SOLD 1979 Austin Allegro 1100 Deluxe. Russett Brown. Only 44k and 2 owners from new. Very rare.


We are very pleased to offer a wonderful slice of the 1970s in the form a very rare Austin Allegro Deluxe. Finished in what is one of the best period colours of Russett brown with a contrasting Tan interior. If your after an entry level Classic car that is rarer most Ferraris and cooler than a Cucumber then you may have just found your car. This example has had only two previous owners in 40 years and spent a long time in dry storage hence its amazing preserved condition. It is also accomapanied with a large and comprehensive service history folder and has covered an amazing 44k in that time. Its key to its condition is that it received Ziebart rust prevention treatment from new and still wears its sticker in the back window. Consequently this Allegro is very solid with all its original panels, correct panel gaps and body coloured floor pans. It still has its original dealer sticker in the window and has been a local car all its life.
On the road is where the fun the starts. The 1100 A series engine is super smooth and very willing coupled to a precise gearbox. Its such an easy to car to drive and still feels new and taught. The ride is sublime with the famous BL Hydragas suspension and it puts modern cars to shame for comfort. Please also get used to the amazing amount of attention you are going to receive. Wherever I take this car people want to talk about it and admire its condition, it regularly gets photographed whenever its parked, after all, these cars are just not seen on the road anymore, especially in this factory spec.

The interior is also very well preserved and has its original carpets, unmarked dash and immaculate roof lining. All of the switch gear works and this model has yet to have a radio fitted! It really does fell like stepping back in time.

As mentioned the Allegro was Ziebart treated from new and as such is very solid and appears to have all its original panels and floor pans. The paintwork is gleaming and it belies its 40 year vintage. It could quite easily sit on any display stand or just make you smile out on the open road and make a wonderful Classic car at the same time. This Allegro is fully serviced, has a current MOT and benefits from many new parts and as from this May this year is MOT and Tax exempt.
