      Great looking car. Now we need a photo from front / left and a brief spec

      I’d love to see more pictures of this too, especially ones of the build process since I’m about to embark on such a journey.

      Ben: l do have pics of Roger Daniels building up my Special in the v. early 90s. I’ll try and pick some out which show how it took shape. Then, in 2012, Roger Murray-Evans took it all apart and built it into roadworthy condition for the owner previous to me. He sent me photos which l’ll also sift thru.

      Anyway, re. spec., my Special has indeterminate provenance but has P-type front axle/suspension and nosecone and what appears to be a ‘top-hat’ front x-member. In fact, apart from the alloy body, almost everything is ‘Allard’. Rear x-member has been moved back and the chassis shortened to a 100″ wheelbase. Robert R-C, owner of KLD 5, has said that the rear (Columbia Skydrive) axle is from a derelict J1. It has a stock 3.6L Ford Pilot engine (single carb) and 3-speed gearbox, phase 2 brakes, and mostly Allard dashboard instruments. A huge Allard fuel tank. The ‘early’ radiator l have had recored with more tubes. Custom exhaust. I’ve fitted a 100A alternator and an electric ‘puller’ fan (retaining all original parts for keeping with the car). David Cornwallis has rebuilt the steering box so that it now feels as good as rack & pinion. The car weighs 19cwt.

      I’ve gone on for too long😆.

      Tim.
