The fact that Sydney Allard won the 1952 Monte Carlo rally outright in 1952 in a P1 saloon, similar to this car, tells you straight away how advanced this car was at the time of production.

Introduced in '48, the P1 employed Allard's trademark independently suspended ' split' front axle and a transverse leaf spring rear suspension. Like nearly all production Allards, the P1 used Ford/Mercury engines as they were readily available from Ford in the UK, the choice being the 3622cc Ford V8 'Flathead' or the modified 4375cc Mercury, with a 3 speed manual gearbox in both cases. Produced until 1952 a total of just 559 P1's were ever made world wide.

This barn find 1951 P1 3.6 litre Ford 'Flathead' saloon with floor mounted 3 speed gearbox was supplied new to a Mr. Pollard of Thirsk and was subsequently sold to it's second owner, Mr. James Whittle of Market Drayton in 1987, who used it consistently up until 1994. Then sold on, the car remained with the third owner until 2011 when it was purchased from Bonhams at a mileage of just 45,954. This mileage is believed genuine and is confirmed by most previous M.O.T's which are present in the history file.

A sound and useable car, it benefits from being highly original having never been restored. The chassis is in very good condition and the bodywork is fair for it's age - although in need of some repairs and a re-paint.

The interior is very original and well patinated, if a little scruffy. The engine is extremely smooth and there are no noises from the transmission.

Original owners manual and sale brochure.

A sound basis for restoration.
