A marvelous, fine-driving Aceca with a highly original interior, factory tool kit, and original radio. One of only 151 AC-powered Acecas produced. Regularly enjoyed and maintained, well suited for a wide variety of driving events.
This 1958 AC Aceca is an original left-hand drive example and one of just 151 AC-powered Acecas produced in total. Chassis number AEX672, this car was completed on June 24, 1958, and shipped to BC Sports Cars of Vancouver, British Columbia. Exceedingly rare, this is one of just 28 AC-powered Acecas produced in 1958 and one of only 11 exported to Canada during the model’s entire run. It is an attractive car that has never been entirely apart, instead, treated to restoration work where needed, and now presented with a charming, road-ready character. In 2007, AEX672 received some careful restoration work, including a bare-metal respray, with an emphasis on retaining the car’s exceptional originality. Concurrently, the AC 2-liter inline-six (number 2356-W) was rebuilt with particular care given to preserving the original look. The car benefits from regular use, care, and maintenance at the hands of its current enthusiast owner.
Attractively finished in light metallic blue, the Aceca rides on argent painted 16-inch wire wheels, shod with correct style B.F. Goodrich Silvertown bias-ply tires. As this car has seen regular road use, a few minor touch-ups can be found on close inspection, yet there remains a lovely and warm luster to the paintwork. Body fittings and accessories include the rare tubular bumpers, the classic egg-crate grille, and the scarcely seen roof-mounted aerial. A pair of period correct Lucas Flamethrower driving lamps on custom brackets supplement the tripod headlamps.
