1955 AC Aceca and thus, Mille Miglia eligible.

Originally equipped with the standard AC 6-cylinder engine. The car finally left Thames Ditton in 1957 equipped with the newly available and more powerful, Bristol 1971cc D2 6-cylinder engine (as documented in the old green log book) - perhaps this was THE earliest Bristol-engined test car? More research is required to find this out...

Two large history files accompany the car; including previous owner history and general technical information, the old green-logbook, period road test reports, instruction book and the Bristol Engine workshop manual.

Period photos of the car being raced at Brands Hatch and Silverstone in 1963.

- Currently in its correct factory colour (silver with red upholstery)
- Four speed manual gearbox with overdrive
- Large drum brakes

A well documented car; featuring in the Martin Buckley book entitled 'Classic Cars' (Page 67), Classic & Sportscar magazine October 1983 and Auto Retro (French magazine) in 1988.

Overall the car is clean and tidy but little maintenance and paintwork as required and, as such, is very much a car to be used and enjoyed. The mellow interior is a delight.

Viewing in Wandsworth, SW London.
