Speaking to Gael Regent
How doing it for the love eventually reaped rewards for the Dutch Jaguar specialist
The dealer Chardonnet was very active pushing the AC brand here and there is an active community of French AC owners. There are quite a few Aces and Cobras in France, including racers. This car goes like a Cobra should and has enough torque to be frightening in Paris! It has changed colour from its delivery Vineyard Green, but everything else is very original. Even the seats have their original leather, just recoloured. It has been with the same collector for the last 40 years, and he sent us pictures of its history in France (above).
