Classic Car Restorations
1936 Alvis Speed 20 Lancefield Saloon
Now we start putting it back together!
We've now run the car for some months, and the mechanics all seem fine.
The body frame has been replaced or strengthened in places.
As you can see the body is now completely stripped and ready for painting - if only we could find a painter!
The seats have been retrimmed, and the sunroof area has been trimmed out and re fitted.
The colour will be dark blue, maybe with a grey, if deciding on a two tone scheme. The leather and interior will be light grey.
First offering up of the wings, and off for painting...
Back from painting, I decided to go with a dark midnight blue as oppossed to the two tone option I had originally planned.
Just back from the painters, Mudguards and running board strips, now firmly fixed. Bonnet and door catches and front lights fitted, Work on the engine and carburetors
The finished result
