A Sports Car With a Hot Rod’s Heart……..The 1950 Allard K1
Sydney Allard’s apprenticeship with a London dealer selling both Daimlers and Buicks left him with a thorough understanding of the differences between British and American cars, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of each. By the time he began building cars of his own in the late 1930s, his preference was for a light and nimble chassis, typically infused with flathead Ford V-8 power. One such example, a unique 1950 Allard K1.
The two-seat Allard K1 debuted in 1946, featuring a 106-inch wheelbase instead of the 112-inch wheelbase. Designed to be used on road and track, the K1 used a rear axle and transverse leaf spring setup, combined with a split-axle, transverse leaf spring front suspension.In addition to engines from Ford, later K1 models also used engines from Cadillac and Lincoln.
The K1 is powered by a 1947 Mercury Type 59A flathead V-8, bored and stroked to 295-cu.in. and fed by a trio of Stromberg 97 carburetors perched atop an Edelbrock manifold. Equipped with Edelbrock heads as well, output is quite likely higher than the stated 85 horsepower, and torque is sent to the car’s rear wheels via a three-speed manual transmission.
Allards quickly developed a reputation as fearsome cars to drive, thanks in part to their high power-to-weight ratio and aggressive suspension tuning.Some called Allard’s cars crude, but perhaps purpose-built was a more fitting descriptor. Sydney Allard was a racer first and a constructor second, so his sports and racing cars were targeted towards those of a similar leaning.

ᗩᒪ ᑕᗩᑭOᑎᕮ’S ᗷᑌᒪᒪᕮT-ᑭᖇOOᖴ 1928 ᑕᗩᗪIᒪᒪᗩᑕ
Nearly 100 years after his gangster heyday Al Capone’s name still gets pulses racing.A bullet-proof 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan that belonged to the infamous mobster prior to his 1932 incarceration is currently up for sale.
Of course, if you want to get your hands on the historic car in addition to its nefarious roots, its also believed to be the oldest surviving armored vehicle prepare to cough up $1,000,000.
The Cadillac’s armor protection may be its most impressive attribute. While it no longer features the 3,000 pounds of asbestos wrapped steel plating it once did, it still features nearly inch thick glass throughout the vehicle.
