High bid of $130,000 at 2015 Mecum : Monterey. (did not sell)
The AC Ace was the first British post-war production car to be given an all-independent suspension. They wore a design in similar fashion to the Ferrari 166 Barchettas, as both designs were taken from a 166-inspired racecar built by John Tojiero for British race driver Cliff Davis. Tojiero also designed the Ace frame and fitted the Cooper-influenced all-independent suspension. Under the bonnet was AC's venerable 1,991cc long-stroke inline-6.

In 1954, a coupe version of the Ace was introduced. The hatchback body was hand-formed from aluminum over a more substantial frame with major components mounted on rubber bushings.

Also in 1954, AC began offering the Bristol inline-6, a more potent pushrod OHV engine available in both 105 and 120 HP tune.

This particular Bristol-powered Aceca coupe was given a restoration in the late 1980s by Spencer Lane-Jones. It was given a period-correct replacement Bristol engine and the car was converted to left-hand drive at that time. It is finished in Rouge Irise with original Tan leather seats. It has new wood dash trim and re-plated brightwork.
