and the car is surprisingly easy to drive. The chassis is substantial and sound. The interior is comfortable with well worn blue leather and polished wood. The bodywork and chrome are good but not perfect. It has an operating twin sunshine roof.
It comes with MoT’s from 1992, a copy of the repair book, some tools and over £12k of receipts for engine and other work done over the years. One of the partners of A1CC has known this car for many years and we are keen to ensure that it finds an appreciative new owner.
