A 1974 Austin Allegro Super with just 4111 miles on the clock has appeared for sale at an MG dealership in Northern Ireland.
Offered for sale by SS Logan and Son Limted of Newtonabbey, Co. Antrim, the 1974 Series 1 Super is finished in period Blaze Orange, with black vinyl interior and the Allegro’s celebrated ‘Quartic’ square steering wheel.
As Allegros go, then, it’s pretty much the pinnacle of kitsch – square wheel, miserly spec and lurid colour.
According to the vendor, the car has been in storage for the past 25 years and has only recently resurfaced. It comes with a full 12-month MoT valid until June 2016.
The car is almost impossible to value, so is being offered initially on eBay without reserve and where, at the time of writing, it is up to £1,900 – though, given recent trends in valuations for low mileage ‘timewarp’ cars of this era, we’d expect it to end up higher than that.
Serious bidders have until Friday – view it here, or contact the seller directly on 02890 862039.
