    Sure looks nice but starting at $10k.  I was unaware (but not surprised) that there was a diesel TD.  I am surprised that it only gets 25mpg.

    Was the Allison available based on a Chevette donor? One of the engines available in the Chevette was an infamously bad diesel. This may be that diesel and that would explain the 25mpg.

     I was under the impression that all Allison  front engined cars were based on a Nissian. I’ve never heard of a diesel version till now. It’s a really nice car but that’s a nice, I mean high ,  starting point too.

    Can’t imagine why anyone would build it diesel. Maybe a TDI VW or Mercedes… but a Chevette? An ’80s US diesel car? Everyone knew those were junk even back in the day. They were junk compared even to the incredibly junky junk that normal gas powered cars were then!

    God, what an awful automotive time it was.

    Hey, maybe a Chevette diesel was his driver and just swapped everything over. Nobody ever said any of us were smart.

     My information is that all Allisons were built and sold as completed cars. Perhaps this one was built to fill someones specific request. As to why ,we may never know.
