1948 Allard L type

1948 Allard L type in very nice condition. Using a crashed Ford V8 coupĂ© on to which he had grafted the body from a Grand Prix Bugatti, racing driver Sydney Allard constructed one of the most unlikely of all pre-war trials specials. However, the Allard Special’s lightweight construction and relatively powerful American V8 engine, although not the first such combination, demonstrated the formula’s potential and provided the inspiration for future imitators, including Carroll Shelby who acknowledged Allard’s influence on the Cobra. After WW2, Allard progressed from special-builder to motor manufacturer, though the latter activity was really little more than a means of financing the company’s competition programme. Post-war Allards combined the same virtues of light weight, independent front suspension and an abundance of American V8 power, which had been features of that first trials special of the mid-1930s. These favourable characteristics enabled Allard to establish a formidable competition record in the immediate post-war years, Sydney himself finishing 3rd at Le Mans in a J2 two-seater and winning the Monte Carlo Rally outright in a P2 saloon. Introduced in 1946, the L-type employed Allard’s trademark independently suspended ‘split’ front axle and transverse-leaf rear end in a chassis 6” longer than that of the contemporary K-type, the extra length being used to accommodate two rear passenger seats. Like the vast majority of production Allards, the L-type used Ford/Mercury components, these being readily obtainable from Ford in the UK, the choice of engines being the 3,622cc Ford V8 or modified 4,375cc Mercury. A mere 191 examples were produced between 1946 and 1950, only 10 of which are currently known to the UK Allard Register. We were just fortunate enough to purchase this rare and very cool looking car and are offering her back to the market at only $ 59,500. Can ship anywhere on the Globe for a reasonable price.

1931 Bentley Le Mans Special

Here we have a beautiful 1931 Bentley Le Mans Special with a Bentley / Rolls Royce 8 cyl. engine with multiple carb set up and a great sound ! While naturally aspirated Bentleys dominated endurance racing in the early 20th century and W. O. Bentley himself rejected supercharging as a perversion of his creations, the so-called “Blower Bentleys” are the best known to date in the popular automotive culture despite never having won a major race. In fact the Blower Bentley was the brainchild of “Bentley Boy” Henry “Tim” Birkin, who was well-known for his never-ending quest for more power in his racers. Against W.O.’s express wishes, Birkin and his fellow Bentley Boy Woolf Barnato set up shop in Welwyn in 1929 to begin producing supercharged Bentleys, the first of which used crankshaft-driven blowers built by famed English engineer Charles Amherst Villiers. When Birkin was granted permission by Barnato – a multiple Le Mans winner and, not coincidentally, a part owner of Bentley – to enter a team in the French classic, albeit in a different class than the factory 6.6 L cars so as not to compete directly with W.O. The effort ended badly; both of Birkin’s cars suffered blown engines, and W.O. was irate to learn that the cars’ appearance then obligated him to build another 50 supercharged cars for homologation. Designed to race at Le Mans, the most famous Blower Bentley, the Birkin Monoposto, actually scored the first win for a Blower Bentley on the Brooklands race track in 1930 and held the Brooklands speed record at 137.96 MPH from 1931 to 1934. That historic racer is recreated in the superb machine offered here, which is built on a Mark IV chassis and suspension and uses a multiple-carbureted Rolls Royce/Bentley eight cylinder engine in concert with a 4-speed transmission. The distinctive aluminum bodywork duplicates the Birkin Monoposto design as raced by Birkin at Brooklands. Titled as a 1931 Bentley, this unique Le Mans Special beautifully evokes the spirit of the Bentley Boys era. This car is a "special" in the Bentley fashion ; it has a Mark VI chassis and everything you see is genuine Bentley ; engine , transmission , suspension , brakes , the works. The body is a perfect recreation in aluminium of the famous " Birkin Blower " the car that raced Le Mans and was driven by famous race driver Tim Birkin. As two seat configuration , you can actually put on your goggles and helmet and bring your better half along for a exciting ride ! Has lights , fenders and signal lights , so is street legal too ! Truly a show stopper and built with craftsmenship and pride like some of the other " specials" built by Petersen engineering for example. A truly exciting car in every way ! Priced at only $275,000. Will listen to offers and interesting trades..

1913 Packard run about

Packard introduced its first 6-cylinder automobile, the 525 CI Model 1-48, in 1911. That was followed by the smaller displacement 1-38 in December 1912. Displacing 415 CI, it had 7 main bearings and generated 60 HP, and was the first Packard to use left hand drive and an electric starter-generator designed by Charles Kettering. Its most intriguing feature was an electrical system control unit mounted on the steering column. Designed by chief engineer Jesse Vincent, who later conceived the Twin Six and Liberty aircraft engines, it brought ignition, light and horn switches and carburetor mixture controls within easy reach of the driver, vastly simplifying operation. Built on a shorter 115.5-inch wheelbase, this Packard 1-38 Runabout measured nearly 2 feet shorter than the full-sized Packards, resulting in sportier performance. It was meticulously restored by Tim Olendorf, and later repainted in correct Red with White pinstriping after its sale to a noted Michigan collector who commissioned award winning restorer Brian Joseph to complete the work. Having previously won numerous awards including a First in Class at Meadow Brook Hall, Best of Show at Bay Harbour and a First in Class at Greenfield Village, it is completely ready to once again show and compete on the Concours circuit.
