1953 AC Buckland

AC Cars. which eventually built the chassis and body for the Shelby Cobra. was started in the dawn of the automobile era as a builder of three-wheel delivery vehicles under the name "Autocarrier". The company's first venture into passenger vehicles were two-seat trikes like the Sociable with the tiller-steering driver and a passenger sitting between the front wheels ahead of a one-cylinder air cooled engine and single chain-driven rear wheel. In 1922 AC debuted its own inline 6-cylinder single overhead camshaft engine. the engine. much developed. that powers this 1953 AC 4-seat tourer with coachwork by Buckland. The triple SU carburetor 1. 91cc AC six delivered 76 horsepower through a 4-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the upper three gears. Significantly. this is a lefthand drive example. finished in Ivory with red upholstery that has been replaced on the front seats but remains original in the rear. Red centerlock wire wheels. a four-spoke banjo steering wheel. folding windshield and driving lights attest to its sporting character. as does the long. low 4-seat coachwork with integrated fenders by Buckland. It has its original side curtains and top frame. Never restored. this 1953 AC Buckland 4-seat tourer has been consistently maintained and is in good running and driving condition. a rare and distinctive example of early postwar British design that is the direct predecessor to the AC Ace and Shelby Cobra. Its cosmetics are sound. Drive it for a few years. then begin a show-winning restoration.
