Motor Sport and How It Helps To Sell British Cars Overseas

Before a considerable, mixed audience at the Waldorf Hotel on November 2nd, Sydney Allard, Managing Director of the Allard Motor Co., Ltd., addressed the Publicity Club of London on the subject of "Motor Sport and How It Helps to Sell British Cars Overseas." Briefly outlining his career as a competition motorist, Mr. Allard said he commenced in 1928 with a Morgan three-wheeler, which he ran at...

Perhaps it was the advent of spring, but early in April we decided to leave our city office and go motoring door-to-door in and around London looking at this and that. First, we went off to Gatwick Airport to visit the Wade Engineering Co. and found Densham and Sqdn.-Ldr. B. H. Moir Winslett engaged in moving-in to their useful ex-R.A.F. premises. Their business is the manufacture of...

The Special Short-Chassis Allard "Competition" 2-Seater

Brilliant top-gear flexibility and traditional acceleration. A silent, smooth-running car capable of high cross-country average speeds. The post-war Allard, product of an enthusiast whose trials reputation up to 1939 was second to none, has aroused the greatest interest and speculation in motoring circles. Consequently, we are glad to be able to present a test report on one of these cars with the...

FOUR FORDS "MOTOR SPORT" Tests the Discbraked Zephyr Overdrive Convertible, the Latest Taunus 17M 4-speed Saloon, Anne Hall's Tulip Rally Anglia and an Allard Shorrock-supercharged Anglia LAST year, although our road-test curriculum was a full one, I drove but one Dagenham Ford car, and that to sample its optional disc front brakes rather than the car itself. This is a state of affairs that might...

The Steyr-Allard

The first published description of Sydney Allard's new air-cooled V8 sprint car, which is competing for the British Hill-Climb Championship. One of the sensations of this year's sprint events has been the debut of S. H. Allard's new sprint car, his air-cooled V8 single-seater Steyr-Allard. Allard commenced Motoring fast many years ago with a Morgan 3-wheeler and later with a very ingenious four-...

Over the Welsh rough stuff with a Coupé Allard

Motor Sport conducts a severe test of a popular high-performance car  Last year Motor Sport  tested a "Competition" model Allard two-seater; this year the coupé model came up for test. This set us a poser, for the Allard has won such a reputation for itself as a practical, go-anywhere high-performance car that how to give it anything like real work to do was a difficult problem. Even before we...

We Hear In a dry barn in Wales, R. L. Simms has unearthed a well-preserved side-by side two-seater, V-twin two-stroke Carden cyclecar. Last registered in 1924, there was still oil in the engine, which had good compression — the new owner is now grappling with timing the ML magneto to suit the engine. In the same loft which had sheltered this cyclecar are a number of early motor-cycles. Then...

Evolution of the Allard

Sydney Allard's first Allard, the famous CLK5, was built in 1939. It was evolved from a crashed Ford V8 saloon. The chassis was cut down, normal Ford suspension, rod-operated brakes and welded Ford wheels retained, while the body had a GP Bugatti tail, and the steering box was also Bugatti. The engine was a standard 30-hp V8. Incidentally, Warburton later acquired it and today it still exists....

We Hear H. Birkett has sold his Type 44 Bugatti to Norman Sharp, a former 3-litre Bentley owner, and now motors in a series of Austin Sevens. The early lightcars are certainly getting out and about. We saw a beaded-edge-shod "8/18" Talbot two-seater and a Charron-Laycock two-seater recently, and encountered a "hip-bath" Gwynne Eight in Chiswick. It seems that the remains of a Sizaire-Naudin still...
