This beautiful Alvis TC 108/G is one of the rare models with the Graber-Willowbrook body made by the Loughborough based Willowbrook. Alvis gave Willowbrook the licence to make the Swiss Graber bodies. It soon transpired that these hand-beaten panels by Willowbrook were far to expensive and therefore affected sales. The price of these cars was higher than the Aston Martin DB2/4. In total only 37 examples were made. Of the 37, 21 went over to Switzerland for a Graber body. Willowbrook finished the other 16 for the English market. Our car is the rare Willowbrook number 12. Rumour has it that only four cars are still around worldwide. In 1956 Mr Simmons, then director of Red-Triangle and well known Alvis specialist and Monte-Carlo racing driver acquired the car. It took until 1992 before the Alvis changed hands. This time it fell into the hands of a Dutch enthusiast. He commissioned a complete overhaul and restoration. One can still easily appreciate the high quality of the splendid restoration today! In 1994 it was ready to be enjoyed. After 10 years of pure motoring pleasure it was sold on to a friend, who went on to enjoy the car for another 15 years. Throughout its life this Alvis has been treated with the care and attention it deserves. It is little wonder that this Alvis still remains in a superb condition. The bodywork, the straight panels and all chrome parts are all in a particularly fine state . The interior trim is very neat with a lovely patina. This Alvis has power steering, hidden stereo, electric sunroof, special cylinder head, aircon, rear height adjustment and a ZF 5-speed gearbox. This Alvis has no trouble at all in keeping up with the traffic; it is such a joy to drive! This is a true unique English Gentleman's' sport Coupe, one of only a handful known to have survived!
