I was going through an old old family picture album and ran across a picture of my Grand-Dad with his new Allen automobile.  I understand the picture and why my Grand-Dad owned an Allen as my Great-Grand-Dad sold Allen automobiles.  Does anyone here know of an Allen that may be available for purchase?  I could be interested.  Drop me a note.

Does a 1914 or 1015 Allen exist in the circles of the AACA?

You could call the national AACA office in Hershey, Pa.

They might be able to search (via computer) our club's

records, finding any Allens among car makes from past

award winners.  If any records are recent enough,

then contacting any Allen owner might lead you to 

other Allen owners.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allen_(1913_Ohio_automobile)

The Allen was an American automobile, built at Fostoria, Ohio between 1913 and 1921. The company used 3.1-litre side-valve Sommers four-cylinder engines, and acquired that company in 1915. The 1920 Allen 43 was a handsome craft, featuring bevel-sided touring coachwork and a high-shouldered radiator. Unfortunately, sales of this vehicle were not enough to avert the company's bankruptcy, which followed in 1921. Willys acquired what little was left.[1] Overall, 20,00 vehicles were sold.

Hello alsfarm.  There are 2 Allen Motor Cars for sale.  A 1917 Model #37 touring and a 1921 Model #41 touring.  I believe there are only a dozen Allen Cars in known existence.   2 Allen's in museums, 1918 Allen in Fostoria Ohio at the Historical Society.  Also a 1919 just North of Traverse City, MI.
