An Alvis TD21 Series II Drophead Coupe motor car, 2993cc, first registered 18th July 1967 but year of manufacture believed to be 1963, one owner from new, metallic blue paintwork and with wire wheels, chassis number 26905, 73536 recorded miles, not running and 'sold as seen', currently SORN. The vehicle has been stored in a garage, but with it being 'sold as seen', viewing is essential. The TD21 was produced from 1958 until 1963; offered with either a four speed manual or three speed automatic transmission and an upgraded 2993cc engine, these prestige sporting motor cars were the pinnacle of mid-twentieth century British engineering. The Series II arrived in 1962 with four wheel disc brakes and by October of that year, a five speed manual ZF gearbox. The TD was replaced in 1963 by the TE21. The Park Ward TD21 Series II, with styling by Graber of Switzerland, is arguably the most desirable model of the Alvis TD/TE/TF range, with its integral spot and fog lamps and elegant, sophisticated styling. Two hundred and eighty-nine TD21 Series II models were produced, and of that number just fifty-three were Drophead Coupes.
