Roadster
Chassis #: J1578
This 1950 J-2 Allard was raced by the company founder, Sydney Allard and his co-driver Tommy Cole, in the 1950 LeMans endurance race. It finished an impressive third overall and first in class, averaging nearly 88 MPH, for the full 24 hours. This accomplishment is compound by the fact that the car had only top gear for the last 11 hours. This was the first attempt by Allard at LeMans and was the highest finish ever of any factory Allard.

The Allard arrived stateside after Le Mans and was raced from 1950-53 at Watkins Glen, Bridgehampton, Sebring, Torrey Pines, Santa Barbara and other tracks. Its career ended with a cockpit fire in 1954 while at Santa Barbara. Joe Landaker (a noted mechanic for Parravano, Edgar, and Von Neumann) purchased the car in 1955. He placed it into storage. It was purchased by the present owners in 1988, completing their multi-year search for the 'lost Le Mans Allard.'

The car was restored to its 1950 Le Mans livery in Australia in 2001. It has been actively campaigned in historic races in both Australia and the western United States.
