Registration No: PLN 31E
Chassis No: 27396
Mot Expiry: July 2007

Production car swansong of the Alvis marque, the TF21 was introduced in March 1966. Based around a rigid box-section chassis featuring independent coil and wishbone front suspension, a leaf-sprung back axle, four-wheel disc brakes and power steering, the newcomer shared the same elegant two-door styling as its TE21 predecessor. Upgraded with a raised compression ratio, water-heated inlet manifold, triple SU carburettors and thermostatically-controlled electric fan, its 2993cc OHV straight-six engine was quoted as developing some 150bhp and 182lbft of torque. Available with a choice of either ZF five-speed manual or Borg Warner three-speed automatic transmission, the model was reputedly capable of 120mph. Trimmed in Connolly leather its four-seat interior also sported a wooden dashboard complete with revised, more driver-orientated instrument binnacle. Among the rarest and most desirable of the Alvis 3-Litre cars, the TF21 only lasted in production until 1967 by which time just 105 are thought to have been made.
Finished in silver with grey leather upholstery, this particular right-hand drive example is described by the vendor as being in "good" condition with regard to its 2993cc engine, three-speed automatic transmission, chassis and paintwork. Reportedly "purchased from America in January 2005", 'PLN 31E' is believed but not warranted to have covered 48,270 miles from new. A handsome coachbuilt sports saloon, this rare Alvis is offered for sale with MOT certificate valid until July 23rd 2007 and historic class (free) road tax until July 2007.
