1957 AC Ace Bristol: The Definitive AC Sports Car and One of Just 466 Bristol-Powered Aces Produced Between 1956 and 1963 According to accompanying AC factory records, this Ace Bristol, chassis BEX 274, is an original left-hand-drive export model, completed on April 17, 1957. Originally finished in silver with red leather upholstery and equipped with the 100D engine (numbered 603), this car was shipped to the US and sold new through Hap Dressels AC Imports Inc. in Arlington, Virginia. Recently discovered after two decades of static storage, this Ace Bristol presents in well-kept and largely original order. Not only does the car still retain its matching-numbers engine and factory data tag, its beautifully patinated red leather interior and carpeting remain intact. The chassis and bodywork also appear to be well preserved and quite presentable. Not only are Aces among the most beautiful sports cars of their time, they are especially endearing to drive. A Bristol is an ideal companion on tours such as the California Mille or the Colorado Grand, and in historic racing they are always competitive, sought-after entries. This particular example, with its period competition pedigree and long-term ownership, is all the more appealing. A wonderfully versatile and enticing 1950s sports car, this Ace Bristol ought to provide its new owner many years of enjoyment. One of Only 466 Ace Bristols Built; the Definitive AC Sports Car Raced in Regional SCCA Events at Thompson and Lime Rock in 1957 Retains Matching-Numbers 100D Engine per Factory Records Versatile Model Eligible for the Most Desirable Concours and Tours CHASSIS NO.
