AC Emblem Round Aluminum Sign
Vintage AC Emblem Novelty Round Sign
AC Cars, originally incorporated as Auto Carriers Ltd., is a British specialist automobile manufacturer and one of the oldest independent car makers founded in Britain. As a result of financial problems over the years, the company was renamed or liquidated many times until its present form. The first car from what eventually became AC was presented in 1903 by The Weller brothers. Forward several years to September 1961, when AC was approached by Carroll Shelby to use a small block Ford V8 engine in the Ace chassis, producing the AC Cobra. Shelby needed a car that could compete with the Chevrolet Corvette in US sports car racing. Only a single example was built (CSX 2000) using a Ford 221 Windsor V8. It debuted in 1962 with a Ford 260 V8 engine. This was then superseded by the Ford 289 V8 engine. The resulting Cobra was a very powerful roadster, and it is commonly blamed for the introduction of the 70 mph (110 km/h) limit on British motorways. At the end of the 1964 racing season, the Cobra was being outclassed in sports car racing by F******. Carroll Shelby decided he needed a bigger engine. A big block Ford FE series 390 V8 was installed in a Cobra but it was over powered and the car was now almost undrivable.
Perfect for all car enthusiasts that want to show their passion for their AC, this Novelty Round Sign looks great on a wall at home, garage, office, workshop, Man cave, private roadways or anywhere you feel you deserve a special decoration spot. The colors are brights and contrast beautifully with the vintage AC emblem. For any car guy, this is the ideal gift to add style and show their pride.
