The AC Ace is perhaps the absolute best of the quintessential British sports car. Who better than the sports car concept"s inventor, the Britsh, to prefect the breed. The Ace incorporates beautiful handmade alloy body, an advance tubular chassis, 4 wheel independent suspension and superb design to yield the best true sports car of its era. The AC Ace is beautiful, quick and simply put, exciting. AC Aces came in several forms, but the best of the lot is the competition bred Bristol alloy cross push rod 6 cylinder drive train. One last option exists, the “hotter” D2 version of this engine which includes some other upgrades to make a potent performer of this little roadster.
This 1959 AC Ace/Bristol Roadster is a solid original, that is 60% of the way through a professional frame up restoration. It is a very well documented original D2 specification car. The mechanical components have been restored by Bristol expert Michael DiCola, while the frame and body were completed at Automotive Restorations, to show level standards.
To complete restoration the car needs painting, interior upholstery and assembly. This can be an absolutely top market finished car and good examples are typically selling for around $300K. This package is believed to be complete and is available for buyer inspection.
