1952 Allard K2

Between 1946 to 1948 around 151 examples of the Allard K1 were created. The last few K1 examples were assembled around 1950. The first cars to bear Sidney Allard's name was around 1936 with the SMMT Jubilee Cavalcade marking the fiftieth year of the British motor industry. The alphabet was used to identify each of his production models. The J was the competition car while the K was the production version. It would later become known as the K1.

The K1 was replaced with the K2 which featured a design only slightly different than the K1. It had a smaller grille on a wider front end and a sleeker trail with a trunk that could be opened. The elegant bodies rested on a front coil spring suspension borrowed from the P saloon car.

Between 1950 and 1952 there were a total of 119 K2 Roadsters created. This example with chassis number K3036 was sent to the US in March of 1952. It was one of the last to be created, and like most Allards, was shipped without the engine. It was later fitted with a 317.4 cubic-inch Lincoln overhead valve V8 engine that could produce 160 horsepower. It was mated to a three-speed manual gearbox and has four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
