Having been in storage for some time the AC 16/70 came in for a comprehensive mechanical recommission. Fresh fluids and various gaskets dealt with all of the oil leaks from the engine, gearbox and rear axle. We stripped and recommissioned the brakes and rebuilt the car’s adjustable suspension. Whilst with us the owner decided that the glossy white paint made it look like a wedding car, so it was dispatched to Autowerx, Milton Keynes and was repainted in this rather fetching Royal Blue. Finally we cleaned the fuel system, rebuilt the carburettor and set up the engine. These AC 16/70’s are really rare, but fantastic to drive.
