AC 2-Litre DHC/Buckland (1949-1956) specifications

AC 2-Litre DHC/Buckland (1949-1956) specifications Classic and Performance Car

These rare convertible versions of the AC 2-Litre can be difficult to find, but are still good value


Straightforward drophead version of the saloon was only in production a year, so few were built and all went for export – though most were still right-hand drive. You are more likely to come across one of the Buckland tourers, whose bodies were built by a coachbuilder of that name. These were a lot prettier, with more rounded lines and a fold-flat windscreen. Later examples also got cutaway doors for an even more sporting look, though mechanically they were identical to the saloons. Quite hard to find, but not usually that expensive when you do.
