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 designerís son, John Tojeiroís 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 motorcarís 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:
