It 's not an AC
They was chain drive with a diff in the middle of the chassis. This has a diff sittin on a very big spring pack!
Thinkin maybe British? Just by the button grease nipples on the front shackles.

I think your right Steve, English/ European, I'd go for English wheels, looks like late 20's, probably the last of the solid tyres, worm drive diff. and those greasers are English. Those hooks on the front of chassis should be a give away but they don't appear on photos I have.

Interesting Dave. Albion always used a fully bolted construction so this riveted one would be exceptional. While the front wheels are similar to lighter Albions the front axle is also unusual, as are the front hooks. The thickness of the chassis members suggests a very heavy build which was not Albion's style. Having said that the 35 could be had in a 6 ton version so they might have stepped up a gear.
Must have dropped a pic as I can't see the rear wheels clear enough to count spokes.

Well there you go, the chassis number confirms Dave's identification, well done.
