AC ACE

By James_C
Hi one and all,

Many thanks for your kind c+c on my last upload. Last week I was asked by a friend of mine to photograph his AC ACE (or is it ACECA - the log book has both written on it). This is the first time I've been asked to photograph a car so I'm interested to see your comments.
It's quite a car, very much original and has only done 70,333 miles. However all good things must come to an end and sadly he is going to part with it and I haven't had a ride yet Sad - still time though Wink

Thanks for the information Bill. This does have a hard top that can be fitted - I don't know if that counts...
As to the engine, all I can tell you is that I understand it is the 2nd off of the Bristol 100D2 engine that was made for it.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy these.

All the best,

James

Super car in great condition, I drove one of these down from Warwick to London three weeks ago 1958 AC Ace which won its class in Le Man. Now gone to new home in France I'm afraid.

I think V1 just pips V2 - smoothness of lines, clear view through windscreen. What a very sad face the car has - but those leather seats are so tactile.

A fine set of one of the loveliest English sports cars, always a favourite of mine even though I have never been closer to one than from members' enclose to trackside at Goodwood in about 1958. 797TPP looks to be in great condition.
I think it has the A.C. 2-litre engine.
I have always believed the Aceca was a hard-top version, even prettier than the open 2-seater Ace. Unlike the Ace I have never seen one at all Sad
Thanks for posting this. Unfortunately all I can do is drool.
