Most of the cars that catch my eye are to help a friend find a fun to drive, reliable daily driver. This time I didn’t quite accomplish that, but this is a cool car and it’s just up the street from Cincinnati in Dayton Ohio.
This 1954 Allard K3 roadster is said to be one of just 62 produced between 1952 and 1956, of which 57 made it to this side of the pond. British built and engineered with factory Cadillac or Chrysler hemi V8 power, these cars can be considered Proto-Cobras, leading the way for that and similar Anglo-American machines like the Tiger. Cosmetically restored and mechanically sorted, this 331 Caddy-powered car is said to be fast, welcome at numerous vintage events, and registered in the Allard registry. Find it here on Jalopy Journal in Dayton, Ohio for $125k.
