Alvis Solamander in Manitoba

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have seen that there has been some chatter about the 1958 Alvis we acquired some years ago when we purchased some property in Manitoba, Canada.  No it is NOT rotting in a shed, No we have not sent it to the wrecker, We still have it along with all parts, including motor. So please don't assume all was disposed of. 

The reason I stopped discussing said vehicle is I felt I was to feel a certain way about the machine, I came on here to get information about it etc not to be judged. Not all people have attachments to things they acquire by purchasing property

 

I was wanting a Canadian value to advertise the vehicle including the maintenance manual to sell it .

 

Regards,

Hi Leah,

 

I'm sorry I can't help you in your quest for information and guide to pricing.  However I do wish you luck in your endeavour.

Best regards,

Julian

Leah,

 

I was one of those who commented on the vehicle, my apologies if I offended you at all.

The value of the vehicle is one of those really hard things to determine. They are not easy to work on at all, I have been involved in a few of that family of vehicle now.

If yours is ex RCAF then it is unique as to my knowledge it is the only surviving example in Canada. That does not mean anyone is going to pay money for it.

I have a friend in BC who might be interested as he has a number of that family of vehicles and has the space and the time for bigger projects.

I am glad to hear that it is still around and has not been scrapped.

If I can be of any help please contact me. Although in Ontario myself I am not that far away really.

Hi all.

This beauty of a beast is now in my care and I am currently tasked with reviving him.  I have dubbed him Big Al.

He is going to be featured in a new TV series that will soon be filming here in Manitoba.

Any information on the ignition system would be greatly appreciated as it's like nothing I've seen  before. Any information on anything would be helpful for that matter.

I am anxious to get him running and go for a drive.  My boss wants that to happen in the next few days.

I'm hoping that when filming wraps that I will be able to buy him and give him a good home.

Thanks in advance, Dean.
