Allard P1 Description
Manufacturer : Allard Motor Company       Year : 1949

The Allard P1 (known when new time more often than not simply as the Allard 3.6-litre Saloon) is a five seater two door sports saloon produced by the British Allard Motor Company between 1949 and 1952.

The cars used Ford engines and transmissions which helped reduce problems finding service support and parts for cars exported to the US which was a key export market for UK makers of larger cars in the 1950s.

A car tested by the British magazine The Autocar in 1949 recorded a top speed of 84.5 mph (136.0 km/h) and could accelerate from 060 mph (97 km/h) in 23.4 seconds. A fuel consumption of 17 miles per imperial gallon (17 L/100 km; 14 mpg-US) was recorded. The test car cost 1277 including taxes.

Unusually in a car of post-war design, the car featured a windscreen, hinged at the top, which could be opened "by means of a central toggle mechanism". Interior fittings displayed unusual attention to detail by the car's designers, with good interior storage including a packages shelf under the facia and "pockets formed...in the thickness of the doors". Instrumentation included, in addition to a choke control, a "screw-type hand throttle" as well as a switch for a light in the engine compartment.

A heater that drew fresh air from the outside the car was included as a standard feature on exported cars, and was offered as an optional extra for the domestic market.

In 1952 an Allard P1, driven by Sydney Allard himself, along with Guy Warburton, won the Monte Carlo Rally. Tom Lush was the navigator.
