"The car was recently reviewed by the owner, and no immediate repairs are required in order to drive this summer. A nice model with a big engine and a five-gear transmission."


This car was purchased new in Ljungby by a lady who drove it until 1998. She had then decided that her niece would be allowed to take over the car, and she had it repainted and welded on the underbody so that it would be in good shape.
Her niece drove it carefully until she hit a deer, The car only received minor damage to the hood and front end, but it was left standing until the current owner took over in 2017. He's fixed the damage, serviced, and inspected the car, so it's ready to go.

Facts about the model

Allegro är ju en musikterm som anger att något ska spelas lite hastigare och med glad känsla. Föregångaren, Austin/Morris/MG/VandenPlas 1100 och 1300 hade ritats av ”Hundkojans” skapare, Sir Alec Issigonis och blev en omedelbar succé vid debuten 1962. Bilarna hade en skenbart enkel och tilltalande funkisdesign som prioriterade rymlighet i kompakta mått, precis som Hundkojan.

Allegros design togs fram av Harris Mann, som tidigare varit hos Ford och svarat för den första Escort och den första Capri i slutet av 1960-talet.

Hans ursprungliga Allegro såg rejält annorlunda och mycket mer radikal ut än den färdiga produkten. Mann hade inte så mycket till övers för den fyrkantigt nya stil som kommit på bland andra VW Golf, utan ville ha en lätt kilformad profil på den nya Austin och – givetvis – halvkombilucka bak.

Han tänkte sig liknande drag också för den större modell som var i görningen, bilen som döptes till Austin Princess vid debuten några år senare.

  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends.
