Alvis - Alvis Silver Eagle

For 1927, alongside the 4 cylinder 12/50, Alvis had developed a 6 cylinder engine of 63mm x 100mm with 1870cc capacity which Alvis used in a model called the 14/75, and this car which was eventually developed into what became the Silver Eagle in 1930, namely the Silver Eagle SD (1991cc) and the Silver Eagle SA (2148cc). For 1934 the Silver Eagle was reworked with a new all synchromesh gearbox, and cross bracing to the chassis frame. There was an increased engine capacity for the Silver Eagle in 1935 to 2362cc with the Alvis Silver Eagle SG. 1936 was the last year of this model.

Tyres for the Alvis Silver Eagle were quoted 5.25x20 and 500x20 in period. The high quality Blockley "475/500x20" tyre made by Blockley at the request of Alvis owners is what we would recommend - see full details of this tyre below:
