1934 Alvis Speed 20 SB

Over the years we have carried out a great deal of work to this car, including an engine and gearbox rebuild, rewire and suspension overhaul.  More recently we carried out a substantial amount of work on the ash frame, followed by a bare metal respray.

1952 Alvis TC21 Graber

The owner had reversed into an object in this car so asked us to straighten the rear bumper then have it re-chromed.  In the meantime she wanted to continue to use the car so we fabricated a short-term replacement while the work was being carried out.
