Alvis TD21 DHC 1960 Historics

A similar example of this 1960 Alvis TD21 Drop Head Coupe was voted “favourite car” against some very still opposition at the Britwell Salome classic car charity run last Sunday. This TD21 automatic has been owned since 2009 by the vendor who has enjoyed it immensely and had the brakes overhauled by Red Triangle 500 miles ago. Considering the fact that a similar car sold for £150,000 in Historics Ascot sale last year, this one is very conservatively estimated at £54,000 t0 £62,000.
