Introduced in 1953, the AC Aceca (pronounced a see ka) was a coupe grand tourer based on the AC Ace roadster. Both chassis were different though and the coupe was only slightly heavier than the coupe thanks to a well-engineered fabrication. Powered by an AC 2-liter engine for the first models, the AC Aceca’s power output increased almost each year of the production run. In 1956, a Bristol engine was introduced, based on a BMW 328 unit and producing 120 hp. A custom unit replaced the Moss gearbox and the car offered optional overdrive. Front disk brakes were also fitted in 1956. The Shelby Cobra, one of AC’s iconic models, replaced the model.
