AC Drophead Coupé 2 litre 1949 RHD Long before WWII AC had established a reputation of producing very well engineered, sporty cars offering excellent performances, thanks to the in-house designed modern overhead cam 6 cylinder 2 litre engine. With the post-war 2 litre model, AC had managed to produce a more practical and comfortable saloon car, while retaining both performance (still from the same 6 cylinder 2 litre engine) and sleek looks. For the 1949 model year a Drophead Coupé model was introduced. At that time considered as a superb looking open AC described by Motor Industry magazine as: Dream Car from Ditton! This factory DHC was for export only, probably in an attempt to establish a prestige image. Only about 13 were built in total of which the AC club has registered only 6 examples still in existance. One of my long term classic car friends came across this very rare AC approx. 15 years ago in the UK and was immediately smitten with this practical 4 seater convertible. After a in depth restoration, which also consisted in a colour change from dark blue to old English white, this AC DHC rapidly became the most usable open classic from his small collection of British classic cars even to the point that also Saint Nicholas requested this AC for his annual visit to the children from my friends home town. If even Saint Nicholas is convinced about the many qualities of this AC, why wouldnt you? An ultra-rare, very practical, excellent condition AC at a very affordable 57.500 Euro This AC 2 litre DHC comes with Belgian registration as well as ancient UK V5 Registration (FBL 884), AC Owners Club letter of certification and a voluminous history file going back to 1963 with maintainance history by AC Cars in Thames Ditton!
