The Alvis 12/70 was introduced by Alvis cars in 1937. It was a 4 cylinder car related to the 6 cylinder Alvis Silver Crest.

Alvis designed and manufactured the 4 cylinder 1842 cc pushrod overhead valve engine [http://www.alvisoc.org/Site%20Files/Alvis%20Cars/Pre-War/12-70.htm Alvis Owner Club] ] which was similar to the engine of the Alvis Firebird but was, in fact, a new design. Alvis also designed and made the 4 speed gearbox which had synchromesh on the top 3 speeds.

Many of the other components were outsourced to other suppliers in a bid to cut costs.

A total of 741 cars was manufactured [ [http://www.redtriangle.co.uk/ Red Triangle - Welcome To The Home of Alvis Cars ] ] , and in 1945 the 12/70 was replaced by the Alvis TA 14 but much of the 12/70 lived on in this post war model.
