Engine No: 100 D2 813 Bristol D2 engine, the first Aceca fitted with the uprated 122 bhp D2First registered 2 July 1958. Full matching numbers, original engine, gearbox and chassisLong term ownership from March 1966 to 2005 before being purchased by our vendorPartially stripped in August 1967 and remained that way for 38 yearsLovely detailed history of our vendor's journey returning the Aceca to glorious healthNotable 'Concours' success 2015/18 winning the 2018 ACOC Hurlock Trophy as 'Champion Car' British racing driver and wizard tuner, Ken Rudd, constructed the very first Ace-Bristol and it wasn't long before his hybrid was quickly adopted by the AC factory. First shown in autumn 1956, the AC Ace-Bristol and its coupé sibling, the Aceca-Bristol, were in production by the spring of 1957. Because it was not only more powerful than AC's own engine but capable of a lot more development, the Bristol unit made these cars much more suited for competition and the extra power seemed to get the best outofa very capable chassis.The roots of the Ace-Bristol design go back to the Thirties, when BMW engine design-chief, Fritz Feider, produced a series of six-cylinder engines that culminated in the 1971-cc unit of the fabled 328. After World War II, Bristol of England 'acquired' the design by somewhat dubious means and manufactured it in the UK. By the mid-1950s, Bristol was happy to supply this remarkable engine to other low volume car makers.

#AE743 is a UK-delivered, right-hand drive AC Aceca originally ordered in Mist Green with green leatherOwned by our vendor for the past seven years, having purchased it, fully restored, from a Mr Humphries in 2012 Mr Humphries bought this Aceca to restore with the intention of making it 'the best in the world'Engine completely rebuilt by Hurley Engine Services. Water jacket and crankshaft modified by Rod BriggsSuperbly finished in Javelin Grey. Completely new tan leather interior by David NightingaleThis is a rare and desirable motor car and represents exceptional value for money Following WWII and in an effort to modernise their lineup, AC was keen to replace the trusty Weller-designed, overhead cam, six-cylinder, two-litre 85bhp engine, which was first used in 1919. The company met John Tojeiro, chassis engineer and racing car designer, and an existing tried and tested design of his (Cliff Davis' little sports-racer) was purchased and modified for road use. The new model, named the Ace, usedastrong 76-mm tubular ladder frame chassis with transverse leaf and wishbone independent suspension front and rear but for the time being, retained AC's own venerable, 2.0-litre, long-stroke six. The light aluminium bodywork bore more than a passing resemblance to Ferrari's pretty 166 Barchetta, however, the car's styling was right up to date, and incredibly handsome if somewhat derivative. Announced in 1953, deliveries of the first 85-bhp Ace from Thames Ditton were not available until April 1954. The Motor magazine claimed 0-60 mph in 11.4 seconds and 103 mph with 25.3 mpg. A total of 223 AC-engined Aces were built, weighing in at 1,685 lbs and carrying an initial price tag of £1,439.The AC Aceca, a three-door and very sleek fastback, was previewed in 1954 becoming one of the very first hatchbacks along with the new 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4. Deliveries were delayed until January 1955, and eventually, only 151 AC-engined Acecas were built. Unlike the Ace, the Aceca had wood-framed doors,wasslightly heavier at 1,840 lbs, and to reduce noise levels within the cabin, AC mounted all major components on rubber bushes. Performance was respectable, if not outstanding, but the combination of a fine-handling chassis, light weight, and classic good looks resulted in a desirable GT in the best AC tradition.According to the AC Aceca Registrar, 'AE743' is a UK delivered, right-hand drive AC Aceca originally ordered in Mist Green (one of only six ever finished in that colour) with a green leather interior. The engine is the original six-cylinder AC unit (CLB2431W7) fitted from new. Our private vendor has owned 'RPN 626' for the past seven years, having purchased it, fully restored, from a Mr Humphries in 2012 and the V5 shows only three owners prior to him.According to correspondence in the history file, Mr Humphries bought this Aceca to restore with the intention of making it 'the best in the world'. At the time of his purchase, he owned three garages in and around Bath and he tasked one ofhislong-standing technicians with the responsibility of returning RPN 626 to its very best. However, all major works requiring specialist skills were contracted out to various experts in the marque including Spencer Lane-Jones, TT Workshop, Rod Briggs, Hurley Engine Services, and David Nightingale.A brief summary of the detail of the restoration is below:Engine: completely rebuilt by Hurley Engine Services. Water jacket and crankshaft modified by Rod Briggs.Chassis and Bodywork: cleaned and powder coated, bare metal repaint in Javelin Grey, all new interior alloy panels.Interior: completely new tan leather interior, headlining and carpets by David Nightingale. All dashboard wood replaced by the 'Posh Dash Co'.Gearbox: overhauled by the TT Workshop.Rear axle: stripped, checked, and reassembled with all new seals and joints. Prop shaft, driveshaft and universal joints stripped, cleaned and reassembled.Suspension: all parts stripped, cleaned and powder coated, reassembled with new parts as required.Allwheel-hubs and bearings replaced. Brakes: new shoes, wheel cylinders, brake drums, master cylinder, handbrake and ratchet with a new cable. New clutch assembly and master cylinder. Electrics: new wiring loom, new front and rear headlights, new dynamo and new battery.The results of this long-term attention by talented people are remarkable and the car's post-restoration freshness has been retained during our vendors seven years caring ownership. Indeed, at the time of writing, the car has been sent to a local specialist to make sure that it's on the button and ready to go for the auction in May.In conclusion, this AC Aceca seems to tick all the boxes in terms of usability and rarity and Silverstone Auctions are proud to offer this stunning example to the open market for the first time in many years. Accompanied by the aforementioned history file, including its instruction manual, this is a rare and desirable motor car and represents exceptional value for money.

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.
