"Jolly Stolly"

I always wanted an Alvis Stalwart - specifically,  after seeing one at an Army display at Goodwood in the early 70’s.   The futuristic looking design and apparently unstoppable off-road capabilities kept it in my mental list of ‘top-ten machines’.  Alas, the thirst for petrol, the cost of spares and the lack of suitability for paved roads meant that owning one has always been beyond my pocket, though I have acquired several manuals and other bits and pieces over the years.

So, when our children were young, I built a battery-powered version for them.

Two-wheel drive but four-wheel steering.

Video cameras weren’t as good then as they are now.
