The light-weight tubular chassis was designed by John Tojeiro in 1952. A superb handling sportscar, the AC Ace Bristol competed at Le Mans in 1957, and 1958, as well as placing in the Sports Car Club of America’s championships of 1957, 1958, and 1959. The AC is often referred to as the older brother to the Cobra. This Bristol’s original Bright Blue Metaline exterior and light beige interior have been upgraded for an emerald green exterior and black interior. The original blue hood (soft top) and tonneau cover, side curtains, and jack are present. The engine has been replaced, the current numbered 100D2 941, which originally came from BEX 1073.
In total, there were around 735 Aces and 326 Acecas produced.
