The Alvis Firefly was produced by Alvis from 1932 to 1934, so we have here the first year of this production of which a total of around 800 were built with a new value of only 495 GBP. Of which there are still about 30 left today.
The car has a four-cylinder engine with overhead valves. The engine, with a single SU carburettor and with a displacement of 1496 cm³, delivered 50 hp (37 kW) at 4500 rpm. The engine was essentially the same as the 12/50 TH model of 1927 and the 12/50 SD of 1927 to 1929. This made production cheap and the model fit into the then popular 1.5 liter class. The top speed was about 120 km/h.
Our Alvis Firefly Twelve, which was originally delivered new in England, came to Provence in the late 1960s, after which it eventually ended up in the Netherlands via Belgium with its new proud owner. This owner has completely restored the Alvis to its former glory. Fully documented with photos. With the astonishing results we see now. We rarely see this anymore. We can only say that the work was carried out very well. The car has clearly been restored to perfection and has been very well maintained since then. When we look at the condition of the chassis and bodywork, we can only say that the car is in excellent health. The bodywork looks beautiful.
The engine runs perfectly and is linked to a four-speed manual transmission. Driving a pre-war car like this is an absolute treat. You adjust the ignition, modulate the accelerator properly, steer a little to keep the car on track, it is a driving experience that a modern car simply cannot offer you. With the Alvis you will receive a wonderful report from Automobiel Voiture’s, the instruction book and the Alvis Firefly twelve book.
In short, to drive as driving is meant to be and impressive as impressive is meant to be!
