Autotrivia Quiz – Friday January 20 – January 26, 2012


Last week I mentioned that the AC Ace did not start its production life as an AC, but as something else, which was purchased by AC and the Bristol engine removed.

What was that original car?  It was a Tojeiro, designed and built by John Tojeiro.  AC took the Bristol engine out and used their own (very old) AC engine instead.  Of course, the ultimate form of this car was the 7 liter Ford Shelby Cobra.

So to this week.  What postwar icon had windows and roof (metal or canvas) as optional extras?  Clue: think mud.
