In 1933 Veloce Limited augmented its established range of overhead-camshaft models with an overhead-valve 250 - the MOV. The newcomer's power unit was a 'high camshaft' design with enclosed valves, and the compact and sprightly machine featured a four-speed gearbox equipped with the company's new foot-change mechanism. The following year an overhead-valve 350 built along MOV lines appeared. This was the long-stroke MAC, which was subsequently bored out to create the 500cc MSS. Post-war, the trio of overhead-valve Velos continued much as before, with rigid frames and - initially - Webb girder forks. The MAC gained an alloy cylinder barrel and 'head for 1951, as well as Velocette's own telescopic front fork in place of the previous Dowty, and was further updated with a swinging-arm frame in 1953. Apparently substantially original and complete, this post-war MAC carries a tax disc that expired in August 1973, which almost certainly is when it was last on the road. In storage for many years, it would benefit from mechanical re-commissioning and an 'oily rag' wipe-over, or alternatively would make an excellent candidate for full restoration. The machine is offered with BM-S instruction book and is sold strictly as viewed. There is no registration document with this Lot.
