1949 Allard K1 For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Sáragga Collection event, 20 - 21 September 2019. Estimate:€60,000 - €80,000 One of just 151 K1s builtEntirely unique; delivered new to Portugal Based in South West London, Sydney Allard’s motor-car company was founded in 1945. Foreshadowing the high-performance V-8–powered cars of the 1960s, Allard’s featured large American engines in a lightweight British chassis and body. The first Allard sports car was the K1, which was a two-seater on a box-section frame with transverse leaf springs. Chassis 71KLH 886, on offer here, is equipped with a 3.6-litre Ford flathead V-8 as it would have been in period. According to the Allard Club, it was completed as a left-hand-drive chassis on 16 December 1948 and marked for export to Portugal. In the late 1940s, Allard experienced a series of body worker strikes, and this car was sold as a chassis, engine, and completed body up to the bulkhead. Its rear bodywork was then completed by the buyer. In this case the style somewhat resembles an M-Type. Once in Portugal much of the history is unknown; however, at some point the vehicle was switched to right-hand drive. The dash was likely altered at the same time, along with the addition of the unusual column shift. An entirely unique car, Portuguese from new, this Allard is one of a kind.Um de apenas 151 K1 construídosAbsolutamente único; entregue novo em PortugalSydney Allard fundou a Allard em 1945, estabelecendo a sua sede na região do sudoeste londrino. Antecipando os automóveis de alto desempenho com motor V8 dos anos 60, criou uma fórmula de sucesso, montando motores americanos de grande capacidade em chassis e carroçarias britânicos muito leves.O primeiro desportivo da marca foi o K1, de dois lugares, com chassis em estrutura tipo caixa e molas de lâmina transversais. O chassis 71KLH 886 aqui apresentado está equipado com motor Ford V8 flathead de 3,6 litros, como seria o caso na época. Segundo o clube Allard, ficou pronto, com condução à esquerda, a 16 de dezembro de 1948. Estava identificado para exportação, tendo Portugal como destino. No final dos anos 40, a Allard sofreu as consequências de algumas greves dos trabalhadores dedicados às carroçarias. Por esse motivo, este exemplar foi vendido em chassis, motor e secção dianteira até à antepara. Toda a parte traseira terá sido depois concluída pelo comprador. Neste caso, o estilo adotado faz lembrar um M-Type.Uma vez em Portugal, muita da sua história é desconhecida. No entanto, a dada altura, foi transformado para condução à direita. O painel de instrumentos certamente foi alterado, tendo sido adicionado o curioso comando da caixa de velocidades na coluna de direção. Um exemplar verdadeiramente único, português desde sempre, como este Allard não existe outro igual.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at - details above.
