20 zbudowanych Clipperów to w zasadzie tylko seria informacyjna. Problemy z chłodzeniem silnika i przeniesieniem napędu spowodowały zaprzestanie dalszych prac nad mikrosamochodami.

Allard Safari estate car is mechanically similar to the contemporary Allard P2 Monte Carlo saloon (so named to commemorate Sydney Allard's outright victory in the 1952 Monte Carlo Rally). Both have a Ford V8 engine as standard but other more powerful-engines could be fitted at extra cost. The Safari have three bench seats, the rearmost facing backwards, and, at 16 ft 6 in, is 6 in longer than the saloon. In October 1955 both models were listed at £2525 12s 6d.
