Description

The Allard J-2X is the most famous of all the Allards. The cars were manufactured by Sydney Allard in London. The cars that came to the USA were imported without engines, and then the importer put engines in them. This car has a Cadillac V8.

In 1952 they were raced extensively by Carrol Shelby, Tom Cole and others, and were the most successful sports racers of that year.

History

This particular car #J2X3042 was imported into Los Angeles, California in February 1952 and was raced in Southern California in the 50ís. It is believed to have been used in the late 50ís as a drag racer. The car then went into disrepair and was stored in a barn for over 25 years. I have a more detailed chronology of its history, including the original Allard Delivery sheets and early photos of the car, all of which will be sold with the car.

Restoration

Commencing in 1998 the car went through a 2 Ĺ year restoration by John Harden of Oklahoma City. John is the center of most things Allard in the USA and has performed various restorations of J2Xís including Brian Dietzís J2X which was on the cover of Vintage Motorsport 2000/5. This car was done right after Dietzís car and is done to the same exacting standards as that one.

The owner visited the Harden facility many times during the restoration, and has an extensive set of photographs of the restoration as it progressed. These photographs will be part of the sale. In addition there is a set of full restoration documents.
