Personally Owned by Derek Hurlock , OPG 192, it was built in 1950 at AC Cars in Thames Ditton works where it was fitted with Independent Front Suspension the result was a very robust split-axle suspension , the outcome of the exercise was rather mixed; the ride and steering on poor road surfaces was greatly improved, but made the steering somewhat heavier than beam-axled cars. The company, seeing in the far and not too distant future the end of volume production for the saloon, lost interest in the future development of the IFS. This holding significant value being the only Two Litre to have IFS.
The car has been displayed at Club Events by Derek Hurlock. OPG 192 is captured here at a very wet Silverstone in image three. In addition to this following the end of the second world war, the RAC Rally was finally revived in 1951. OPG 192 was entered by AC Cars for the event, driven by Derek Hurlock and Jock Henderson. The start of the rally was in Hastings and the finish in Bournemouth. The car had been photographed on the rally, and is seen above. Being rich in history of AC cars, its a project worth saving, would make a genuine period competition or rally car.
The Two Litre requires a complete restoration of body, wood and mechanical work, the engine was in running condition prior to removal four years ago, however it has been put into storage. The cars leather interior and other components e.g steering wheel etc seem in good condition still.
