With the same under pining as the legendary 427 Cobra and with Italian GT coachwork from Pininfarina the AC 428 is a truly stunning car. Only 80 were ever made making them very rare and increasingly desirable. This one came in for tuning but we found the vacuum secondary on the Holley carb to be seizing. The best remedy is a replacement carburettor.
Today we had two Ford 289 V8 powered cars on the rollers. The first was a Sunbeam Tiger. An initial session found it to be running very lean. Some work will need to be done to the Holley before it goes back on. Fresh out of the build shop is another 289. This one powering a 1965 Mustang race car. This one will be out on track later this season.
