Allard Motor Company Racing
The legendary J2X was a limited production competition roadster. Even though only 83 were produced between 1951 and 1954, these were the most successful racers of the Allard collection. Although the Allard Motor Company never produced its own engines, it successfully integrated existing American V-8 power plants into its cars to threaten the dominance of racing circuits by larger producers. Factory Allard J2Xs were usually equipped with a Ford-Mercury flathead (or even exported without an engine), but it was the 331 cu. in. Cadillac and the Chrysler 331 Hemi Firepower that made its exploits legendary. At the rear, the J2X's sported a deDion differential.

The Allard's racing notoriety came at the hands of individuals who are now legends in their own rights - Sydney Allard, Zora Arkus Duntov (Corvette pioneer), General Curtis LeMay (a commander of the Strategic Air Command), Carroll Shelby (entire 1953 season), Masten Gregory, as well as movie star, Steve McQueen.
