ALVIS 4.3-LITRE SHORT

Sports tourer.

Magnificent Vanden Plas creation on a shortened, 124ins chassis with flared wings, no running boards and sloping tail. Weight's a little over 32cwt, hence on the high 3.82:1 axle ratio performance not particularly exciting, though one specially prepared car was timed at 115mph at Brooklands.
