1951 Al­lard

New Zealand Classic Car - - Nationwide News -

The owner of this Al­lard stopped by to have a chat with us at Big Boys Toys late last year, telling us about an in­ter­est­ing restora­tion project he was cur­rently work­ing on.

The car is now around three-quar­ter fin­ished, with still plenty of hard work left to be done such as wiring, fit­ting bon­net vents, hood vent and side ex­haust sys­tem. It will run its orig­i­nal Ford ‘flat­head’ en­gine.

This Al­lard also has an in­ter­est­ing his­tory, hav­ing been re­cov­ered from Cargill’s Cas­tle in Dunedin and sub­se­quently sur­viv­ing the Christchurch earth­quake be­fore end­ing up with the cur­rent owner.
