The Alvechurch, ALC, was a British cyclecar manufactured by the Alvechurch Light Car Company in Alvechurch, near Birmingham in 1911.[1] The company was owned by Dunkleys, a pram maker, who also made cars under their own name.


The car was powered by an 8 hp air-cooled Matchless V-twin air-cooled engine with belt drive. The company could not get the drive system to work properly, and only two cars were made.[2]

The car was revived briefly in 1913 only as the ALC but was no more successful.[1]
