Jacky Mason (nee Hurlock) is the granddaughter of Lesley Hurlock who was one of the original major shareholders of AC Cars. Lesley Hurlock was the brother of William and Charles Hurlock who originally purchased AC Cars, at the time in a small factory in Brixton, London, before relocating the business to Thames Ditton in Surrey.
Jacky’s father Anthony Hurlock, (son of Lesley Hurlock) is the only living direct family member from this time, he studied his mechanical apprenticeship at the AC factory in Thames Ditton and met Carrol Shelby when he had initial conversations with Derek Hurlock about the possibility of putting a Ford engine and gearbox in one of the AC Cars, which became the AC Ace.
Jacky has a passion for the Shelby Cobra stemming from her family involvement in the design and development of the AC Ace. She immigrated from the UK and now lives in Perth, Western Australia. In 2017 she reached out to the Cobra Car Club of W.A. to see if she could be involved in some way and the CCCWA is very proud to have Jacky as our inaugural club patron.
