The AC Ace is regarded as the quintessential British sportscar, frequently described as the more sophisticated brother of the Cobra. Built between 1953 and 1963 AC took a design by John Tojeiro that used a light ladder type tubular frame, all independent transverse leaf spring suspension and an open two seater all alloy body made using English wheeling machines. Early cars took their power from ACs elderly 100bhp two litre engine. From 1956 AC adopted the ex BMW two litre straight six cylinder Bristol engine with triple carburation. Fitted with a four-speed gearbox, top speed leapt to 116mph with a 0-60 mph time of just 9 seconds. AC enjoyed a successful motorsport program with an AC Bristol winning the 1957, 1958 and 1959 Sports Car Club of Americas E Production class, and running at Le-Mans in 1957 and 1958. The AC Bristol powered Ace offered here at Autostorico is a 1957 matching numbers example finished in Metalline Blue metallic with Blue leather interior. BEX 329 (Chassis number) left the factory on 27th July 1957 destined for AC Imports in Arlington, Virginia The cars first owner is unknown, but by 1964 it belonged to George Conrades of Bexley, Ohio. Conrades then sold the car to Bob Fergus, a sports car enthusiast who was a pioneer in post war road racing. Like all the cars in Furguss collection, it was maintained by his own race shop. In 1989 he sold the car to a collector in Maryland named Randy Hardgrove. In 2011 a considerable amount of restorative work was commissioned including New upholstery, and door panels. The brakes were rebuilt with new hydraulics, shoes and turned drums. An engine overhaul was completed. The carburettors were rebuilt. The fuel system was overhauled including a rebuilt mechanical fuel pump and fuel tank restoration. Steering column bearing replacement and Generatorrewire. All mechanical works were undertaken by Unsworth Engineering in the US. The car has proven to be enjoyable and trust worthy having successfully competed, trouble free, on the Colorado Grand, Montana Going to the Sun Rally, and the Arizona 500 Rally twice. The car retuned to the UK in April 2015 and was sold to its current owner in October of that year. At the end 2018 the car was subject to an extensive overhaul by Moto Technique Ltd of West Molesey at a cost of £46700. Works included bare metal respray, supply and fit new wheels and tyres, supply and fit an overdrive to the gearbox, carry out a major service including ignition system overhaul, new rubber seals to doors and boot apertures, replace worn out carpet and prepare underside of wings for anti stone chip cladding.

Despatched on the 15th January 1959 to Competition Motors, California, USA this AC Ace originally left the factory with an AC six cylinder engine. The engine was upgraded to a Cobra style 289 V8 sometime before 1991; on file, there is a copy of the AC Ace & Aceca Register with a hand written date of that year, noting the last known owner as B Murillo with the comment '5/87 Action; Current engine: Ford 289'; In 1992 the car was the subject of a complete restoration by Restoration Associates, California. Further restoration work includes a full repaint to its current colour and the fitment of a Borg Warner T5 gearbox in 2003. From California this Ace emigrated to Australia in 2012 and has seen very little use. As such it presents remarkably well, a testament to its earlier restoration. Aside from the running gear and Cobra style rear bumper, this Ace presents as a standard looking AC Ace, the T5 gear lever the only give away in an otherwise standard cabin. Finished to a very high level, this V8engined Ace is more than quick enough to raise your heart rate!
