1961 Alvis TD21

Journeys End – Making their appointment with the 1961 Alvis TD21

After the overnight rebuild on the starter motor of their gorgeous 1961 Alvis TD21, Mr and Mrs Bradnum were able to make their appointment at Brize Fest 2021.

As you may know, it was Mr and Mrs Bradnum who had coordinated the display of Alvis’ cars built between 1935 and 1962 so their attendance was crucial at the event. Thankfully they made it to their destination safe and sound, and on their return home set us over some incredible photos of the TD21 in front of a rather impressive C17 Globemaster (just returned from Afghanistan) and its siblings.

We here at Bridge Classic Cars would like to wish the Bradnum’s many happy miles of motoring to come and thank them for their kind words.

Alvis Has Left The Building

Just as soon as this 1961 Alvis TD21 was starting to settle in, it’s already leaving us. An unexpected arrival, this vehicle broke down on Thursday and was fighting fit again by Friday. The vehicle’s owners are on a long road trip from wales by way of Suffolk to a car show they are hosting in Oxford. It was crucial they were back on the road for the weekend.

After diagnosing the issue as a faulty starter motor, Paul set about removing the starter motor solenoids and replacing them with new ones. We had the starter motor repaired overnight and Paul re-fitted the unit Friday morning. With great work from the Bridge Classic Cars team, this beautiful classic made it to the ball.

Bridge Classic Cars to the rescue!

Yesterday we had an unexpected new arrival in the form of a blue 1961 Alvis TD21. Unfortunately, this classic had broken down and was on its way to a show which the owners are hosting. They’d traveled down from Wales and had attended a wedding on their trip in the area. On their way across to Oxford, the Alvis stopped working.

This gorgeous classic ended up being brought to us for our technicians to look at. It was found that the starter motor wasn’t working, so it was swiftly sent off last night to be repaired. We’re now just waiting for its return. Well done so far to the technicians for being so quick with diagnosing the issue. Let’s hope we can get it to Oxford in time!
