There have been a number of books on AC – one of Britain’s oldest and most respected car makers – but this is the first to concentrate on the Two-litre Saloon and the coachbuilt Tourer which shared the chassis and 6-cylinder engine, the Buckland Sports.

An absolutely invaluable companion for owners of these cars and fascinating for all AC enthusiasts, this book tells the story of development, production and motorsport. It also contains much sage advice on ownership and maintenance, and even tips on performance tuning the classic AC two-litre engine.

Appendices detail major specification changes and feature a complete record of every chassis, including year of registration, body colours, chassis and engine numbers.

The story of these cars is illustrated by an extraordinary collection of images, many very rare, and including unique original concept/design illustrations for the Two-litre Saloon.

In Jeep Cherokee XJ Advanced Performance Modifications: 1984–2001, author Eric Zappe explains how to transform a stock Cherokee into the toughest and most capable off-road 4x4 SUV. The author details the buildup, right combination of parts and products, and modifications necessary to build an aggressive off-road rig. He also shows how to weld and gusset the frame in critical areas. 

Installing a three- and four-link suspension system is also profiled so the Cherokee delivers greater travel and better off-road handling. Suspension and frame modifications are necessary to run large wheels and tires.
