As a founder committee member of the Allard Owners Club, I found it great news to hear of Allard FGF 290 in the May issue.
I wonder of there is any news of any of the three Allards I used in trials and sprints in the 1950s. One was the first of Sydney’s cars, CLK 5, which I restored to its original condition, the others were the ex-Appleton JYH 613, and the ex-Imhoff KLD 5 Any information would be most welcome.
