1936 ALVIS 12/50, Alvis made cars from 1920 until 1967. They were relatively expensive when new, competing in the upper end of the market, and were not produced in large numbers, thus they are very exclusive. Performance, appearance and finish are all well above the levels found in run of the mill cars. While other makes are better known and more instantly recognized, there is an air of quiet good breeding about an Alvis which expresses its owner's taste. Before WW2, Alvises were extensively and successfully raced, and competitive appearances continued through the fifties, culminating in the marque's popularity in historic competition today. All Alvis cars are now desirable classics, with an enthusiastic following. Alvises were not mass produced, rather they were built in batches, with a wide range of models sharing identical mechanical parts.
