1957 AC

Ace Bristol Roadster

Silver with Blue leather interior and Blue carpeting, 4-speed, Restored, Numbers Matching, Excellent provenance.

The AC Bristol is powered by a 1,971 CC OHV Inline 6-Cylinder Engine with Triple Solex Carburetors and produces 125 BHP at 5,000 RPM. The drivetrain runs through a 4-speed manual gearbox, it has Girling front disc brakes with rear drums and 4-wheel independent suspension. In the day, the Ace Bristol was a very responsive and capable package and the car to have.

This is one of the finest AC Ace Bristol automobiles in the United States. It has benefited from a complete frame off restoration about 12 years ago, and continues to be in pristine condition. It was restored by the U.S. authority on ACs Jim Feldman of Portland, Oregon.

This automobile has an excellent and interesting provenance. Originally sold to John Vesvey of London as a LHD vehicle, it was raced once in 1957 at Silverstone. This AC Ace Bristol surfaced again in the early seventies when it was purchased by Leon and Dutch Mandel of AutoWeek magazine.

The car, as purchased, needed a complete restoration to bring it back to its former glory. The JWF Restoration was finished in 2000. Virtually everything was done to proper AC factory new car standards. The only additions to the car are; a supplemental radiator fan, and a hidden radio/CD player.

The AC runs, handles, and looks as it should, and would qualify for almost any vintage sports car event.
