The return of the Allard JR to road and track, points the way to a new era for Allard cars. The last JR was built by the Allard Motor Company back in 1955 – chassis number 3407. The JR followed a line of highly distinctive Allard cars and is a rare car. Only seven JR chassis being manufactured between 1953 and 1956.
We are preparing for the production of three cars. The first car, with continuation chassis number 3408, to be completed later in 2016 will be the first new Allard car to be built since 1958. The new JR cars are being built to the FIA specification of the 1953 JR built for Colonel Schilling USAF and raced at Le Mans by Sydney Allard, before being exported to the USA, where Schilling drove it in sports car races.
All cars will be built to the period correct specifications necessary to obtain HTP documentation, allowing them to compete in a wide range of prestigious National and ternational Historic Races. The cars will comply with current IVA regulations and will be built to comply with the necessary rules to enable them to be driven on public roads, if the owner on occasion, wants to do so.
The first new Allard cars are being built by the son and grandson of Sydney Allard, founder of the Allard Motor Company and designer and engineer behind all the Allard cars. We have the support of the Allard Owners Club worldwide, the Allard Register in the USA and original engineers who designed and built many of the original Allards.
Very few, if any, reproduced historic competition cars have such a unique and close authenticity with the original cars and their historic pedigree. Taken together with a very competitive price, when compared to most other historic race cars, the Allard JR makes a potentially sound investment too.
