TD is single headlamps, TE is twin headlamps, so a positive result.
Velocette KSS?
Could also be a TF - I think they looked the same as the TE (I know someone with a very nice TF)
Just spoke to my Alvis expert (my Dad - he had "a few" back in the day) - it's a TE. TFs had spotlamps inboard of the headlamps, apparently..

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Hmmm, interesting, I've just dug out a photo of the TF owned by a friend of mine, and yes, it does have spotlights:

However I noticed that Tim's TF has an earlier registration than the South Cerney car? So I did what I should have done in the beginning, had I had time, and looked on DVLA, and as far as they are concerned, they are both TFs - Maybe Alvis bought Reliant's build management system!
