This example has had only five owners from new. Restored in the early 1990s by Arthur Buckley of Bolton, who had acquired it circa 1980, this Allard was bought from the estate of the late Robert Howell-Jones in June 2016. Since acquisition the I have continued Mr Howell-Jones's re-commissioning. Works carried out include overhauling the steering with a reconditioned Marles steering box by Steering Services, Dorking (September 2014) and fitting new track-rod ends supplied by Belcher Engineering, Norfolk (September 2017). More recently, the fuel and ignition systems have been upgraded and the weather equipment refurbished. This involved installing a new Stromberg carburettor, Mallory distributor, Pertronix ignition, and Malpassi fuel regulator/ filter by The Paris/ Peking rally raid company Jim Turnball, Royal Kustoms of Poole, Hampshire (May 2017) while in December 2019 Waboo Automotive refurbished the hood and fitted new aluminium panels and new heavy-duty 'extra visibility' side screens trimmed in matching Mohair. A 2017 concours entrant at Shelsley Walsh's Vintage Nostalgia meeting, the Allard has mainly been used for picnic trips into the Black Mountains and visits to the historic book town of Hay-on-Wye. Only minimal mileage has been covered since the 1990s restoration, and that the car remains in very good condition. A fantastic all-rounder the L1 is as comfortable on the daily commute with seating for four, relaxed continental touring or hill climbing at the weekends flexing its V8 power. A large history file of restoration invoices comes with the car; an old-style logbook; a quantity of expired MoTs; and a V5C Registration Certificate.

This is a Private sale. This is my own car from my own small collection. I am offering it for sale because I need to rationalise what cars I can use and I have not used the Allard since the beginning of lockdown.
