    Loading the Allard onto trailer :- This is our Allard M Type 1949 as bought. It was stored in Avebury and is being loaded onto a trailer in December 2009 hence the snow on the ground, the journey starts.

    Engine out :- Taking the engine out for the final time, this was August 2010. The wood work that you can see was put on and off many times together with the engine, hopefully to get things right.

    The French Flathead :- It is now August 2011 and this is a picture of a French Flathead. This engine will be converted to a car specification the same as a Ford Mercury at 4.3ltr and retain the Allard 9″ clutch. The original French Flathead clutch was an 11″ because this engine was used in a truck.

    The French Flathead in chassis :- Feb 2012 Work on the French Flathead had been completed and it was time for it to go in the chassis together with a rebuilt gearbox, steady as you go.
