This particular example would be completed in 1958 and would make its way to the United States. Upon arrival, the car would end up the property of renowned New York City jeweler Harry Winston's son, Peter Winston.

Peter Winston would make use of the car everyday around Manhattan for a number of years before it would be sold to Tom Hickey. Hickey would be a Ph.D. candidate at Harvard's School of Education at the same time he took part in the final Cannonball run in 1975. Taking part in such events was just part of Hickey's racing endeavors. The Aceca served to bridge the gap between his personal and racing interests. However, not long after taking ownership of the car Hickey would send the car back across the Atlantic to have AC Cars to refurbish and return the Aceca-Bristol to like new status.

Hickey would not part with the Aceca unless there was something that forced his hand. Sadly, a tragic illness would prove to be the force for which he wasn't ready. Enter John Moir.

Moir would take delivery of the car and it would immediately become a favorite within his collection. Even after 30 years, the Aceca retained a very special place within Moir's heart. As a result, the car would remain highly original. The engine is the original Bristol powerplant placed inside the car in 1958. Beyond the engine, the interior, finish and other such details remain nearly as they were when new. As such, the car provides rich memories of Winston, Hickey and Moir.

AC Car's Aceca-Bristol would be one of its finest combinations of performance and refinement. And, this particular example would have to be considered one of the most respected variants of the Bristol-powered Acecas produced by AC.

Offered as part of RM Auctions' 2014 Hershey event, the 1958 AC Aceca-Bristol would earn pre-auction estimates ranging between $175,000 and $250,000. Proving its provenance and limited nature, the car would end up garnering a sale price of $214,500.
