Vehicle Description

In the 1930s, Sydney Allard built a dozen Ford-based specials for British competitions. Some had Lincoln engines and many were fitted with a split-axle independent front suspension developed by Leslie Ballamy. During World War II, his London based garage named 'Adlards, Ltd.,' rebuilt Ford vehicles for British forces. After the War there were plenty of engines and parts available but no government contracts. So he introduced the Allard K1, a two-seater on a box-section frame with transverse leaf springing and Ballamy's IFS front axle. Power was sourced from either Ford or Mercury flathead V-8 power. The K1 Model offered power and performance; customers who were seating seating for four occupants could purchase the L-Type. GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this extremely rare 1948 Allard L-Type for your consideration. Fewer than 200 of these cars are said to have been produced and it is estimated that less than 19 are left, seven of which are in in the States. The particular example left the factory on December 2nd 1948 and was solid in Wales. The car is said to have been imported in 1994. This L-Type is finished in Burgundy and upholstered in gray leather with matching tonneau cover, top, and side curtains. It has Wilton wool carpets and a dashboard made from Indian rosewood. It has Lucas fog lights, a rear-mounted spare with cover, color-keyed steel wheels, and whitewall tires. There is a modern horn under the hood, concealed turn signals, and lap seat belts. It is in stunning condition inside and out and also features whitewall tires and rear mounted spare tire. It is powered by an 85hp 21-stud version of the Ford flathead V8 mated to a 3-speed manual floor shifter. It features split beam independent front axle and a live rear axle. It is a wonderful vehicle that turns head and will surely be the center of your collection!
