Evaluation: One of 119 built, and shown at the 1952 New York Auto Show. Originally fitted with a Cadillac engine but received a 392 Hemi in 1957. In Australia from the 1960s until the late 1980s, then restored in the UK in the 1990s. Regularly raced in historic events from then on. Older paint, a little tired. Small dent in the right front fender. Wheel weights taped on. Paint coming off the exhaust tips. The aluminum guards over the rear fenders are also beat up. Worn seats. Lots of old event stickers. A race car through and through.
Bottom Line: This isn’t a cheap price for a K-Series Allard, but for a sorted and proven vintage racer that is fun, usable and competitive, it doesn’t seem like a bad price at all. The new owner can enter it into any number of events and mix it up with cars costing 10 times as much or more than the fat-fendered Allard. There are far less sensible ways to spend 100 grand.
