Definitely AC, not Shelby.

One of the relatively few four cylinder AC models. I have checked three sources and it may be that AC is the make, and Royal the model name of the tourer. The cubic capacity of the engine is more likely 1496cc, the engines being built by British Anzani and later Cubitt. AC 12hp Royal is suggested as a suitable name, unless anyone can come up with a better idea.
