It's an early Cadillac- not sure exactly what year it is supposed to represent, but the first-gen postwar Cadillac OHV V8 was made from 1949 to 1962.

for anyone not familiar with the carbs on the Allard, those are 2 Rochester 2bbl carbs, very common on GM cars/trucks from the 50's thru the late 70's

the red one's out of a boat, they used these beast in just about anything you can think of.

It's a Caddy, like the others have said, I believe it's meant to represent the late '50's factory tri-power setup (3 2bbl Rochesters), at least that's what it looks like to me. Track down a Revell Parts Pack Caddy and you've got some cooler (IMHO) valve covers and more intake options.

"Laid-over" Strombergs from 53 Studebakers. Carter made a very similar laid-over carb for the 50 Olds as a replacement for the Rochester AA. If I didn't recognize the 1:1 this pic comes from I would have said they're Carters.

Excellent advice. Lots cheap on repay. Mis-labeled as a 354 though.
