This rare L-Type sport touring car is a right-hand drive example that is beautifully finished in burgundy with gray leather interior, soft-top, tonneau cover and side curtains. The leather is new, as is the Wilton wool carpet. The dashboard is made from distinctive Indian rosewood.
The uncommon Allard L-Type is based on a Ford chassis and runs with a Ford flathead V-8 engine mated to a three-speed floor-shift manual transmission. The cascading contours seen at the front of the car are dominated by its distinguishing grille design. The Allard also exhibits foglights, a rear-mounted spare with cover, color-keyed steel wheels, hubcaps and whitewall tires.
