AC Greyhound


AC 2.6 Ace was not announced until the autumn of 1961, although production had started in March of that year. Powered by a Ruddspeed tuned 170 bhp Ford Zephyr 2553cc engine giving 130 mph top speed, this classic two-seater sports model is distinguishable from contemporary AC- and Bristol-engined Ace's by its smaller radiator grille and lower bonnet line. Aceca hardtop version is also available.
