Very rarely does one of these extremely sought-after and exquisite models come up for sale.

This is the actual Earls Court Motor Show car with several unique features – and one of only 14 ’sloping-tail’ examples built.

It was exported to the USA in the 1960’s and returned to the UK in 2007 after which it was restored to the highest Show-winning standards by AC Marque specialists over a 10 year period.

In June it had its first public outing as an entrant in the prestigious City of London Concours.

Complete with full weather equipment and tools.

Massive history file plus CD of the restoration accompanies the car, which incidentally also drives superbly.

A unique opportunity to acquire one of the most desirable and elegant post-vintage thoroughbred sports-cars!
