Allard Motor Company - Beyond the Records

NEW

The Allard Motor Company archives are a particularly rich resource for those investigating its history and its influence on the British motor industry. The records cover the years of operation of the car manufacturer 1946-1958 and have been scanned and included in this book along with many previously unseen official photographs, documents, and correspondence.

Supported by an easy-to-use reference spreadsheet, an Allard owner is invited to open to the pages where their car is featured, and a casual observer can learn about the indelible impact this small British car manufacturer made on motoring history.

Author, Gavin Allard the grandson of Sydney Allard, the man who led the company into post-war Britain and beyond, details the people that built the cars, the dealerships that sold them and their customers.

This work comes in 2 volumes with hard covers and dust jackets in a slipcase.

Allard - The Complete Story

The remarkable story of everything Sydney Herbert Allard achieved in motor sport and motor car manufacture is framed in an up-to-date commentary co-authored by his own son. This is a tribute unswayed by legend, but based on the facts and achievements of his eponymous company.
With contributions from the Allard Owners' Club and Allard Register, this book contains painstaking research of Allard history from 1929 to the present day, including previously unpublished material.

Just under 2,000 Allards were built, and approximately 510 are believed to remain on the road or known to be under -restoration. More await discovery - even as this book was being written, one of Sydney's long-lost 1930s 'Allard Specials' has been found after years being forgotten.
Other topics covered in this remarkable book include: car-by-car engineering and design details; unseen ideas and projects; the history of the Allard marque in motor sport and the Allard story in the USA.
