Allmän beskrivning : Trade-in car. This is a 1963 AC Aceca. It has chassis number: AEX796. Decrypting the chassis number shows us that AE stands for the AC engine used (Bristol and even a few Ford engines were also used). X stands for export followed by the numbers denoting the production sequence. Only 151 AC Aceca’s were ever built. We acquired this car form the second owner who had kept the car for over 50 years. AC enthusiasts and journalists have often referred to this car as the “missing” USA AC Aceca. You might ask how the car came by this title. The truth is actually quite simple: The previous owner has had the car since 1967 and since the mid 80’s was mainly garaged. In 1976 the previous owner has the car fully restored by a friendly mechanic. In 1963 the car came in a white finish, which was changed to “Light Sky Blue” during the restoration. Because the car had been garaged for a considerable period, many fans thought that the car had simply been lost. Nothing could be further from the truth. Despite being in storage for a long time, the previous owner took many preventative measure to ensure the car would endure. He removed certain fluids and up till 2007 regularly started the engine or turned the engine over so that the block would not seize up. That probably has helped us being able to get the engine running again without too much trouble. The engine runs but still will need a major service. To describe this car as a barnfind would be wrong. It certainly need some care and attention, but it has not been left to its own devices for decennia. Thanks to the dry storage the chassis is virtually rust-free. The bodywork only has minor signs of use. The panelwork is nice and thin with correct shut lines. The Light Sky Blue paintwork has suffered the most form its long storage. Polishing by itself probably will not suffice if you want a better than “Barnfind” finish. The interior trim has black leather with matching carpets which are still in good condition and have developed a lovely patina. The Aceca has a 1991 cc straight-six, triple carburettor engine delivering 90 Hp which is coupled to a manual 4-speed, overdrive transmission. We believe that in all likelihood the engine is still one and the same as the one fitted when it left the factory in 1963. This car is furthermore in very authentic condition with the original 56 spoke wire wheels, seats, sun-visors, wooden dashboard and wheel nuts. Finally the extensive file, old number plates and a considerable description of this special AC is certainly worth mentioning. THIS VEHICLE IS IN OUR STORAGE, VIEWING BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

AC Aceca är en sportcoupé som tillverkades av AC Cars från 1954 till 1963. Den var baserad på AC Ace, men hade ett fast tak och en bakdörr i halvkombi-stil, vilket gjorde den mer praktisk för dagligt bruk än den öppna- topp ess.

Aceca drevs av en mängd olika motorer genom åren, inklusive en 2,0-liters Bristol inline-sexa och en 2,6-liters Ford Zephyr inline-sexa. Den senare motorn var ett populärt val bland köparna, eftersom den var både kraftfull och pålitlig.

Förutom dess praktiska egenskaper var Aceca också känd för sin sportiga hantering och eleganta stil. Bilens fastback-taklinje och eleganta kurvor gav den ett distinkt utseende som skilde den från andra sportbilar från eran.

Idag är AC Aceca en mycket eftertraktad samlarbil, särskilt bland entusiaster som värdesätter dess kombination av prestanda och praktiska egenskaper. Priserna för Aceca kan variera kraftigt beroende på den specifika modellen, skicket och sällsyntheten, men välskötta exempel kan ge höga priser
