Fastback Coupe
The AC Auto-Carriers was founded in 1903 and is among the oldest British automobile firms. In 1905, the produced a 3-wheel commercial vehicle that was financially successful, followed by a passenger carrying motor vehicle - the 'Sociable' - first produced in 1907, followed by the all-new 4-wheel AC of 1913.

In 1921, AC Cars Ltd. was established under new management that introduced racing and record setting to the marque. They secured a Monte Carlo Rally victory in 1926 among a host of victories. Later, in 1953, AC returned to sports cars with the introduction of the Ace first shown at Earls Court. Based on the highly successful John Tojeiro roadster built for Cliff Davis and powered by the Bristol inline 6-cylinder 2-liter engine, the pre-war BMW 328 'spoils of war' engine, the AC Ace-Bristol proved a major success both in sales and in competition.

Employing features of the BMW 328 chassis and transverse leaf spring layout, the Tojeiro design proved capable of superior high speed cornering. Following the roadster in 1954 came the Aceca GT Coupe also introduced at Earls Court. Both the open and closed cars went on to receive various engines including the Ford Zephyr, designated RS, and AC's 6-cylidner, designated AE, that had been steadily refined for more than 4 decades.

Total production of the Aceca GT Coupe reached 349 by end of production in 1963, 48 were built in 1959.

This 1959 AC Aceca is an AEX model (X for left-hand drive export).
