The New Allard J3 ‘Supercar’ – Once Seen Never Forgotten

A chassis drawing for a J3 model was produced by the Allard Motor Company back in 1954, when the company planned to build the new model, had funds been available.

The J3 has a new tubular chassis and is fitted with a modern high performance (580 bhp) emission compliant GMC V8 coupled to a six speed manual transmission.

The body profile in many respects, is based on the iconic Allard J2X, but now has a body fairing behind both driver and passenger. There are subtle changes in many areas of the body, which enhance the eye catching profile without losing the classic J2X image.

Right or left hand drive.

Price: £ P.O.A.
