|Daniel Rapley's Mystery
From Daniel: "I recently purchased
an Allard J2. It is a car that I would like to find some more information
"She’s been unloved
for a while, but there’s a lot of good here."
"In 1974 it was sold by Gran Turosmo
Automotive Enterprises, Greenvale, Long Island, NY. We currently
have no history previous to that.
It looks to have been Red, then painted
medium Green. LHD, Steel wheels. There are remnants of an old SCCA inspection
sticker on one of the few interior panels we have. The car has old Firestone
racing tires. The steering wheel is burnt and the story that came with
the car is that it was in a fire and the body so badly damaged that it
was removed and tossed."
|"LHD, Red, then Green,
Long Island, NY, SCCA racing. May have been in a fire.
Being that it was medium green it hopefully will be remembered, especially
if the fire took hold at the track."
More Photos can be seen HERE.
If you can help Daniel with info on his
Allard: Please email
|(5-30-12) From "cccamp57592":
"This may be totally irrelevant, but
a man named John Negley Jr. from New Cumberland, MD, raced a red, Chrysler-powered
J2 in 1952 and 1953 at numerous events. He was killed in October 1953 in
practice at Turner AFB. The only reason I mention this is that I
believe his Allard, at least in 1952, was red."
