This 1924 AC Royal two-seater was first registered MN 3513 in October 1924 in the Isle of Man, the car came to the mainland in 1962 and was re-registered XFR 513. Between 1962 & 2014 it’s had only three owners and spent some time on display in a Yorkshire car collection.
The engine was rebuilt with many new parts (pistons, clutch, timing chains, exhaust, etc) and the crank assembly balanced to produce a smooth, lively engine.
It is not known when the bodywork was restored, but it is in very sound condition, surprisingly attractive in its brown and beige colour scheme. The carpets were replaced recently and have tailor-made coir covers to protect them when the car was used in inclement weather. The car also has a dickey seat.
The cream leather upholstery is nicely mellowed, being in that sweet spot of being worn in without being worn out. The hood, too, is good having been recently reconditioned and comes with a matching cover.
The Royal is a pretty, lightweight vintage car, It is eligible for VSCC Light Car and Edwardian Section events and has been carefully recommissioned by an enthusiast, and is ready to be used and enjoyed.
Also has a possible transferable plate.
