The V8-powered version of the original Blaire Ace would have been the company’s ace in the hole for much of the 60s. 300 horsepower would have kept it competitive with contemporary Euro exotics, and at a reasonable price (for its time) to boot. The entry-level 4.6L V6 is too slow and rough for its sleek lines, though, and should never have been offered on the Ace in the first place.

Yeah sorry, I’m still learning the basics of engineering. I’ll use your advice for later generations though! Thanks for the help!
