1948 ALLARD K1 1000 € 129.800

1948 ALLARD K1

Purchased by the last owner in England in 2004 in excellent condition, it was again subjected to a conservative restoration and in 2006 it was approved with FIVA fiche.

The car is equipped with two engines, the original matching numbers in excellent condition is currently kept in a military crate that contained the engine, also Ford, currently installed.

The power does not differ but this second engine called “24 STUDS” by the number of head bolts is what lends itself to being tuned for racing.

It fits short ratios, ideal for Rally where K1s were winning since the early 1950s (including Monte Carlo Rally) or for hillclimbs or for Trial races, a specialty much loved by the British.

About 130 ALLARD K1s have been built and only few are reported to have survived in the world.

The last owner took part in numerous events with this splendid and rare car: “2000 kilometer Deutschland”, “Castel Arquato-Vernasca”, “Bologna-Raticosa”, “Coppa dei due mari”.

    Backstage of the documentary extracted from episode 113 of the television program “Gentleman Driver” –

    Allard is an English brand much better known in the US market than in the European one. In fact, Sydney Allard, the founder of the brand, used large American 8-cylinder engines in the production of his models, which greatly favored their marketing overseas.

    The Allards were always cars with a sporting character, even in the touring versions and also had great importance in important competitions such as the “24 hours of Le Mans” and the “1000Miglia”.

    Few car brands have identified themselves so significantly with their founder and ended their existence with the passing of Sidney Allard in 1956.

    British Motor Club Italia, il Club per chi ama le auto storiche inglesi!

    E con loro privilegia un particolare stile di vita, un mix di eleganza, sport e tempo libero, che si circonda di oggetti di passione, cerca piccole grandi emozioni di guida, forti profumi di cuoio e radica, sogna un mondo fatto di miglia e di misure non decimali. Le auto inglesi non hanno un motore ma un cuore, sono passepartout senza tempo che aiutano a stringere vere amicizie, a crescere insieme, a conoscere le leggi della meccanica e della fisica, a guidare come raffinati gentleman driver. A diventare giorno per giorno dei cavalieri che, come al tempo di re Artù e della tavola rotonda, sono un “tutt’uno con il loro cavallo”.
    Soprattutto le auto d’oltremanica si rivelano un incredibile, eccezionale grimaldello per aprire lo scrigno di mille borghi antichi, per entrare in luoghi di fascino, castelli e ville nobiliari, per vivere emozioni uniche e andare in allegra compagnia alla scoperta di luoghi affascinanti e sconosciuti della nostra Bella Italia. Auto inglesi quindi per un turismo culturale e consapevole, per piccoli viaggi dell’anima. Più le useremo e più diverranno parte di noi, le nostre amate auto. Perchè, come scriveva Saint Exupéry ne “Il Piccolo Principe”…”è il tempo che hai perduto per la rosa che ha fatto la tua rosa così importante”.
