1960's AC Ace Replica by Hawk For Sale

Created from a body and chassis kit by Hawk Cars, the vehicle was completed in 2000 by an engineer enthusiast who never drove the car. Since purchased by the current owner in 2008, great time and care has been taken to re-create a car as close to the original AC ACE 2.6 as possible. With full period instrumentation and switches, including a restored original ACE bakelite steering wheel. This car has extensive show history, taking centre stand at the AC 289 register stand at NEC in Nov 2009, with photos of the original designer’s son, John Tojeiro’s sitting in the car. There is a huge build and photographic file with the car including all invoices of both the initial build and subsequent work. This car runs on a period BMW M-20 2.6 litre engine with triple 40 DCOE Webers and a Getrag 4 speed gearbox, producing over 170 BHP on such a light car is a thrill to drive and listen to with its exhaust note. Attention to detail on this motorcar’s creation adds to the owners desire to produce a car that can easily stand not just beside the original, but also in its own right. Specification: ENGINE BMW M20, rebuilt and bored out from 2.5 to 2.6 Litre by Robin Lackford Engineering. Triple Weber 40-DCOE carburetors on aluminum manifold with customized throttle linkage, trumpets and K&N filters. Tubular bespoke German hi-flow exhaust inlet manifold exiting through a customized Austin-Healey twin pipe exhaust system. Gearbox Getrag 4 speed rebuilt by Robin Lackford Engineering in Nov 2010. Wheels 15 inch Austin Healey 60 spoke wheels on MGB spines with Vredstein Classic 185/70HR15 road tyres Bodywork By Gerry Hawkridge of Hawk Cars. One of only twelve ACE 2.6 bodies produced by Gerry, making this a rare car. Similar to the production run of the original AC ACE 2.6 cars, where only 27 cars were produced. Painted Aston Martin classic colour of Snowdrift Shadow Grey by Ian Taylor of Horley Sussex in December 2008. Lucas PL700 Tri-bar headlamps have been fitted with original L542 rear combination tail/brake lamps. All body badges as per original car and correctly positioned. Chassis The Hawk chassis is the closest recreation to the original and is industry recognized as such with Gerry Hawkridge supplying many AC ACE and Cobra replacement parts to original car owners. Interior Professional black bespoke carpet, dashboard, door panels etc. by The Trimming Centre of Hove Sussex, plus period seats. Original bakelite AC Ace steering wheel restored by Lancaster Vintage & Classic Spares.
