AC's first post-war creation brought in the mildly sporting 2-Litre
After WW2 ended, AC resumed the building of low-volume quality cars with this gently sporting 2.0-litre saloon. A four-door was added to the range for 1953, by which time the already ageing triple-carb AC engine’s output had risen from 74bhp to 85bhp. Bodies are aluminium over a wood frame and steel chassis; suspension also harks back to days past with solid axles and transverse leaf springs at each end of the car. At least the dampers are hydraulic: an AC first. Cable rear brakes are fitted to early cars, with an all-hydraulic system from 1951.
