AC ACE 1955 (Historic Plate) Silver
Manufactured in 1955 - Chassis No: 172925, Ruddspeed 2.6 Engine fitted at BRM factory in Bourne in 1962, along with close-ratio gearbox and low ratio differential. Engine rebuilt by Competition Engine Services with 180 bhp when overdrive was installed. All other mechanical parts have been rebuilt or replaced. Many light-weight aluminium parts fitted including manifolds, exhaust, sump, radiator, fuel and catch tanks, and calipers. Mileage of 49,900 appears correct given MOT's and lay-up of 21 years. Body, dash and seats all original, hence very much patina in evidence! Two box folders of history including original works manual, log book, bills and receipts from 1967.
With previous owner for 34 years and with me for 7 years. New Tax, MOT and Michelin tyres. Just returned from Vernasca Silver Flag near Milan. Fast and with 60's race history, this Ace must be eligible for just about everything.
