In 1952 Allard gave its popular sports model a new look. The new K3 looked very modern in contrast to the skimpy J1 and K1 models that preceded it. The K3 had coil-spring front suspension and either 3.6 or 4.4 litre V8 engines, some USA cars even had a Cadillac engine as this was considered more prestigious.
The body of the K3 was all new. The side rails were built up from a pair of vertically
stacked chromoly tubes, welded and reinforced with steel plates. Giving a 100-in. wheelbase, this chassis was lighter and stronger than previous Allards. The K3 was a more serious touring car, with an aluminum envelope body, rather than separate clamshell fenders.
