1983 AC 3000 ME

The AC 3000 ME was launched at the London Motor Show in 1973 and offered for sale by AC Cars between 1979 and 1984. During the 1970’s, AC Managing Director, W. Derek Hurlock, developed a new and smaller car. Mid-engined designs were in fashion at the time and in 1972 the prototype Diabolo was built with an Austin Maxi engine and transaxle. However, following considerable investment in development using the BLMC power unit and transmission, the engine manufacturers decided that they needed all the E series engines they could make to power their own Maxi and Allegro models, so the Diabolo project appeared likely to collapse for lack of an engine. In much the same way as they had taken up the Tojeiro prototype and turned it into the Ace, AC acquired the rights and at the 1973 London Motor Show showed their own version, the mid-engined 3000 ME with the 3.0 litre Ford Essex V6 engine installed transversely over a custom AC designed gearbox. The car featured a steel chassis making extensive use of square-section steel tube with a strong monocoque for the central portion of the body. This framework supported a fibreglass body.

This AC has been highly spec'd for by the previous owner. Mechanically, this is a very impressive example as confirmed by the extensive history folder with a triple weber carburettor setup and 3.1 Cologne engine.

From a cosmetic point of view, the coachwork is in fair order as is the interior.. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate , with only 106 units manufactured in total, these highly useable AC’s are a rare sight on British roads.

Further specification can be sent out on request.

V6 Number plate not included.
