This is a 1953 Alvis TA21 drop head coupe. Steve the owner has recently finished a two year restoration of this car which has been completed to a very high standard.
To hire this Alvis for a weekend Summer wedding the cost for the day is just £450 dropping to £350 for a week day wedding in the winter.
The car came to Steve in a very sorry state as several previous owners had begun to restore the car but had never completed it. The restoration began in the late 1980s when the car was stripped down and work was completed on the chassis and running gear. It was then left in hundreds of boxes in different garages and barns for nearly 25 years until Steve took ownership in 2015. The car was lovingly restored with no expense spared on either the paint, interior or the running gear and what you now see is possibly one of the if not the best Tickford bodied TA21’s in the country.
With the suicide front doors and the design of the folding front seats getting in and out of the back of the Coupe is easier than the saloon especially with the roof down. The leg room in the back is no different to the saloon so loads of room for even the biggest of dresses.
