AC ACEDES ROYAL 16/40, ACEDES MAGNA 16/56 & 16/66

2-seater, 2-seater sports, fixed-head coupé, 2-seater drophead coupé, saloon.

Last of the old three-speed transaxle ACs with roundnose radiators continued under Hurlock management. 16/40 (not after '30) with disc wheels and mechanical brakes, others with wire wheels, hydraulic brakes, semi-elliptics at the front, and centralised chassis lubrication. All with coil ignition, 16/66 has three carbs. Noisy on their indirect gears, but unlike earlier ACs they've all got rear tanks and Autovacs.
