Alvis Silver Eagle Special, 1934 - PROJECT
This gorgeous 1934 Alvis Silver Eagle project is in the works at Altena Classic Service. The old 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. The car is currently being build up to see if everything fits properly. Shortly the automobile will be stripped again to be given it’s new paint.
To be continued.
