1975 Austin Allegro Vanden Plas 1500 for auction June 17th SOLD by Auction

1975 Austin Allegro Vanden Plas 1500
Reg. no. KEU 832P
Chassis no. VF4SJ-213651A
Engine no. t.b.a.
Launched in 1973 to replace the successful 1100 and 1300 cars, the Austin Allegro was introduced at a difficult time for British Leyland; an unhappy workforce and financial troubles meant that cars all across the range were not built as well as they could have been. As a result some BL cars of the time did not fulfil their potential, the Allegro being a prime example. Its advanced suspension gave a superb ride, and performance was surprisingly good, especially in 'Equipe' trim. And then there was the Vanden Plas Allegro, a peculiarly British idea. A chromed radiator grille was placed on the front, leather or velour seats were installed, and wood was to be found on the inside, there were even walnut picnic tables in the back!
This Vanden Plas 1500 model, with just one previous owner, was last on the road in 1998, and as such is in need of some restoration. It appears to be a complete and original car and we are told that prior to the period of storage, the engine was running well. There is no V5c but our vendor tells us that it is on the DVLA computer and if applied for, it should be available. There is the passport to service booklet, showing the original dealers stamp Clist & Rattle Ltd, Flax Bourton, dated 30th September 1975 and the cars first owner G.A. Thomas of Nailsea is noted. There is also a collection of old tax discs, the original driver's handbook and the chassis plate.

This and 90 other classic cars will be offered for auction on June 17th at Allington, near Chippenham, Wiltshire SN14 6LJ
