A.C. has a long tradition of building sporting motorcars, dating back to the early 1920s. The company’s roots go back to 1908 as Auto Carriers, where they produced motorized vehicles for tradesmen and delivery purposes. In 1921, new management arrived and A.C. Cars Ltd was founded, with great emphasis put on racing and record breaking in order to build the brand. Success came quickly with the first British victory in the 1926 Monte Carlo rally. Production of various sporting saloons and touring cars trickled on through WWII, when the works produced a variety of wartime products, making a very handy profit along the way. In the early 1950s, with saloon sales dwindling, A.C.’s owners decided a new direction was needed. They partnered with a young designer named John Tojeiro who was making a name for himself in sports car racing with his tubular framed, alloy skinned race cars. Tojeiro was brought on board to design a new sports car that utilized A.C.’s own inline six, as well as the Bristol-sourced 2.0 liter inline six. The Ace roadster was first shown at the 1953 Earls Court Motor Show with production versions arriving one year later. In 1955 the pretty Ace roadster was joined by the two-seat fixed-head Aceca coupe. The beautiful coupe, like the roadster, could be optioned with either the AC or Bristol engine and it proved a worthy competitor in amateur GT racing. Production of the Aceca was very low, however, with just 349 built over a nine-year period before A.C. shifted focus to their most famous car to date, the sensational Cobra. This striking AC Aceca coupe is one of just 48 built in 1959 and is one of just a handful originally equipped with the A.C. inline-six cylinder engine. It is a handsome car that has been carefully prepared for event use, while still remaining in beautiful show-worthy condition and entirely streetable. The paintwork pays homage to the famous Ecurie Ecosse team livery, with its rich blue accented by a white band around the bonnet and white roundels on the doors. Paint quality is excellent, particularly for a rally car, and the detailing is outstanding. Brightwork is limited to bumpererettes, window trim and lamps, all of which appears in very good order. The car sits purposefully on a set of wide-rim 72 spoke wire wheels, painted in dark gray as would be appropriate for a racing car of the period. Proper black wall tires give the right look and allow the brilliant handling of the Tojeiro chassis to shine through. Side exiting exhaust and a huge, polished Monza-style fuel filler completes the look. The cabin follows closely with original, having been restored to a high standard while incorporating the necessary safety features for serious rallying. Safety enhancements include a subtly integrated roll cage with side-entry bars, period seats with four-point harnesses, on board fire suppression system and regulation exterior electrical shut-offs. All of the modifications have been done with a subtle, period correct feel that does not detract from the appealing beauty of the Aceca. The seats are trimmed in red leather and red panels line the interior and cargo hatch. Carpeting is limited to the central tunnel, with bare alloy floors lending a purposeful feel. A beautiful three spoke wood wheel faces original instruments, and a series of additional dials keeping watch on all vital functions. As with the exterior, the interior is purposeful, beautifully crafted and ready for sporting duty. A.C.s inline six may date back to the 1920s, but it was a remarkably versatile engine that produced over 100 horsepower in standard trim by 1959, and remained in production until 1963. This example has been carefully uprated for rally duty with a trio of big S.U. carburetors outfitted with velocity stacks along with an alloy radiator, electric fans, an alternator, and gorgeous custom tuned exhaust headers. Performance is outstanding and the engine sounds positively glorious breathing through those big carbs and the raspy exhaust. Not only is this a proven and exceptional event car, having competed at the 2015 Copperstate 1000, (among other events) it has also been shown at prestigious concours such as the Concours d’Elegance of America at St. John’s. This rare and beautifully restored A.C. Aceca is a magnificent all-rounder that is ready for enjoyment.

Lowered price from €38.500 -> €33.500 The AC 2-Litre was produced between 1947 and 1956. Two and, from 1952, four-door saloons were sold. In addition, as from 1949, a small number of drophead coupés and "Buckland" tourers were produced. The car's wetliner, aluminium cylinder block, six-cylinder 1991 cc engine was the unit first offered by the company in the AC 16, back in 1922. However, by 1947 the engine was fed by three SU carburettors and boasted a power output of 74 bhp (55.2 kW), increased again in 1951 to 85 bhp (63.4 kW) which was more than twice the 35 bhp (26.1 kW) claimed for engine's original commercial application. The aluminium-panelled body on a wood frame was fitted to a conventional steel chassis with rigid axles front and rear with semi-elliptic leaf springs with, for the first time on an AC, hydraulic dampers. Until 1951 the car had a hybrid braking system, hydraulic at the front and cable at the rear with 12 in (305 mm) drums. The car changed very little during its ten-year production run, though the wheel size did increase slightly to 16 in (406 mm) in 1951. The AC 2-litre was outlived by its engine, which Specifications >>>>> Oldtimerfarm is going to renovate!

The AC Cobra is without any doubt the most sought after classic super Sportscar. The combination of a beautifully designed tubular chassis by Tojeiro, an ultra-light aluminium Italian Barchetta style body and Carroll Shelby’s genius idea to shoe-horn into the chassis the very strong and reliable Ford V8 small block engine was the initial recipe. From the original versions (MKI MKII and MKIII), built between 1962 and 1967, only approximately 1,000 were produced, but fetch today on the collectors car market astronomical prices !Petrol crises and world events sadly led to the bankruptcy of AC in the late seventies. The company’s tooling and eventually the right to use the name, were acquired by Autokraft, a Cobra specialist and car manufacturer owned by Brian A. Angliss. In agreement with Carroll Shelby and the Ford Motor Company, the last version MKIII car, of which only 327 were produced in the sixties, would appear again in 1982 with some modifications as the Autokraft MKIV, in essence an AC MKIII car with a 5.0L V8 and a Borg Warner T5 Transmission.These MKIV AC Cobra's must not be confused with any of the replica Cobra's out there. They are built to the very highest standards and are totally authentic, hand made, aluminium bodied cars built on the original bucks etc from AC Cars in the seventies. The engines were sourced from Ford USA and indeed the Ford Motor Company went into business with Brian Anglis, Autokraft, to collaborate in the production. This stunning example is finished in Raven Black with Black alloy wheels, chrome bumpers and a Tobacco leather interior. Purists will be quick to note that the interior is noticeably more luxurious than that of an early Shelby Cobra, benefitting from a stereo system with a CD player, leather trim, and seats with headrests. The car is fitted with Ford’s tried-and-true 225-brake horsepower, 5.0-litre engine with EFI, which is mated to a five-speed manual transmission.As the Mk IV offers a handful of welcome updates over the original Shelby Cobras, it makes for a wonderful driver’s car, providing ample amounts of both power and additional comfort. These cars are seldom seen in Europe, and this example would be the perfect stablemate to an original 289 or 427, or it can also be driven and enjoyed with ease and reliability. As it bears the AC name and was produced using many of the same tools and techniques as the originals, the Mk IV represents an interesting period in Shelby and AC history, and this extremely fine example would make for an excellent wind in the hair, long distance sports tourer.Available for viewing in our Kew showrooms.
