This just rolled into the shop recently. A 1960 AC Aceca Bristol coupe. It has a beautiful light body, with a Bristol six cyclinder engine, fed by three downdraft Solex carbs. What not everyone knows is that it was the AC chassis that Carol Shelby put a Ford 289 into to create the Cobra. With its aircraft heritage and BMW inspired design many purists think the light chassis and sophisticated engine was prettier and more satisfying than the brutal cobra. To each his own.
This car has a couple of very low compression cylinders, so its off with the head and into the bottom end of the engine to see what's wrong. Might need to make a few calls to the UK depending on what we find.
