Sure would like some photos.
That outfit has several AC's but I can't find the pictures button.

I was able to save the pictures on the Henderson Fellowes website of Tony Bancrofts car.
Surely Nik Bagshaw can add some interesting info as his father was one of its former owners.

I can’t believe it’s for sale; sadly, just like the Cobra, it will be forever out of reach to me!  :-[

Oh Nik, don't be negative. You never know you could win the lottery this weekend then I guarantee the car would be in your garage come the following weekend. BUT if you don't win the lottery and I do I'll buy it for you!

It will be interesting to see what this project sells for relative to “the mortal remains” of RS 5032 which sold recently in the U.K. The Ford engined Ace is much rarer and had its original engine but there seems to be more of this one.

That is quite a bit of negative camber on both the front and rear axles, isn't it?
The fuel supply pipe to the carbs should be on the LHS, the steering wheel is awful, the water temp gauge is SW rather than Smiths, the gear lever knob is wrong, no extension on the oil fill up rocker cover, no glovebox lid, and there is just something bizarre with how front wheels look, like the proportions on the front wings are off, or is this just a ride height issue?
