WTF a decked Allegro

5 posts in this topic

Was so shocked I got the wife to take a picture of this Allegro estate. It was decked to the floor and sounded like it had a V8 installed in the back.

The suspension will have just collapsed...

Surely if you were going to "deck" an Allegro you would do it to the Vanden Plas :roflmao:

It looks as though it's actually a Beetle based on the MOT History.

"Here we have a 1980 Austin Allegro 4 door bodyshell, profesionally restored to a high standard, no rust. Any rusted or damaged areas have been cut out and replaced with new metal, not filler. It has the Vanden Plas dashboard and door cards, MG ZR seats and new carpet and headlining. There is an essential metal firewall welded in place behind the rear seat making the seat useable but mainly for show.

This body has then been mounted on a Volswagen Beetle, 1984 Mexican import floorpan. complete with the VW steering, suspension engine and drivetrain. The car is registered as a VW Beetle 1200. This is all legal as the floorpan has not been altered and the body is mounted to the original beetle mounting points. The car has disc brakes on the front and adjustable coilovers on the rear. What you see in the photos is its normal running height. The engine has been upgraded with 1650 twin port pots and twin carbs. There is an electric convector heater fitted inside the allegro heater box, which works as good as the vw system and no risk of gassing yourself. Spare wheel and fuel tank under the bonnet.

MOT until May 2018. All serious questions will be answered, the reserve is a 4 figure one. No buy it now

If you own this, be prepared for lots of attention and questions everywhere you go.

Drives, handles and sounds like a Beetle---Looks like an Allegro"

Although it takes a lot to beat an Allegro on a Suzuki Vitara chassis:

These people need professional help. 

I think a fast lead suppository would work best....
