Chassis No: 27262
Motor Car Location: Belgium
One of just eighteen automatic transmission TE21 Drophead Coupes known to have survived (from twenty-two made), chassis 27262 was initially finished in Metallic Beige with Beige leather upholstery; the same livery it sports today. Supplied new by W.J. Skelly Ltd to T.T. Young & Co Ltd of Edinburgh, the Alvis later belonged to local architect William Kininmonth and John Reynolds of Berkshire before migrating to New Zealand and the care of Hamish Linton. The latter is pictured driving the four-seater around a racetrack in Kenneth Day's authoritative tome 'Alvis, The Story of the Red Triangle'. '27262' also appears in 'The Complete Encyclopaedia of Sports Cars' by Rob de la Rive Box. Repatriated via marque specialist Red Triangle in 1990, they continued to maintain it (alongside others) for Tim Roberts between then and 2007. Entering the previous ownership that same year, the TE21 DHC was subsequently treated to a new hood bag, refurbished interior, electronic ignition, overhauled carburettors, replacement sills, rejuvenated rear springs, halogen headlights and rolling road tuning. Equipped with power steering, '27262' won its class at the 2011 Petwood Concours d'Elegance.
