wow

The car is a heavy 1950 Alvis TB 14 drophead cruiser…

It’s based on TA14 sedan underpinnings, fitted with an 1892cc four cylinder engine fitted with twin-SU’s- about 68bhp and good for 80mph.

Its not of any interest to you racing lot, but I like the 1953 shot by Inge Morath, a noted photographer of the time. Click here for her interesting obituary;
