|The Alvis Owner Club caters for all Alvis car and military vehicle owners and enthusiasts. It is a very active club, running a variety of social and gently competitive events all over the UK, and some overseas. Members are to be found around the world and this web site is one of the ways they keep in touch with the Club. Information on the site is necessarily restricted, and the author apologises for any omissions or inaccuracies, which are his responsibility alone. He hopes you enjoy your visit and are left in no doubt of the heroic scale of the contribution of the small firm of Alvis to Britain's motoring heritage. The site was written and compiled by Robin Gilbert, with help and encouragement from Edgar Shields, Arthur Fairburn and others.|

|Marles-Weller Steering Shafts||Marles Weller steering boxes were fitted to many Alvis
models in the 1930s. There have been problems with cracked steering
shafts on these boxes and at least one has broken, leaving the
driver with no steering. There are known design and manufacturing
faults in these boxes and new shafts were produced which overcome
them. These shafts are now sold out, but it is known that more cars
survive than new shafts were sold. Consequently it is proposed to
manufacture a further batch. Click HERE
for details, including which cars are affected..
