(FORD­WA­TER TRO­PHY)

AC’S big four-seater open tourer, pow­ered by its ven­er­a­ble two-litre straight-six over­head-cam en­gine – the de­sign of which dated back to 1919, but still mo­ti­vated the Hur­lock broth­ers’ early Ace sportscars from ’54 – was per­haps the most un­likely rac­ing car at this year’s Re­vival. Mar­que spe­cial­ist Steve Gray hus­tled his ’53 ex­am­ple to 20th in the Ford­wa­ter Tro­phy GT set, mix­ing it with a Con­naught L2, Healey-sil­ver­stone, Buck­ler NAC and a flat-four Jowett Jupiter.
