Henry Allard’s dream was to take an English lightweight car and piling it with American Ford V8 and made very successful race cars.  This car was nicknamed the Black Bomber and it won races all over Europe.

This Drophead Coupe example was purchased by the current owner in September of 2006. The car is painted in black with a matching top and upholstery. Inside, there are Smiths instruments and an unrestored Bluemels ‘Brooklands’ steering wheel. The ‘flathead’ Ford V8 engine produces 85 horsepower and there are four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.

Englishman Sydney Allard created many innovative performance machines using readily available low-cost parts from marques such as Ford. His first car, a four-seat Ford, was entered in the 1934 Tourist Trophy. The car wore bodywork from an old Grand Prix Bugatti and rode atop a shortened wheelbase. Work continued over the years on several other personal vehicles before Allard began selling cars to the public in 1946.

The M1 Drophead Coupe was the first postwar Allard model, introduced in 1947. It had full-length doors and a folding convertible top. Under the bonnet was a 3.6-liter Ford V-8, with a gearbox from Ford of England’s V-8 Pilot model. During its four-year production run, a total of 500 examples were produced.
