The AC is the first built in Scotland after the move from Thames Ditton. It is chassis number 185, and the first of 30 to be built in Hillington, Scotland, out of a total of around 130 worldwide. Bought in 1985 by my dad from its first owner, it was kept in the Motoring Heritage Trust Museum for many years until their unfortunate closure in July 2007.
Since the closure of the museum, #185 has spent some time in Bishopton Hiring & Garage to get spruced up for an MOT. On the agenda was a rebuilt aluminium fuel tank, replacement gear linkage pins, and a lot of TLC. In order to assist the garage with their work, I scanned and duplicated the manual so they wouldn’t have to worry about keeping the original clean and tidy. As a service to others, I’ve put the manual online in PDF and JPG format to assist anyone else that may need it.
