Coupe
Chassis #: BEX 632
Sold for $286,000 at 2017 RM Sothebys : Monterey.
AC built 171 examples of the Aceca and 83 were left-hand drive examples. Approximately 25 are believed to have been fitted with factory overdrive. Power was from a 1971cc cast-iron six-cylinder Bristol engine with hemispherical heads.

This example was completed on December 2nd of 1957 and delivered to Precision Autos in Dallas, Texas. It was purchased new in 1958 by Peter Sachs, of Goldman-Sachs fortune. He sold the car in 1965 to Jim Mullen, of Mullen Advertising, on a handwritten Bill of Sale. It remained with Mr. Mullen for some 50 years. The current caretaker acquired the car from Mr. Mullen in 2015.

In 2007, the car was sent back to AC Cars UK for re-commissioning. This was the last car they restored before their doors were shuttered forever.

The car is finished in black over a red interior.
