STORY

The Alvis TD 21 Drophead Coupe was a stylish convertible version of the Alvis TD 21 produced in the early 1960s. The TD 21 series was part of Alvis' efforts to focus on the luxury car market and was produced from 1958 to 1963. The Drophead Coupe was a special variant of this model and was characterized by its open, stylish bodywork.

The body of the TD 21 Drophead Coupe was designed by renowned coachbuilder Park Ward, giving the vehicle a timeless elegance with clean lines and refined details. The Drophead Coupe's signature feature was the electrically operated soft top, which allowed the occupants to open or close the roof as required.

Under the bonnet of the TD 21 Drophead Coupe was Alvis' proven 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine. This engine, fitted with twin SU carburettors, gave the car impressive performance and provided a pleasant driving experience.

Inside, the Drophead Coupe offered luxurious comfort with high-quality materials, fine wood trim and leather upholstery. The interior design reflected Alvis' focus on luxury and quality.

Production of the Alvis TD 21 and its Drophead Coupe ended in 1963 when the Alvis brand finally stopped making cars. Today, well-preserved examples of the TD 21 Drophead Coupe are highly sought after by collectors and classic car enthusiasts. These vehicles represent the elegance and style of the British luxury car industry of the 1960s.
