1948-49 Alvis TA-14 Serial Numbers

Postby alsfarms » Mon Jan 28, 2013 1:15 am

I have learned a bit more about serial and frame numbers. Do any of you have access to the factory information pertaining to the frame/serial number split between a 1948 and 1949 TA-14?

The TA14/TB14 Register published by the AOC in 1996 gives details of this stuff, ie Chassis no.,Body type,Coachbuilder,Body no.,Reg no (UK) &Despatch date.
If you post your chassis no., with luck I should be able to give you some or all of the above details.

Hello Peter,
Thanks for taking the time to respond to my question on TA-14 numbers. When I get home this afternoon, I will post the frame number from both of my TA-14's. The DHC is the car I am building, the second is a donor Muliner sedan. I am anxious to learn what I can about both vehicles. I think the Muliner came to the US from Portugal. The DHC has been in the US for a long time, per past owner. Thanks again for your response.
Al

Hello Peter,
I was able to catch some daylight and see well enough to write down the frame numbers from both of my TA-14's. The Mulliner Sedan is #20880 and my Carbodies DHC is 22369. I hope you may be able to assist me with determining some history and pedigree for my cars.
Regards,
Alan
