Axle ratio geared up with new 3.7:1 crown wheel and pinion - improving every day rally performance no end
Cruises at 80mph with no problem, 100 estimated tops
Servo assisted and vented Drum brakes very effective
Synchro Speed 25 gearbox on all gears
This car is now well sorted and bedded in having just had some long distance tours and rallies under her belt, most recently 1400 mile trip this June into the western United States and up through the interior of British Columbia. A very comfortable, fast Pre war car… and the owner states that it is ”My Wife’s favourite of all the cars we have” - but it has to make way for an even more exciting project !

Originally delivered to Galt Ltd in Glasgow, this early Speed 25 was dispatched on 31st October 1936 and registered in 1937, the first full year of production. At one point owned by a Mr C.V Sharp of Lymington, Hants, he subsequently sold it to a Mr K.A. Wilson of Toronto Canada in October 1969. Mr Wilson owned the car until Sept 1999 and then sold it to the previous owner in Langley British Columbia in October 1999. He sold this car to the present owner in the Spring of 2014
Pebble Beach winners RX Autoworx then embarked on this glorious project you see here today
Fast and reliable, the Alvis Speed 25 was announced in 1937 with the 3571cc straight six engine which produced 106bhp at a lowly 3800 rpm. Sporty and low slung, the Speed 25 had independent front suspension and servo-assisted brakes – very much with the times immediately prior to WWII. The cross braced chassis ensured a totally robust construction.
Confirmed long term collector with a vision for creating some lovely cars is now making way for a new project, hence this much lighter weight fast and comfortable long distance rally car is now offered for sale
