1960 Loyd Alexander Ts Engine

Lloyds are not very well know around here but at one time they were third behind Volkswagen and Opel in Germany. They produced small inexpensive cars and this example is no different. This car features a tiny 596cc two cylinder four stroke engine. It produce 25 horsepower and is good for up to 66mph.

Although simple, the interior of this Lloyd looks clean and usable. The whole car appears to be in good condition and with a little cleaning and maintenance would make a nice driver.

We would not recommend buying a new micro car, but we think this vintage one would be fun because of its charm. It may even handle well considering how lightweight it is. Either way we are sure it will get some looks going down the road. Just look at how much fun these people are having in this picture taken from an original Lloyd brochure. With such a small engine, it makes you wonder if they actually made it up that hill…

    I owned a 1961 Alexander TS for more than three years in the early 60′s. It did better than 45 mpg and cruised happily at 65+mph. The handling was superb, and driving over snowed up mountain roads would leave much more powerful cars behind. It was easy to work on, cheap to run and was surprisingly comfortable and robust. I’d love to get my hands on another TS, though I think there can be very very few in the UK now – they were scarce back in the 6os. Grand to see photos – and a utube video of one started up made me quite nostalgic – my friends used to refer to my TS as a sewing machine and after all this time I can hear that they were spot on:-)
