Following the end of World War 2 Alvis remerged with a range of cars, based on their pre war chassis. As with many manufacturers there was no time or money to develop new products, therefore the TA14 was really a freshened up pre war 12/70 introduced in 1938.
Alvis had always sold well built cars with sporting pretensions, but the TA14 offered little in terms of real performance with the 4 cylinder engine and heavy coachwork.
Our Alvis 3 Litre Special, is fitted with a 3 litre Alvis six cylinder engine from the immediate post war TC mated to a TD cylinder head and fitted with 3 SU carburettors and straight through exhaust system.
The bodywork is all aluminium and built on a tubular frame, the design of the coachwork has been taken from racing specials of famous European Marques of the mid 1930's
The power to weight ratio makes this a fast, sure footed special, for rally use.
