Allard poszedł w ślady swego konkurenta - AC i zaprezentował własny trójkołowiec ze zgrabnym, sportowym nadwoziem mieszczącym 2-3 osoby lub 2 osoby dorosłe i 2 dzieci. Napędza go dwusuwowy silnik Villers o pojemności 346 cm³ i mocy 8 KM. Jest nieco droższy od AC - kosztuje 267 funtów.

Allard Palm Beach Tourer, an Open three-seater sports model available with either a Ford Consul 1508-cc Four (Type 21 C) or a Ford Zephyr 2622-cc Six (Type 21 Z) power unit. Fitted with fully-enveloping bodywork, this model is something entirely new for the Allard company which had, since its inception, favoured powerful V8 engines for their high-performance cars. Wheelbase is 96 in and weight (dry) is 1800 lb (21 C) or 1900 lb (21 Z). Allard K3 Tourer is fitted with Ford V8 3622-cc 95-bhp power unit as standard, but also available with Lincoln, Cadillac or Chrysler V8 engine at customers' request. This full-width bodied grand tourer was launched-mainly for export-in October 1952, replacing the 1950-52 Model K2.
