History of the Alvis 12/50

The Alvis 12/50 is an automobile that was launched in 1923 by the British Alvis car manufacturer. It went through several iterations, the last of which was produced in 1932. A variety of factory bodies were available in two and four-seat configurations, with open or closed bodies. The initial versions were named SA and SB, with the SB using a 1496 cc 4-cylinder overhead valve engine. The SA was often equipped with two-seat bodywork, frequently in the traditional so-called "ducks back" form, so named because of its pointed rear end, which was believed to resemble that of a duck. The 12/50s were all equipped with a four-speed non-synchromesh transmission.
