Alexander Catalogue Dated 1972 - 73.


By the early 1970's Alexander were no longer the power in tuning that they had been over the previous 15 years or so. By 1968 they had finished offering modified performance cylinder heads and they continued their "re alignment" over the next few years.


By the time this catalogue was published in 1972 there is little evidence of their once great tuning prowess, they are still offering their Alexpress bolt on kits and an impressive range of Alexander branded Smiths instruments, but sadly the majority of the rest of the contents fall into the tat category.


Amazingly it was during this period that Alexander made most money!


Alexander / Springalex Catalogue 1972.


Originally published as part of the above Alexander catalogue I thought that this Sprinaglex wheels catalogue deserved separating for the purposes of this site.


In the late 1960's the legendary steering wheel manufacturer Springall were in serious decline, for too long they had concentrated on quality over profitability until the demise of the company became inevitable. The business was sold to Alexander Engineering becoming Springalex (a compound word made up of Spring from Springall & Alex from Alexander Engineering).


The new company's wheels could never be described as beautiful, but they were strong & functional, finding favour with the Works Escorts of the early 1970's.
