1947 Allard K1 Two Seater Sports

This is the only surviving rally Allard V8 and the only roadworthy K1 known to exist in a state other than totally rebuilt.

It was the third member of the red, white and blue team of cars that was entered in the 1947 Alpine Rally.  It came fifth in the hands of Leonard Potter.

Fitted with a powerful V8 Ford side-valve engine, this was a really “hot” sports car for its time.
