1959 AC Ace-Bristol Roadster

Introduced at the 1953 London Motor Show, the AC Ace featured a tube chassis developed by legendary engineer John Tojeiro and an aluminium body reminiscent of Italian ‘Barchetta’ designs of the period. In 1956, Bristol’s outstanding two-litre, six-cylinder engine became available as an option, bestowing the Ace with the performance it deserved. The model became dominant in sportscar racing in the USA for many years and the Ace-Bristol has gone on to become an iconic 50’s sportscar that features in many of the world’s significant collecetions.

In October 1959, BEX1115 was dispatched from Thames Ditton to Texas. Originally finished in white with a black interior, it retains its matching-numbers engine per its data plate. Importantly, it also retains its number stampings on the original body components. In 1988 the car returned to the UK to join the Earl of Mexborough’s collection before passing to the previous owner in 2010.
