1966 Alvis TF21 Saloon The Alvis Motor Company showcased their latest and best model the TF21 at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1966. The TF21 featured a more powerful 3 litre, straight six engine thanks to the addition of triple SU carburettors, giving it a top speed of 120mph. The aluminium bodied luxury saloon also had uprated suspension, all round servo disk brakes and power steering. Just one year later, after nearly 40 years in business and having produced just 86 TF21 saloons, Alvis finally closed its doors. After many years of searching in an every decreasing market I finally found my dream car, and now after just 3 years I am forced to sell due to imminent downsizing. We have spent the last 3 years fine-tuning the cars reliability. We have had (all specialist installed) new stainless steel fuel tank and fuel system, new ignition system (including programmable electronic ignition, coil, HT leads, battery, etc.), with the engine and carburettors tuned accordingly. The car has excellent oil pressure, starts first time – every time – and runs like a dream. From the paperwork with the car, there had clearly been a lot of work carried out including; front suspension rebuild, new gearbox mountings and a brake overhaul to keep the running gear in good order. The car have covered less than 12,000 miles since the last engine rebuild. This TF21 is finished in pewter and has chromed wheels, which just adds that edge (and easier to keep clean). However, with the mechanical work done, there is still a lot of cosmetic work on my list to get it to concourse condition. Some of the chrome work would benefit from re-chroming and there are areas of the body work that should be treated and refinished. The car is original with all matching numbers, and in addition to all the usual high-end TF21 features, this has a rock-solid Borg Warner Automatic Gearbox, with its unique variable hold control. Highly recommended for everyday use.
