Sold for £13,500
(including buyers premium)
Registration No: YU6357
Chassis No: 14223
This delightful example of the AC model made famous by The Hon. Victor Bruce’s win in the 1926 Monte Carlo Rally is finished in the striking combination of Brown over Cream and trimmed in quality Brown leather, and has remained within its current ownership for the last 22 years. Clearly the subject of a previous restoration, ‘YU 6357’ is presently considered by the vendor to have ‘good’ bodywork, paintwork, upholstery, 2-litre six-cylinder engine and manual transmission. Equipped with an electric fan in deference to modern motoring, it also boasts a fully working hood, dickie seat, pair of wing-mounted spare wheels, and rear luggage rack. This rare AC Tourer is now being offered complete various relevant diagrams, owner’s instruction manual, and collection of invoices and old MOT certificates. Arguably best known as the maker of the Carroll Shelby-inspired Cobra, AC’s back catalogue includes such diverse products as golf trolleys, invalid carriages and the train for Southend pier.
PLEASE NOTE: The year of this lot is 1927 and not 1926 as previously stated
