ALVIS 12/75 FA/FB/FD/FE

2-seater sports, 4-seater sports, sports saloon.

Ingenious and complicated fwd creation with all-independent, transverse-leaf springing, inboard front brakes, and engine (bottom end has 12/50 affinities) behind its four-speed 'box. Magneto ignition, and right-hand floor change. Chassis prefixes indicate short/long and blown/unblown variants. Supercharged versions good for 85mph, but tricky to handle, and there's no parts supply.
