The ACCV was founded in 1954 and caters

Some Alvis History
Alvis produced cars from 1922 until 1967.
The pre1940 cars were essentially sporting in nature whilst the
later cars tended to compete with Bentley in the luxury market.
Alvis did not have its own in house coachbuilder, but used the
services of many coachbuilding companies including Cross and Ellis,
Charlesworth, Holbrook, Graber and many others.
The Alvis Car Club (Victoria) is dedicated
to the use and preservation of Alvis Cars and membership is open
to anyone interested in the Alvis marque. The club also maintains
close ties with the NSW Alvis Car Club and International Alvis
clubs and owners.
The Club has its roots in 1953, when it
formed a branch of the NSW Club. Bob Morrow placed an advertisement
in "The Age" asking anyone interested in Alvis Cars
to contact him. It was soon found that Victoria could support
a Club of its own and the ACCV was formed in 1954 with 26 people
considered to be founding members. More of the clubs history
can be found here
The club holds a number of day
and weekend events during the year and trophy's are awarded to
members for using and restoring their cars. In addition the club
has held a number of major rally's over the years including trips
to Tasmania and the recent 4 week tour of Victoria organised for
International Alvis owners. Together with the NSW club and members
in other states, an Alvis National
Tour is held approximately every 2 years. Generally
these rotate around the Eastern States of Australia and are organised
by the Alvis enthusiasts in the host state. These rally's attract
entrants from all across Australia and regular visitors from New
Zealand, UK and America. The majority of members drive to and
from the event which generally will mean a 3-4,000km round trip

of cars, the majority of them imported when new, however a number
of cars have also been imported by enthusiastic owners. The cars

cars are continually being added or updated (See photo gallery).
