Colour light Aubergine metallic. Grey leather interior and grey carpet. Chassis number: 14315. This fabulous Alvis 4.3 Litre short chassis Vanden Plas Tourer model SA31/48 was new delivered in 1937 as Standard Saloon with UK registration ABT322. This unique automobile is in superb (excellent+) condition.The history of the automobile is known and documented. First owner was Mr. Harold Hall Esq. of Walkington Hall, Walkington, near Beverley. Around the year 2000 ’ABT322’ needed total restoration, the then British owner had the automobile stripped back to the bare chassis. Mechanically everything was extensively overhauled. This included the fitting of a refurbished front axle, reconditioned gearbox, re-cored radiator, rejuvenated back axle, new clutch, new wiring loom etc. Using the crankcase from another 4.3 Litre engine (number 14206) as its basis, the replacement straight-six was treated to a new cylinder block, new cylinder head, new water pump, re-metalled bearings, new pistons and refurbished carburettors. As the project progressed the owner decided to have the car rebodied. Coachbuilders Wilkinson & Son of Derby were given the honour to rebody the car using a period Vanden Plas design.Although far from universal the use of metallic paint was well established by the late 1930s. The Aubergine metallic combines beautifully with the perfect bright work and the machined dashboard. A few years ago the automobile was imported to the Netherlands.
