Brooklands Cars are delighted to bring this historic motorcar to market once again. 1955 AC Ace Chassis No: AE38 Engine No:UMC 2094 Registration:WPF200 AC Cars made a severe impact on the sports car industry, when the Ace was revealed at the 1953 London Motor show, with its simply elegant body, and John Tojeiro's thoughtfully engineered chassis, In the hands of the Hurlock brothers working alongside Tojeiro, they produced a vehicle with four wheel independent suspension, with a simplistic chassis design based around two three inch diameter tubes. The Aces were initially produced with the John Weller designed AC two litre straight six engine that had been continuously developed from its origin in 1919, even though these pre war engines had been developed over the years, they provided a respectable 105 horsepower at there peak. They were known to be very competitive sports of the era in all forms of motor type, whether it be AC, Bristol or Ford. The motorcar offered was purchased by K G Cramp of Mitcham, and left the works on the 5th February 1955, A short four weeks of ownership and AE38 was earning its competition pedigree. It was entered as an AC Cars Ltd works factory entrant to the 1955 RAC Rally, the competition history followed on when the Ace was entered into the five-day Scottish Rally ending in Glasgow on June 3rd 1955. The Ace was not limited to rally events, it had been seen at circuit events throughout the UK, most notably in the hands of R Jameson at the opening meeting of 1957 at Goodwood Motor Circuit, Where he placed second in his race, reportedly after a somewhat wild drive. We were given the task to restore this historic motorcar in the early 2000s, with the scope to sympathetically restore the car to its former glory, aiming to retain as much original aluminium bodywork and patina'd components as possible. We at Brooklands are known for our AC motorcars that continue to compete and finish events such as the Mille Miglia. This meant handling and the safety of the car was of high priority, carrying out a full suspension, brake, ancillaries rebuild alongside a new wiring loam with a braided exterior. As an Award Winning restorer of the marque. We utilised our in house ex AC Cars workforce alongside the original AC factory body bucks and tooling, to achieve an exceptional finish that is worthy for a motorcar of this pedigree. The Ace is running its original engine (UMC 2094), rebuilt to high compression set up at the time of restoration. Furthermore it retains the original colour scheme of Maroon with Bristol Grey interior. The history file of this motorcar is fully comprehensive featuring photographs and race programmes. This is a unique opportunity to obtain a matching numbers competition car, eligible to the premier events of historic motorsport such as the Mille Miglia, Goodwood etc. FIA and FIVA eligible.
