In the 1930s, British racing driver and constructor Sydney Allard started out building Ford-based specials. During World War II, he rebuilt Fords for the British forces. When the war came to a close, there were plenty of parts and engines available, so he began building two-seater sports car on a box-section frame with transverse leaf springing and American V-8 engines.

The Allard sports cars of the 1950s included the J2, followed by the J2-X featuring a de Dion rear axle on coil springs and radius arms, and front radius rods relocated ahead of a split front axle. A total of 83 examples of the J2-X were built. This particular example was formerly owned by American vintage racer and Allard connoisseur, Duncan Emmons of Rancho Mirage, California, and later by a collector who reportedly invested some $74,000 to prepare it for many rallies. It was used from 2006 through 2009, including appearing on the poster for the Copperstate 1000 in 2007.

This car is powered by an Oldsmobile 394 cubic-inch V8 engine. It has 3.31 gears in a four-speed transmission.
