Delivery New: chassis to C. Follett Ltd
Coachwork: Vanden Plas 2 Door
Registration: AJJ 588
As often occurred with clients contemplating the design of their new Alvis, ‘AJJ 588’ was delivered by the Factory as a chassis to Messrs Charles Follett Ltd, the London Alvis dealer. A two door Saloon design by Vanden Plas was chosen by the first owner, which the car retained until the early nineteen seventies when rebodied as a Vanden Plas style tourer.
The car featured in the book ‘Vanden Plas Coachbuilders’ (page 129) and subsequently became owned by Kenneth R. Day Esq who authored the seminal tome on Alvis cars, ‘Alvis; the story of the Red Triangle’. It also featured regularly in the Alvis Owners Club ‘Bulletin’ over a period of four decades.
The earliest recorded competition entry in the History file was the Kentish Rally in 1954 when driven by Kenneth Day, and the last was the Brooklands Speed Trials in October 1999. The car competed regularly in the nineties’, the History file replete with scrutineering tags, programmes and results of VSCC events at Wiscombe, Colerne, Prescott, Brooklands and also the Brighton Speed Trials, all of which the car qualified for as holder of a VSCC Competition Car Log Book (the ‘Buff’ book).
The History file is extensive and carefully collated, including important original documents such as the Factory ‘Car Record’ and ‘Archive’, and a ‘New Registration Book’ issued in April 1954. The extensive service and maintenance section of the History file begins in 1974 with a purchase from ‘South London Pistons Ltd’, and ends in June 2023 with the water pump and starter motor being overhauled by the inevitable and excellent ‘Red Triangle’.
Alvis owners are notoriously serious about servicing and maintenance and hence the car is accompanied by:
- The Factory lubrication chart
- Description of the petrol ‘Telegage’
- Lucas Technical Service manual
- Factory ‘Handbook of Instructions’
- Repair Manual
- Alvis Owners Club articles
Offered with hood, tonneau, hood cover, original starting handle and a new set of Blockley tyres.
