1937 AC 16/80 “Sloping Tail” Competition Sports

This 1937 AC 16/80 model is one of only 42 Competition Sports two-seaters built between 1935 and 1939. Moreover, it is among just 14 examples produced with “sloping tail” coachwork in the last three years of production. Initially purchased by Ms. Clare Mary Hope-Edwardes, the car was delivered to her in December 1937 and remained in her possession until the early 1950s, which is also the time she assumed the title of Lady More of Bishop’s Castle.

This exceptional car runs on a 2.0-liter inline-six engine, which features an aluminum block and crankcase, a single overhead camshaft, and triple SU carburetors.
