A beautifully restored and highly desirable Cadillac-powered J2, documented with factory build records. Fascinating race history from new, including at Watkins Glen, Bridgehampton, and Giant’s Despair, among others. Ideal for VSCCA or pre-1957 rallies and road events.
It is with pleasure that we offer this outstanding 1951 Allard J2 roadster, chassis number 99J 2123. This highly-desirable J2 is a superb well-equipped example with a fascinating, well-documented history from new. Original factory invoice and build sheets show the order for this car came through on the 7th of June, 1951, specified with knock-off wire wheels, left-hand drive, left-hand spare wheel, twin fuel pumps, headlamp stone guards, and fittings to receive a Cadillac engine. The records also show the buyer requested a red interior and supplied a sample of metallic blue paint for the body. Delivery took place on the 31st of August, 1951, to Mr. Del Lee of Grosse Pointe, Michigan, via Wood Motors of Detroit. Mr. Lee immediately handed his new Allard over to Cal Connell of the legendary shop Detroit Racing Equipment where it received its race-prepped Cadillac engine. Marvelous period color photographs show the car finished in dark metallic blue with a red interior, a single side-mount spare, and distinct polished alloy Borrani wire wheels.
