That Birkin Alvis




I was interested to see your reference to my Alvis SA Speed 20. I have owned the car for six years, after finding it in a field near Plymouth. The car when found was 95% complete, but was completely stripped down and re-built by Grooms Garage of Towcester. The car was in the ownership of a member of the Alvis Owner Club in the ’50s and it was always a pity that some cars can be lost trace of after being in well known circles. Incidentally, I wonder whether you have any personal recollection of the car, which was first owned by Sir Ronald Gunter.
