Allard Motor Company

Beyond the Records

A rich resource for investigating the history of a short-lived but influential British carmaker.
The Allard Motor Company archives are a particularly rich resource for those investigating the history and influence on the British motor industry of this short-lived but significant carmaker. The production records included in this comprehensive book cover the years of operation 1946-1958 and sit alongside many previously unseen official photographs, documents, and correspondence. Supported by an easy-to-use reference spreadsheet, Allard owners are invited to open to the pages where their car is featured, and casual observers can also learn about the indelible impact this small British car manufacturer made on motoring history. Author Gavin Allard—the grandson of Sydney Allard, who led the company into post-war Britain and beyond—details the people that built the cars, the dealerships that sold them, and the drivers who took them to the roads.
