Lot 1001

A classic motor car. An AC Buckland Sports Tourer, GFY707, manufactured 1949. The vehicle recently passed it MOT although not required. It’s not clear how many of these cars were built as there are no factory records, but it’s estimated that about 80 cars were built from 1949-53. We do know from the AC owners club that this car was the 6th built.

The Buckland shared all of its running gear with the 2 litre saloon from the six-cylinder triple carb, overhead camshaft AC engine, Moss gearbox to the ENV rear axle. Registered on the 1st January 1950 in Southport little is known about the car’s history, however from 1969 to date the car has history. The car was purchased by the vendor in 2014 as a restoration project having been off the road for decades. A complete documented nut and bolt restoration followed which included chassis, bodywork, interior and all the mechanics.

Finished in Opaline/British Racing Green with cream leather interior. The thousands spent on the vehicle show in the now showroom condition you see it in today. The car has only covered 350 miles since the restoration. There are also some spares with the car and a memory stick containing a fully documented photograph album of the restoration from being dragged into the workshop to what we see today.

Sold: £26,000
