FOR SALE
Quite possibly the best unrestored Austin Allegro 1100 DeLuxe with 10,190 miles.

EQUIPMENT
All steel unitary construction, underbody protection, recessed door-handles, anti-burst locks, safety steering column, Hydragas suspension, laminated windscreen, electric washers, two-speed wipers, flick wipe, exterior door mirror, hazard warning lights, child safety catches on rear doors, fresh-flow ventilation, heated rear window, Quartic steering wheel. Factory options; Brake servo. Dealer accessories; Mud flaps, Radiomobile.

EXTERIOR
Finished in the extremely rare factory original colour of Mirage, (Code BLVC11), this amazing Series One Allegro has been preserved incredibly well, owing to the remarkable low mileage of 10,190 under truly cherished ownership. The factory paint finish displays only minor age related markings and the chrome bumpers display very light pitting, utterly inoffensive and left untreated so as to uphold originality. Factory wax is visible in door apertures and on the clean underside which is free from excess rust proofing to allow easy inspection. Features unique to the early Series One cars remain correct such as the external bonnet release and the C-Pillar vents screwed from the inside as opposed external screws on later cars. Remarkable originality can be seen in the form of supplying dealer number plates, rear screen sticker and tax disc holder. The original Allegro bonnet and boot badges are fitted as well as the iconic British Leyland emblem fitted to the nearside wing only, just as they were made. This humble DeLuxe model was the entry level Allegro, and as such had no coachline, a feature which is upheld. An almost inconceivable rare survivor against unfavourable odds, very special.

INTERIOR
The spacious interior of this Allegro is completely original and in perfect preserved condition. The Knit-backed vinyl seat upholstery in Spanish Rose is essentially as new, as are the matching partial door cards and rubber floor coverings, again unique to the Deluxe model. Still fitted is the famous Quartic steering wheel, arguably the most iconic feature of the Allegro to allow ease of access and a better view of the instruments. Widely ridiculed as a concept, the Quartic wheel was phased out in 1974. A reflection of British Leyland quality control can be witnessed with factory glue marks on the headlining and even the chalk line to mark out siting of the instrument binnacle! Incredibly, a factory build tag is still attached inside the boot. Complete with the 1970’s British Leyland smell, this interior is astonishing.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The legendary and time proven A-Series engine of 1098cc displacement is robust, simple and has excellent parts availability. Producing an ample 49bhp and 59lb/ft of torque, this Allegro can hold its own in modern traffic. The engine is wonderfully quiet and whilst the clean engine bay shows natural aging, it is completely original and features factory plates and stickers. Even the Hydragas suspension sticker on the sphere remains intact! The four speed hydraulically operated all synchromesh gearbox delivers light and exact changes complete with the instantly recognisable first gear whine!

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Original pressed steel disc wheels with chrome hub caps are immaculate and shod in quality matching Pirelli P3000 tyres with excellent tread remaining. The well maintained Hydrogas suspension system is free from leaks and allows the car to sit level and correct, and more importantly ride as it should. The hydraulic brake system with 9.68in front discs and factory optional servo bring the car up safe and steady.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied by Austin Main Dealer, Peter O’Gorman in Essex, this 1973 built 1100 DeLuxe was registered new on the 21st February 1974. A new car retail order form made out to first owner, Miss Joan Earl, confirms a purchase price of £1,100.00 including £11.75 for brake servo, a factory option! A well-known example within the Allegro Owners Club with plenty of stand appearances, including the NEC Classic Car Show, this delightful car nicknamed ‘Violet’ is used to the limelight. ‘Violet’ has been awarded Best Series One Allegro at every Allegro Club International event it has attended! With just three former keepers, the previous of five years being Mr Ian Cole who has been a member of the Allegro Club International for 23 years, and has held in this period positions of Chairman, Director and Membership Secretary.

The superb history file contains the original orange Passport to Service and Allegro handbook, as well as a 1974 Austin Allegro range sales brochure. A large history folder is beautifully presented and contains a substantial collection of MOT certificates throughout the cars entire lifetime and maintenance invoices to fully verify the low mileage of 10,190 miles. Furthermore, a record of TV appearances on three separate programmes is included! The original key set remains including the ignition key with very rare eyelet hole to delight the Allegro aficionado. An unrepeatable opportunity to buy surely one of the best unrestored examples of British Leyland motoring history.

MOT March 2018, HPI clear.
