Allard, better known for light sports cars produced a pilot run of around twenty glass-fibre bodied three-wheeled Clipper microcars in 1953-1954. They had a rear mounted Villiers 24B 346cc single-cylinder two-stroke motorbike engine driving the rear left wheel via a Burman gearbox and chain.

The car was designed by David Gottlieb and was advertised as having an 'indestructible' plastic body made by Hordern-Richmond Ltd. It was the first ever car to have a plastic body and seated three adults on a bench seat and two children in optional 'dickey seats' revealed when the rear boot was opened.

Cooling difficulties and driveshaft weakness made the Clipper very unreliable and the project was not continued - as of 2001 there were only three survivors.
