Description

An especially fine 1933 Alvis 12/70 Open Tourer Special on offer. Bought in 1990 by no one other than the famous historian and car journalist, Jacques Potherat. At the time of purchase the car underwent a fully new rebuild. The French Ruphil Garage based Rucheton brothers designed the body. The elegant bodywork has perfectly streamlined proportions. The Special is based on a 12/70 chassis and has a 12/70 1842 cc, twin carburettor, engine. Naturally all remedial works have been documented, including various photos. In 1993, ‘Auto Retro’ magazine featured a spread on this particular Alvis over a number of pages. Mechanically the car is in good working order. The patina characterizing this car today is fantastic and inimitable! This unique car with its unique provenance is undisputedly quite the ticket for many historic events!
