This L-type was restored in the early 1990s by Bolton-domiciled Arthur Buckley, who had bought it in the early 1980s. Our vendor acquired the Allard in 2016 and continued re-commissioning work the previous owner had in train, which had included a re-conditioned Marles steering box in 2014. In 2017 new track rod ends were fitted and latterly fuel and ignition systems have been upgraded, work including the fitting of a new Stromberg carburetor and Mallory distributor. The white bodywork remains highly presentable while the red interior shows little signs of use. The hood was re-furbished late last year and new side screens fitted. Our vendor advises little mileage has been covered since the 1990s restoration and the car remains in generally very good condition.

This 'family' Allard boast traditional flathead power and usability in a rarely-seen form. With just 10 survivors known this is a first-rate opportunity to acquire some Anglo-American muscle.
