From the 1930s to the 1950s, 'Brit' Sydney Allard built race cars and then street cars which bore his name. Among his most famous creations were the J2 and its extended version, the J2X. Though they could be driven on the street, they were purpose built for racing. The light weight creations typically carried large American V-8 engines and were the scourge of American race tracks in the early fifties.

This Allard J2 carries a 42-gallon gas tank, a necessity for feeding its triple carbureted Cadillac V-8.

In the capable hands of Bill Pollack, this Allard J2 Roadster (#1850) won twice at Pebble Beach, in 1951 and 1952. On both of these occasions, Bill was driving for Tom Carstens, who had a team of mechanics, outfitted in matching overalls, to maintain the car. Presentation mattered to Carstens in 1952, and despite the weight considerations normal to racing, the car was outfitted with a luggage rack and whitewalls. With the car's Cadillac engine, power was not in question, and when Bill hit the gas pedal, acceleration was immediate. Bill recalled nearly driving off a steep road overlooking the Pacific when first testing the car the day prior to the 1951 race, and he also recalled with more than a bit of delight that his fast acceleration off the starting line on one occasion took out his primary competition, kicking up chunks of asphalt at another Allard. In addition to its success at Pebble Beach, the Allard accumulated a stellar record throughout both the 1951 and 1952 seasons; in fact, its first win at Pebble Beach marked the start of a string of eight consecutive victories.
