Description

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 brackets

Period ENV differential

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.
