Julien's Perspective

Some thoughts on this model

We are very pleased to have this superb AC Ace Bristol for sale here at Ranmore.

My association with the owner and his family has been forged through happily handling the sale of a number of their wonderful older Jaguars over the years.

This AC was certainly long term project and the detail and accuracy of the build is testament to both the painstaking time and diligence in repairing the original parts but also sourcing correct items too.

If you will forgive me, I'll just give you the salient information here in the hope you will be encouraged to pick up the telephone and have a proper conversation.
