This is one of those cool cars we just have to blog about and share with the world. This time it’s a 1950 Allard K2 that was delivered brand-new to Moss Motors at 3200 West Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles CA. We have invoices and shipping records that show it was sold new to Al Moss, and sold by him to a Dr. Henry M. Ure of Manhattan Beach, CA. These are very rare cars with just 119 built, and to have one in our shop is truly amazing. This car was delivered sans engine and gearbox but was modified to fit a Mercury flat-head V8 engine. The car currently has a Cadillac V8 overhead-valve engine fitted with automatic gearbox, which was very common for these cars.
As you’ll see in the photos, this car is in unrestored condition and is an amazing find that has lived here in California for its whole life. We have the car here in our shop for a few repairs and then we will be getting it ready for sale. These are very unusual British cars, but they are very cool and a lot of fun to drive. American power and a light alloy body make for a great combination.
