1955 AC Ace
Roadster
Chassis #: AE73
AC Cars of Thames Ditton introduced their all-new Ace Roadster at the 1953 London Auto Show. Based on a design by noted race car builder John Tojeiro, the car had many advanced features which included a twin steel tube chassis with four-wheel independent suspension, Girling drum brakes, the proven 2-liter 6-cylinder overhead AC engine and an all-aluminum body.

Arriving in May of 1955, AE73 is one of only a few right-hand drive Ace Roadsters directly exported to North America. It was actively campaigned in SCCA events in Canada and the United States with good success, including a victory at the 1956 Holland, New York Hill Climb. The car was restored in 1998 and true to its heritage continues to participate in sports car touring events throughout the northeastern states.
