English cars hopped up by american hot rodders. 1952 Allard, these things dominated american racing of their time.
Up for your consideration, is one of the most authentic, unmolested Allard K2 Roadsters that exists.
This car has been in my small town of Verona Wisconsin, with just 2 prior owners for the last 50+ years.
It still has it’s dealer installed Cadillac V-8 engine with 40,000 original miles.
It starts up immediately, and travels in excess of 100 mph.
Mechanically it needs nothing.
This past Fall all four fenders were removed and re-painted.
At the same time, the headlight rings were re-plated along with the front bumpers.
While the rear fenders were being re-painted, the large stainless stone guards were removed and re-polished.
I also had the starter motor rebuilt and the changed the spark plugs and put in a new Optima battery.
All the gauges work.
Oil pressure is consistent at 60 lbs.
The seats are out of an AC and the carpet is new.
This car drives like a bat out of hell! Up until last year, the car sported is original hood, original carburetor and intake manifold.
A second aluminum hood was made on an English wheel and painted to match the rest of the car.
All of the previously mentioned items removed, including the factory seats, go with the sale.
If you know anything about Allards, then you know that to see the factory bumpers and hubcaps still on the car is very rare.
Also, the car still has it’s factory leather door panels with those giant zippers and the lightning bolt design sewn in.
Even more unique is the original factory wood floors and rockers; as well as the leather straps underneath the car that hold the suspension.
All still in perfect order.
The undercarriage has been detailed.
Allard K2′s were all aluminum body cars that were often raced back in the day with American engines put in once they arrived from England.
Yes, they arrived here without engines.
VIN: 91K 3022 Engine: 3022 If you are serious about buying this car, you WILL CALL ME at 608-212-8774 for additional photos.
I absolutely refuse to email photo sets to ‘picture collectors’ who have no intention or means to buy this car.
tom griffith/madison wisconsin email: firstname.lastname@example.org Allard produced just 119 of these 1952 K2′s.
This car is not some trailer queen or museum piece.
It is driven and enjoyed.
I take this car out about twice a week and drive around town to keep it exercised.
Last week the carbs were reset and the timing adjusted.
This car has never been shown nationally.
This summer the Glenmoor Gathering in Ohio is featuring the Allard marque.
I have already put in my application to attend should the car not sell here on ebay.
Or, the new owner could go with the car instead.
Either way, this car would be welcome at any concourse event.
