1961 AC Greyhound Bristol BEF2554. A very original Greyhound that has not been messed about with and has remained in our family since 1970. It still has its original 2.2 Bristol and overdrive gearbox and all its original red interior and complete tool kit in the boot. The car was dry stored for many years after much use in the 1970s and early 1980s. It was sensitively r ecommissioned over a two-year period keeping it as original as possible yet useable and finished 6 years ago. The dark blue paint was resprayed, the Webasto sunroof was completely r ebuilt, suspension re-bushed, new rear dampers, new exhaust, new rear screen, cylinder head removed and refreshed, brakes rebuilt amongst a long list of jobs. Not been used since the work was completed so it needs to go to a good home where it will receive the TLC it deserves. Comes with a very thick history file with old logbooks and receipts going back to 1970. There are very few Greyhounds as original as this and with the desirable 2.2 Bristol engine and overdrive gearbox. Private sale and sensibly priced to sell to a good home at £67,500.
