1959 AC Ace Bristol photograph

1959 AC Ace Bristol
Roadster
Chassis #: BEX 1045
This 1959 AC ACE Bristol BEX 1045 is shown as it was most well known the 'Mongoose'. The transformation from British sports car to high performance speed racer was the brainchild of Jerry Scheberies and Walt Peterson who replaced the factory Bristol six-cylinder engine with the perfectly fitted F85 Oldsmobile V-8 and Corvette transmission in the early 1960s. Documentation can be verified in the article 'Mongoose' in the August 1963 edition of Hot Rod Magazine. The current owner has personally spoken to Jerry Scheberies for specifics during the body off restoration. Jerry also provided hand-written documentation of his original build of the Mongoose. It was competitively raced in rally events in the early 1960s and then moved on to show. The car is shown in original factory color, Svecia Red with black interior. Thumel's Abacus Racing acquired the car in
2013, where it has been under restoration since.
