Lot 006: 1949 ALLARD M-TYPE DROPHEAD COUPE

Fine Historic Motor Cars, H&H Sales Limited (23 November 2005)

Finished in red with black leather upholstery (piped in red) to the front seats, this particular example is variously rated by the vendor as being in fair (electrical equipment), good (engine, chassis, paintwork, interior trim) or very good (gearbox, aluminium bodywork, wheels / tyres) condition. In the present ownership since 1977, it was apparently "fitted with a replacement Ford V8 engine shortly after acquisition but has not been extensively used since then". Although more recent work has seen it treated to a reconditioned gearbox. Said to run "very smoothly" and to be in "very sound overall" order, this rare surviving Allard retains its original wheel spats (though these are not present in the photograph). Believed to have been first registered in Lincolnshire, it is offered for sale with MOT certificate valid until 11th August 2006 and historic class (free) road tax until 31st July 2006.
