The Home of Alvis CarsPLAY FULL VIDEO
Founded by the ex-employees, with the help and support of the Alvis Company, Red Triangle started business in June 1968 providing parts and service for the cars in everyday use at that time. The Alvis Company passed everything to Red Triangle – the complete stock of ALVIS PARTS, all 22,000 Car Records, one for every car Alvis produced and over 14,000 works drawings, correspondence files and data sheets – in fact everything to do with Alvis cars from 1920 to 1967.

"I thought you would like to know that I have completed nearly 400 miles in the car over the last few days and it has been a joy to behold and drive and has performed faultlessly throughout. We went to the South west Alvis day near Tiverton on Sunday where the car was much admired and won a cup for best car from Cornwall, much to our surprise as we had not entered !! Since my initial drive a couple of weeks ago, much seems to have been done to improve the steering and now the interior is fitted , the car seems surprisingly quiet and easy to drive. My wife Moyra has even driven the car and finds no difficulty in doing so and she is full of praise for our new carriage"

" We've had plenty of use now with the 12/50 plus overdrive including 1,500m to France. The overdrive ratio is excellent; 18% coupled with the 4.5 diff means we have all the benefit of the '5th' gear but there is still plenty left for overtaking or long inclines without dropping to top. So thank you and thank you for tackling all the under floor and behind dash fiddlings you obviously had to contend with "
