The text for this booklet was originally prepared by Charles Mackonachie
and extra text by Rex Harvey for an Alvis Owner Club publication entitled
’A year by year history of ALVIS with illustrations of car model types.’
Following an initiative by the Alvis Car Club of Victoria and the authority of
the authors, the original text has been retained and photographs of
‘Australian’ Alvis cars, with few exceptions, have been used in the
production of this booklet.
The AOC booklet also had photographic and other material from Dave
Culshaw and his input is also acknowledged.
This booklet will provide a quick reference resource, dating significant
events and model runs for both the beginner and the seasoned Alvis
enthusiast.
Acknowledgement is also made to the many photographers whose art is
featured in this booklet.
