The AC Aceca was introduced in 1954 and was a coupe model based on the previous Ace model, with more simple bodywork. The first units were powered by an AC engine, soon followed by a Bristol engine and a few 2.6-liter tuned Ford Zephyr engines. The AC Aceca featured a tubular frame, aluminum body panels and an aluminum engine block, which made the model very light. With its 50/50 weight distribution and large 16 wheels, the AC Aceca had great handling capabilities. The suspension was independent at the front and used transverse leaf springs in the rear. Additional luxury features were brought to this grand tourer compared to previous models and the car was overall more comfortable with a quieter cabin thanks to rubber mounting on the differentials. Optional overdrive was available on 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears, and front wheel disk brakes were added in 1957.
Only 151 units of AC Aceca models, 169 Aceca Bristol examples and 8 Ford engined cars were built between 1954 and 1963, which was a successful production for the small manufacturer. A model in good condition with sound mechanics will be far more valuable and enjoyable. Servicing an AC can be complicated and onerous, and finding a good classic AC technician isn’t easy.
