AC 2 Litre
AC 2-Litre Tyres
- We recommend the 525/550x17 Lucas classic tyres for models made before 1950, for models made after 1950 we instead suggest the 670 R 16 Avon Turbosteel tyres.
- The ideal choice of inner tube for the early AC 2L is Michelin 17/18E RET, and on the later 2L with 16" wheels the best inner tube is the Michelin 16F Offset Valve Inner Tube.
- We recommend tyre pressure to be 22psi for the front and 27psi for the rear.
History of the AC 2-litre
Post WW2 AC returned to building its high quality but low volume production cars with the AC 2-litre saloon. Post-1953 the model was updated to a 4-door and the engine tweaked to 85bhp from the previous 74bhp and replacing the cable rear brakes with a hydraulic system.
