About the object

The Allard’s meteoric success on race circuits of the early 1950s belies its humble beginnings as the pipe dream of race car driver Sydney Allard, whose creations utilized his significant ingenuity and American V-8 engines to compete at the highest level of motor sports. The K2 model was an evolution of the K1, and was produced from 1949 to 1952, intended for clients looking for performance on the road or track. The new “Touring Roadster” sat on a 106" wheelbase and featured upgraded front suspension with coil springs and enlarged fenders. It maintained its slender extended bonnet, which housed various V-8 engines from Ford/Mercury, Chrysler, and Cadillac. According to The Allard Register, only 117 examples of the K2 were built. Chassis K23127 was delivered on October 7, 1952, bound for the US. Once stateside, it was fitted with a Cadillac V-8 motor with Offenhauser heads and two four-barrel carbs, considered to be the preferred choice. Presenting in black paint with a red interior, this K2 was owned by William Avery of Pennsylvania, who hardly drove the car but commissioned a light restoration in 2012. He assigned Lamborghini of Orlando to repaint the bodywork and refurbish the interior, renew the electricals, and install a roll bar. In 2012, the Allard was purchased by the consignor, a private East Coast collector, who has used the car sparingly. Never raced and always meticulously maintained, this Allard comes with the promise of a great motoring experience. classic car
