There have been a number of books on AC – one of Britain’s oldest and most respected car makers – but this is the first to concentrate on the Two-litre Saloon and the coachbuilt Tourer which shared the chassis and 6-cylinder engine, the Buckland Sports. An absolutely invaluable companion for owners of these cars and fascinating for all AC enthusiasts, this book tells the story of development, production and motorsport. It also contains much sage advice on ownership and maintenance, and even tips on performance tuning the classic AC two-litre engine. Appendices detail major specification changes and feature a complete record of every chassis, including year of registration, body colours, chassis and engine numbers. The story of these cars is illustrated by an extraordinary collection of images, many very rare, and including unique original concept/design illustrations for the Two-litre Saloon.
