Nice short video and interview with story and photos.

I was a corner worker in Tucson when this car was raced in period by Gil Raney.


The JD Classics website says  £165,000.  Coys indicates it sold for ££93,640 at Blenheim Palace in July 2015.


Ace, Aceca & Greyhound Forum / 1951 AC Ace - Ford Tool Room Copy

Is this the same car which was for sale for several years before being sold at Coys? Wat is a "Ford Tool Room Copy"?

The proportions in the photos look odd, sort of like a toy photographed to look like a real car.

Keith, interestingly he seems to live on Whidbey Island not far from Martin Rudow (Sports Racing Cars books) and within 50 miles or so from me. I'll try to get in touch with him.

Here's a place in New Hampshire which seems to have replacement ferrules for Cobras if they are the same (maybe they can provide dimensions)

ACOC News and Events / Invacar model 70

This webpage has some info on the Thundersley Invacar 70. Generally informational but does suggest that the Thundersley was designed by AC (or maybe it means was based on an AC design):
   There is a photo and description of an instruction manual and more info here:

There's a fair amount of information on the internet about Bob Fergus but nothing pertaining to an AC, mostly MGTC, AH 100, Porsche 550.
   He apparently remained active in vintage racing until his death in 1999.

That appears to be the Ace from the Toad Hall collection at the Homestead Inn at Hyannis Port Mass.
   I recall seeing a story on this "red" car collection several years ago.

Sports Car Graphics simply lists it as a 1966 Shelby Cobra. There are a number of photos of the car in various reports on the 2017 Villa d'este Concours.

Ace, Aceca & Greyhound Forum / AC Ace RS5036
« on: April 01, 2017, 18:22:57 »
Nice car and the change from green to blue makes it loo like an entirely different car.
   Somewhere I wonder if there's another undiscovered barn find.
   RS5024 was last heard of in the Sacramento California area shortly after I sold it in the early 1970's. Is it sitting in a garage, destroyed or converted to a Cobra replica?

While I never had it apart to repair I seem to recall that either my XK120 or RS 5024 had the same problem. I wonder if there is a compressing part/ring inside the knob which wears. I found an image of a replacement knob with two small semi circle pieces which might be broken or worn?

Recent ACs / New Continuation Cobras
« on: October 16, 2016, 19:00:42 »
Is the Hawk comparable to the new Steve Gray cars? I thought the Hawk was fiberglass and the AC Heritage cars aluminum.
   When the CSX7000 series was announced the fiberglass cars were to be $96,000 and the aluminum cars $160,000 less running gear and so a complete aluminum car would have been around $200,000 US.
   Being built by AC Heritage with AC licensing would add value but maybe not $300,000, but again with a volume of 9 they will be exclusive.
