I believe it's an Allard J2X Le Mans, 1952

(Does it have the Chrysler hemi in it)?

As to the number, no idea.

Send that to capics@totalsportscar.com, that is a contender for the calender.

The Allards ran 5.4 Cadillac V8s, Sydney came 3rd in a J2 in 1950, but thats looks like a Bristol from a few years later.  2 litre class winner

Whoops, had to look it up, as the numbers started with the biggest engine, so that must be something with the sixth biggest engine, so the Allard J2X must have had the same coachbuilder as Bristol in 1954

And the following year, Hawthorn & Bueb won in No 6

Great - you are all correct.

The link is rather tenuous, but the car was driven by Allard himself in 1952. In 1953, the car Allard was driving was retired on lap FOUR.

THE CAR IS FOR SALE - SEE HERE

I'm too young to remember the J2X, but I was at an event about 8 years ago, where there were 4 or 5 J2s.  I'd never seen them in the flesh before.  A sort of posh Lotus 7 with a V8 - wonderful.  One had a larger lump, exhausts hanging out each side and the radiator in the boot.  I'm told it was all period, and the guy had done the work in the fifties.

This is all I can find - the name sounds familiar, but it looks too modern
