Alvis Silver Eagle Special, 1934 - PROJECT
This gorgeous 1934 Alvis Silver Eagle was fully restored / built new by Altena Classic Service. The old Alvis bodywork proved to be beyond repair, so the owner decided to have a brand-new special two-seater sports body made. The body shape was drawn-up and the bodywork was hand crafted and beaten from aluminium sheet, just like it was done in the old days, and the panels were fitted to a specially made ash frame. The chassis was stripped and restored. The suspension fully overhauled, and new drum brakes were made incorporating air-scoops and finned drums. A more powerful 3.5 Litre engine was sourced and overhauled. Many other parts were specially made for this car, like the lamp brackets, gearbox shifter linkage, dashboard, seats etcetera. After all the parts were present and ready the car was fully built-up to check everything for a perfect fit. After that the car was stripped again and all the parts were given their final finish. Body parts, chassis and suspension parts were painted, and other parts were nickel plated, chrome plated, or zinc plated. Study the extensive photo report and admire all the wonderful details on this unique Alvis Silver Eagle Special.
