AC introduced a four seater coupe to its model range in 1959, the Greyhound. The Greyhound shared many components with the smaller Ace range, including the same engine choices. Most cars used the 2 litre and 2.2 litre Bristol engines, although the original AC in-house design was available at first.
A true four-seater with decent luggage space, it further benefited from all-round independent coil-sprung suspension, a slick four-speed manual gearbox, disc / drum brakes and rack and pinion steering. The straight-six engine which had done so much to establish the AC name in competition circles was credited with a 100mph-plus top speed and brisk acceleration.
