Alvis TA 21, TC 21
In 1950 the TA14 was superseded by the TA21, with the body modestly refreshened front and rear. Biggest change was the new 2993cc 6-cylinder ohv engine, and independent front suspension. Mulliner provided the coachwork on the most common TA 21 saloon, and Tickford built the Drophead Coupe, whilst a few went to coachbuilders such as Graber. The TA 21 was revised and in 1953 became the TC21 with more power and modernised bodies. A special performance version was called the TC21/100 because it boasted 100bhp and could top 100mph. These were also nick-named 'Grey Lady' because that was the colour of the 1953 Earls Court Show car.
