Although it has been shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic, Britain’s Alvis is offering free technical support to car owners who are working on their vehicles.
“With classic car workshops closed and owners keen to have cars ready for when restrictions lift, Alvis’ parts division Red Triangle, is offering its customers, free technical support to them to undertake jobs at home during the restrictions,” the company announced.
Although its own workshops also are closed, “Red Triangle is still able to ship genuine parts to owners around the world and sought ways it could help them to do work themselves and avoid missing time to enjoy their car at the appropriate time in the future.”
To help those owners, adds Alvis director Alan Stote, “We have assigned one of our experienced factory technicians, who has access to drawings, factory service manuals and parts catalogues, to respond to customer queries for pre and post war cars.”
“We hope that this scheme might give owners the confidence to tackle new jobs and sometimes just knowing somebody is there to ask, is all that’s needed,” Stote added.
Although Alvis ended series production in 1968, it announced in 2019 that it would tool up to offer continuation vehicles.
