AC introduced a four seater coupe to its
model range in
1959, the Greyhound. The Greyhound shared many components
with the smaller and lighter Ace range, including the same engine choices.
Most cars used the 2 litre and 2.2 litre Bristol engines, although the
original AC in-house design was available at first.
The Greyhounds coachwork looked elegant
and contemporary, the suspension featured coil springs which gave good
ride comfort at the expense of the sharp handling that the Ace enjoyed.
Production lasted until
1963, by then only 83 cars had been built and sold.
