1953-1963 AC Ace Recreation project RHD


We are delighted to bring this unique build to market. We were approached by the current owner, who had discovered a period-built tojeiro-designed AC ladder chassis in Europe. It was an unusual find on the continent, as it had AC engine mounts with right-hand drive steering bracketry. This is where the AC Heritage works were entrusted to fit a supplied aluminium body to the chassis. The steel superstructure was manufactured to the original specification. During this time, we sourced all the period-correct suspension, drivetrain, engine, and gearbox for the project.

This historically accurate recreation has the following specifications.

  • Original unnumbered AC/ladder chassis

  • Aluminium bodywork

  • Body panels to correct specification (steel frame cladded and wrapped with aluminium panelwork)

  • Aluminium inner panels

  • Original flat windscreen

  •  Period correct transverse leafspring suspension with alfin drum brakes 

  • Period correct steering system (steering box,quadrant and arms)

  • period correct fuel tank with tank strap bracket

  • 16 inch road wheels

  • Two Litre AC engine for rebuild (UMB series)

  • Rebuilt carburettors

  • AC Moss Manual gearbox 

  • Various brightwork (badges,overriders,wheel spinners, boot lock, bonnet toilet seats)

  • Various lights (P700 headlights new, rear lights, number plate light)

  • Original AC pedal box setup(arms,pedals,master cylinders)

A fantastic candidate for a period-correct recreation of the AC Ace with original Thames Ditton lineage. Alternatively, it would be a suitable candidate for a FIA racecar.
