The owner of this car purchased it in the 1980s and had a friend repaint it in acrylic lacquer. The paint job is still holding up today. Much of the interior is original. The owner had approached Bill Hahn in the mid-90’s asking why he couldn’t seem to win any awards. After opening the hood, Bill told him everything under the hood was the reason why he wasn’t winning any car shows. All the front end sheet metal was removed. The firewall repainted was as well as the frame and all inner sheet metal. The engine was rebuilt, as well as all steering and suspension components. All restoration work was done to a headmark correct standards. Immediately after picking up his car, he started winning awards and trophies. This ‘55 Chevy is an AACA Senior Grand National winner.

1950 Allard J-2

1950 Allard J-2

This beautiful 1950 Allard initially came to us for some cosmetic updates to the nose section. We moved the parking lights out to the tips of the fenders and added the traditional Allard “scallops” to the nose area. After reviewing the rest of the paint on the car, we determined that the filler in some previous repair areas was too thick and was cracking, so we did a complete strip and repaint of the body. We also ordered up a new set of wire wheels painted to match the interior color. We think the color combination sets the car off. Powered by a 331 Cu. In. Cadillac V-8 and equipped with a pair of two-barrel carburetors, the car is both fast & loud….just the way we like it!
