Share On

Sold for $252,000 at 2022 Broad Arrow Auctions : The Passion for the Drive.
The competition-model two-seated Allard J2 was introduced in 1949. The J2 was fitted with a big Chrysler or Cadillac engine that developed phenomenal torque at low speeds.

In 1951, Allard introduced the J2X. Low, wicked lines characterized the J2X. In a quirky piece of design for a modern sports car, the spare tire was mounted on the side. As with other non-supercharged racers, an air scoop was fitted on top of the alligator hood. At speeds over 90 mph, the large air intake on the grille emitted a shrill whistle that sounded exactly like a supercharger. The J2X sold for four years. It was on par with the later AC Cobra with a light chassis and a powerful engine that added up to a very fast ride. The 172-horsepower engine propelled the car from zero-to-sixty in ten seconds and had a top speed of 111.6 mph. It weighed 1,980 pounds.

Prior to the current owner purchasing the car, it was owned by a single family in California. It was parked in a barn for the past 40 years after a carburetor fire, which is evident by the blistering of the paint on the hood. The car has never been restored.
