History of the Alvis 12/50
The Alvis 12/50 is a car introduced by the British Alvis cars company in 1923. It went through a series of versions with the last ones being made in 1932. A range of factory bodies could be specified in two and four-seat form with either open or closed bodies.
The first models were designated SA and SB and had a 1496 cc 4-cylinder overhead valve engine in SB. The SA usually carried two-seat bodywork often the classic so called "ducks back" style named after its pointed rear end said to resemble that of a duck. All the 12/50s had a four speed non-synchromesh gearbox.
