1948 Allard Barn Find

posted in: Online Around the Net | 0
Sports Car Market just did a write up on the Allard, the man and founder.  My take away was that he was ahead of his time putting big American engines into British roadsters, successfully raced them and influenced Shelby in the making of the Cobra.
On eBay out of Tuxedo Park, New York for an unreserved starting bid of $19,000 which is what it closed at on August 31.

“Barn Find

Story we have is car was stripped down to metal 30 years ago and never was finished

Car came from out West poss Arizona area from what we hear.

Has original body, trans, and engine.

Needs a total restoration but seems like most parts are there and its not a Rust bucket. All panels are solid

floors seem to need the most help

No Soft top but frame for soft top looks to .be in place.

Front Seats seem to be in good shape

The Wood Dash is all there but wood is a mess.  pictures tell the story. Steering wheel looks to be origanal.
