I think I have said all I need to say about the background of AC cars in the text describing the other two AC 2 Litre models I have for sale which you can see on this website . Suffice to say this car, on chassis L539 with engine UMB493, is another fine example from their small and fairly exclusive range of fast sports and touring cars, this time fitted with AC's own stylish and practical four seat drop head coupe coachwork. As well as being good to look at these ACs are very nice to drive plus they have the added atraction of a degree of rarity so you are not likely to see one at every car show or rally you attend. This car appears to have been in continous use and has been well maintained rather than been completely dismantled and restored though its hood has been replaced which is not a bad thing given our changeable weather! The body has been repainted, the brightwork has been rechromed and it has recently had work done on the engine though there is room for more mechanical improvement which is reflected in the price of the car. To many collectors a car in this nicely patinated state is more desirable than one in total show condition which you have to worry about cleaning underneath every time you take it out! Whilst I think you should buy an old car primarily because you want one and not just bacause it may be an investment, in my opinion these hand built AC cars are currently undervalued in the market. In build quality, style and performance they compare favourably with other contemporary cars which have now become much more expensive (Alvis for example) so they have room to catch up which must make them a good buy.
