The Cars at Earls Court

A.C. Stand 135 There is no change here except that prices have risen, the saloon now costing £1,059 and the Sports Tourer, with Buckland body, £1,098. The drophead coupe model is discontinued. The other cars retain the well-tried 2-litre, six-cylinder single-o.h.c., light-alloy engine that originated at the Thames Ditton factory as long ago as 1919. A.C. CARS, LTD., THAMES DITTON, SURREY. ALFA...

How Jensens are made

A Visit to the West Bromwich Factory Last month we published road-test reports on the superbly safe four-wheel-drive Jensen FF and the less-expensive Jensen Interceptor, both powered with 6.3-litre Chrysler V8 engines. These are essentially hand-assembled cars, very carefully built and finished at the rate of 18 a week. Some notes follow on a visit to Jensen Motors Ltd. at West Bromwich, where...

Jensen C-V8

A Big Brute with Bags of Performance In Motor Sport last September we reported on a visit to the Jensen factory and it is now possible to give impressions of how this powerful Chrysler-powered car behaves on the road, after a test of some 1,600 miles. At first sight, the life of the Jensen's passengers, like that of Gilbert and Sullivan's policeman, would appear to be an unhappy one, because...

Matters of Moment

A new sports car—The Jensen-Healey We began the year with the suggestion that a sports-car renaissance might well be a feature of the nineteen-seventies, based on the assumptions that the motor car continues to be a status-symbol or, put less blatantly, a pleasurable possession, and that, in open two-seater form, it adds the benefit and enjoyment of fresh-air motoring, good handling and a sense...

The cars at Earls Court

AC, Stand 141 AC have abandoned he 2-litre saloon to concentrate production on the sports open Ace and closed Aceca models, which have a Tojeiro-type tubular chassis with independent suspension front and back and transverse leaf-springs and can be had with either the 90-bhp AC wet-liner, light-alloy six-cylinder engine evolved from a 1919 design, or a D-tpye BMW-conceived Bristol engine giving...

British High-Performance Cars for 1947

Never before has the British Motor Industry been more deserving of publicity. By its contribution to the war effort it most certainly ensured our present Freedom, and the Peace which politicians are making so precarious and comfortless. Nevertheless, seldom has a nation looked more successfully to its export market so soon after the termination of war. And never before has the British Motor...

COACHWORK FOR THE "HORNET SPECIAL" AS the new Hornet chassis is produced specially for coachbuilders, no standard body being supplied for it by the makers, ample opportunity is given for the motorist to satisfy his individual taste, and in the extensive range of bodies which have been designed for ,this car there should be something to please every taste and pocket. The higher compression ratio...

DIRT-TRACK RACING Sir, The article on Dirt Track Racing in America is accurate and comprehensive, but appears to our perhaps provincial viewpoint to be written in English. The author's name and further writings Would be welcome. It might be of interest to add that in addition to the Millers and Ford conversions, there are two successful dirt track cars built by the Ambler brothers, around war-...

Worth waiting for - The Volvo P1800 The present Volvo 122S is a truly remarkable car, offering a quite outstanding performance for a big saloon propelled by a 1.5-litre engine. Motor Sport thought highly of it when we tested it last year; we found it an altogether splendid car marred only by rather odd brakes and a long pre-war American-style gear-lever. Consequently, news of the new Volvo P1800...

Letters from Readers

N.B.,—Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents and Motor Sport does not necessarily associate itself with them.—Ed. "Showtime Soliloquy"—Ferguson on the defensive Sir, You refer to views on 4-W-D and non-locking brakes attributed to Herr Rudi Uhlenhata, of Mercedes-Benz, which will certainly be questioned by most eminent engineers in the motor industry. As Herr Uhlenhaut's comments seem...
