AC Story Reaches US Audience via Simeone Museum

The story of how a small British car manufacturer, AC, realized success through the inception of a three-wheel delivery vehicle in 1907 to the fire breathing, record breaking, AC Cobra’s is being told by The Simeone Automotive Foundation Museum in Philadelphia.

The Simeone Museum has one of the world’s greatest collections of racing sports cars. Its theme is “The Spirit of Competition” and celebrates the history and evolution of over 65 historically significant cars assembled over 50 years by Dr Frederick Simeone.

The Museum’s special event – “Best of Britain – an AC Cars Retrospective” – takes place from February 18 to March 12, 2017.

The three-week exhibit will begin on Saturday, February 18, 2017 with an opening meet and greet reception, followed by a buffet and talk by noted AC race driver William S. Jackson. The incredible display of prewar and postwar AC’s is the largest collection of the marque ever presented in the US. The inclusive representation of the marque will allow these cars and their histories to come alive while supporting the Foundation’s Teen Driver Awareness Program.

Dr Simeone said: “The history of AC is a remarkable story of design, entrepreneurship and survival and its great that the AC Brand is being rebuilt today. We have an outstanding collection of vehicles to show off and we look forward to intensive interest from true car enthusiasts”.
