Allard was the first guy to successfully marry the mighty American V8 with the refined and advanced European racing chassis that people needed to win races in the 1950s and early 1960s. His Allard J2 roadsters and racing cars were popular in America and they were built with any number of different engines from Cadillacs to Chrysler hemi examples as well.
